I still had some of my Crock Pot Dulce de Leche left after our Mock Fried Ice Cream and I needed a bar cookie to take to an event so I decided to put that dulce de leche to work!
I used a recipe for dulce de leche bars I had from Betty Crocker and just tweeked it a bit. I added chocolate. Not sure you can really have caramel without chocolate – can you?
The base of the bars is a combination of flour, butter, brown sugar and oats.
Use a pastry cutter to combine the ingredients.
After it is combined press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan reserving 1/4 cup of the crumb mixture for the topping.
- 1½ C flour
- 1½ C old fashioned oats
- 1 C packed brown sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 C butter, softened
- 1½ C dulce de leche
- 1 C toffee bits
- 1 C chocolate chips
