White Chocolate Caramel Bars

I love white chocolate, especially with caramel. In fact my favorite fondue is white chocolate caramel. Yummy! So when I accidently opened a bag of white chocolate yesterday this idea came to mind. I love my homemade carmelitas and the idea of using white chocolate made me super excited. When I pulled them out of the oven at first I couldn’t wait to cut into them, so not following my own directions I cut into them for my first bite. And today I will report I still have a blister in my mouth, yes there is a reason you wait for hot caramel to cool. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

White Chocolate Caramel Bars

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoon cream
  • 32 caramels
  • ¾ cup + 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup rolled oats, I like to use 1/3 rolled oats & 2/3 quick oats
  • 1 ¼ cup flour
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 package white chocolate chips

Directions

Melt butter, caramels and cream in a double boiler over medium heat, set aside.

In a separate bowl cream butter and brown sugar. Mix flour, oats, salt, and baking soda. Combine with creamed butter and sugar. Pat 3/4 of the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Pour caramel mixture evenly over crust, sprinkle with chocolate chips. Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture over caramel. Return to oven and bake an additional 15-17 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting.

Note if you like your chips melted simply pour the white chocolate chips over the crust once you remove it from the oven, top with caramel and crumble remaining mixture over caramel. Bake for 15-17 minutes.

My review: So I was only going to have one…BUT when I cut the bars I could let the outside crust go to waste. I always cut the out ¼ inch to ½ inch off simple for presentation. I ate the entire outer crust.

Kids review: They loved it! I was surprised because they are not big white chocolate fans, unless it is with strawberries.
