Butterscotch Caramel Bites

Posted on

My husband recently brought home a delicious cookie bar from work.

I wasn’t even sure what was in it, but I devoured it.

I later found out it was caramel and chocolate chips.

So I asked him to please get me the recipe.

At the last minute, IΒ decided that I was going to use butterscotch chips instead.

What did my husband say when he tried mine?

Something to the effect of, “I wonder if you didn’t bake them correctly, or if he gave me the wrong recipe.”

So I broke down into tears and kicked him out.

Haha, just kidding.

Actually, I remembered that he doesn’t like caramel or butterscotch. πŸ™‚

True, they didn’t come out just like the one he had brought home, but this one is delicious nonetheless.

To tell you the truth, many pieces didn’t even get past the cutting process.

I thought I was smart to cut them into bite-sized pieces, but that only makes you eat more of them!

They are addictive.

They sort of jump off the plate and into your mouth by accident.

I’m serious!Β

I definitely recommend that you make these.

Just don’t listen to my husband, ok?

Butterscotch Caramel Bites (my adaptation)

Crust:

  • 2 Cups white wheat flour (you can use all purpose)
  • 2 Cups quick- cooking oats
  • 1.5 Cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup butter, softened

Filling

  • 1 Cup Butterscotch Caramel ice cream topping
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Cup butterscotch chips

In a large bowl, blend all crust ingredients at low speed until crumbly.

Press half of the mixture in bottom of aΒ greased 9 x 13 inch pan (reserve rest for topping).

Bake pan at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine ice cream topping and 3 Tablespoons flour.Β  Set aside.

When you take the crust out of the oven, sprinkle with butterscotch chips.

Drizzle with caramel mixture.

Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.

Bake and additional 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cook completely.

Refrigate 1 or 2 hours until filling is set.

Cut into bite-sized pieces and enjoy!

  17. Hi… I wanted to try this recipe but didn’t have caramel at home, also my hubby doesn’t like it as well. So thought to try it without it, and replaced peanut butter (just because i love peanut butter, in everything :D) and it came out really really good. My husband became a fan of it and I will try with caramel next time. Maybe he will like that as well.
    Thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚
