Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 5 oz butter unsalted, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips I used 60% cocoa
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips I used semi-sweet because that's what I had on hand
  • 13 oz caramel sauce my jar was just a bit under 13 oz

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.  Grease or line a 9x13" pan.
  • In a medium-sized bowl whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and brown sugar together.  Mix until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.  Add vanilla and mix until combined.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture.  Mix until blended and then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Press half of the batter into the bottom of the pan.  Pour or spoon the caramel sauce over the batter and then crumble the remaining batter over the caramel sauce.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.  Allow to cool completely before cutting.  I found that chilling them helped with cutting these bars.
  • Store leftover bars in an airtight container.  I also stored mine covered in the refrigerator.
