Blondie's Caramel Cookie Bar

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup White Kamut flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp French Gray coarse salt
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 (11 oz.) package caramels unwrapped
  • 1 (12 oz.) package milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips (We love the bigger ones for this recipe by Guittard)

Instructions

  1. Mix butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, baking soda and salt together in a bowl using hand-held or electric mixer.

  2. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray. Press 3/4 of dough evenly on the bottom of pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (until lightly browned.) Don't over-bake. Take out and set aside.

  3. While crust is baking, melt remaining 3 tbsp butter with the cream and caramels over low heat on top of stove. Be extra careful and stir constantly, as this can burn easily. Cook just until everything is melted and smooth. Pour melted mixture over baked crust.

  4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over caramel mixture. Take pieces of dough and flatten in between palms. Place on top of chocolate and caramel mixture as evenly as you can. No need to cover entire top perfectly, there will be gaps in between pieces of dough. Put back into oven and continue baking at 350 degress for another 15 minutes.

  5. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
