Dulce de Leche Bars

Dulce de Leche Bars

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.
