Caramel Crunch Bars – TwD

This week our Tuesday With Dorie host is Whitney of What’s Left On The Table and her choice was the recipe for Dorie’s Caramel Crunch Bars.  I’m sure it’s just me but the name of this recipe left me scratching my head since there’s absolutely no caramel at all.  And that’s fine by me since I’m not a huge fan of caramel anyway :) A brown-sugar chocolate chip type cookie on the bottom… a layer of melted chocolate… covered in a layer of toffee bits?  Come on… you tell me… what’s not to like?!?!?!!!! {continue}
These are bar-style cookies… the kind you make in a pan and then cut after cooling.  They are definitely not difficult to make although I did have a couple of “challenges”.  First off, the recipe calls for toffee bits and all I had was a bag of Heath Toffee and Milk Chocolate bits.  I think it was fine but the top layer has bits of chopped chocolate which create a different look than Dorie’s picture.  Eh, I’m ok with that :) The second “challenge” was the top layer decided it wasn’t going to set up properly.  After waiting about an hour I put the whole pan in the freezer for about 35-45 minutes and hoped for the best.  The result?  These were incredibly difficult to cut! LOL.  DH said they tasted great just the same.  Me?  I think they’re very very sweet (though I’m not a huge fan of chocolate so don’t let my opinion dissuade you one bit).

For the recipe, check out hostess Whitney’s blog… or better yet… see page 112 of Dorie’s book Baking From My Home To Yours. To see the creations of the rest of the TwD Bakers, check out the Tuesday’s With Dorie Blogroll.

Have a delicious day,
