I was so excited to do this cookie exchange, thank you Carol (Just let me Quilt), it has been a lot of fun going around to the different blogs to see all the goodies. Lots of good recipes for sure.
So for your Guilty Pleasure I have chosen
Chocolate Caramel Bars
Yes, I know these are not cookies but wait until you taste one.
When I gave birth to my third son not too many moons ago a friend brought over some of these bars.
I have to tell ya getting up in the middle of the night to feed a newborn was a treat when I knew these bars were in the fridge waiting on me.
Chocolate Caramel Bars
Melt 50 Caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk (I used to do this over a double boiler) now just minutes in a microwave.
It takes time to unwrap these caramels, I usually do this first and then melt them while I am getting the rest of the recipe ready.
Mix until blended - one devils food cake mix (dry), 1/3 cup evaporated milk, and 1/2 cup butter (melted).
Once you have that mixed, spread HALF of this mixture in a buttered 9 X 13" pan.
Bake at 350 for six minutes.
Take your caramels that you melted and spread over the chocolate chips.
Usually while the cake part is in the oven for six minutes I start rolling out the other half on freezer paper. Just roll it out enough to cover the top of your caramel mixture.
I figured this out myself. It was hard dropping it from my spoon and then trying to spread it. So I got the ideal to do it this way, works a lot better.
Another hint: use the shinny side of the freezer paper...don't ask me how I know.
Then you take it and flip it over your dish.
HINT: After you roll out your mixture, cut your freezer paper down some, makes it so much easier to do this next step.
Don't worry if it is not perfect!
Bake at 350 for fifteen minutes
There you have it!
This is what's left over...ummmm ummmm good.
Glad you could join me!
This is a family favorite and now my grandsons, he (now don't tell his parents)...granted I cut them up small but he had part of mine, then went to his grandfather and had part of his, then his dad gave him one....well...you get it...just keep coming back for more.
Hope all of you have a fabulous Christmas Season!
Here is the line up from the week, from what I have seen so far there are some delicious recipes out there. I have a few that I am going to make, eventually.
