Chocolate and Caramel are two of my most favorite things. My hubby is a big fan of Twix bars and this recipe turns out just like Twix if you leave out the coconut and pecans! These are a simple treat to make and have on hand.
Chocolate Caramel Cookie Bars
What you need :
1 Pkg. Caramel Bits, 11 oz.
2 Tbsp. Milk
1 Cup Shredded Coconut
1 Pkg. Milk Chocolate Chips, 11 oz.
Line a 13×9 inch pan with parchment or wax paper.
Arrange the cookies in rows and columns, you should get a 5×7 grid using 35 of the 40 cookies.
Melt the Caramel and Milk in a microwave safe bowl. Start at 30 seconds and stir, then in 15 second increments stirring after each until smooth and no lumps.
Pour over the cookies and spread to cover evenly.
Sprinkle the Coconut evenly over the Caramel.
Melt the Chocolate Chips in a microwave safe bowl, again start at 30 seconds and stir, then in 15 second increments stirring after each until smooth and no lumps.
Pour over the Coconut and spread to cover evenly.
Place the Pecan halves evenly spaced in rows and columns so that they will be in the center of a bite size piece when cut, they don’t have to match the cookie layout.
Let set then cut into bite size pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
