Caramel Snickers Bars

Adapted from Cookies and Cups

Yield - 20 squares

2 cups flour

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 whole egg + 1 yolk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

4 regular sized Snickers bars, chopped

1/2 of a 14-ounce can of Dulce de Leche

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  2. Line a 8 x 12” pan with aluminum foil and spray the inside with cooking spray.  
  3. Whisk together the flour, oats, powder, soda, and salt in a small bowl.  Set aside.
  4. Beat together the brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy in the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment.  Beat in the egg and the yolk, and the vanilla.  Beat on high speed until the mixture is a pale brown color.
  5. Add in the flour mixture and mix on slow speed until just combined.
  6. Stir in the chopped Snickers bars by hand.
  7. Spread into the prepared pan and dollop about half the can of Dulce de Leche on top.  Swirl with a butter knife.
  8. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and smooth everything down.
  9. Bake for 35-40 minutes.  The top should be golden and the middle will still be a little wiggly.
  10. Let cool on a wire rack and then place in the fridge overnight before cutting.
