Awesome Gooey Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars |

This Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars recipe came from a brand new cookbook my friend Shelly Jaronsky wrote called The Cookies & Cups Cookbook, named after her wildly popular dessert blog.

The Cookies & Cups Cookbook

This cookbook is a reverse of what you usually find in cookbooks, with a whole lot of savory recipes, followed by a short dessert section.

Instead Shelly focuses on eating dessert first, sharing dozens of tantalizing treat recipes, with a section on her favorite family meals at the end. I love how Shelly thinks!

Making Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars |

From the moment I opened the book and perused the pages, I knew this would be the first recipe I would try.

After all, it’s salted caramel and chocolate chip cookies… TOGETHER.

For me, that’s the perfect marriage of sweet flavors and textures.

    All that salt and caramel!!! I’m afraid to make these, I might eat them all myself!


  9. Roxanaposted May 13, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    Oh do those look like a perfect weekend project.  The thick layer of caramel in the middle is making me swoon!

    MMmh, these look so good!


  12. Elleposted May 18, 2016 at 8:40 am

    Desserts are my favorite and these bars looked to good to pass up. However, my 4 teenaged boys and I all agreed they were a little too rich. I think I’d cut the caramel layer down to half the amount and even lower the amount of sugar in the cookie layer if I make them again. Thanks for sharing though! You have so many beautiful recipes to chose from I’m going to check out some of your recipes now.

      Oops! That’s “too” good to pass up. Sorry, couldn’t let that go. I just had to fix it. Lol

      I agree, VERY rich. It doesn’t say to refrigerate before cutting, but it may help. I let them cool, but it was a very warm day and I had a really hard time cutting them. There was chocolate and caramel all over the place. They weren’t pretty like in the picture, but my husband still liked them.

    These look so good n gooey, I want to lick the screen!!!  These would make an amazing chat n my diet. :)

    Don’t panic if this looks more like bread pudding, right out of  the oven. Once everything has cooled, and can be sliced into bars, I dare you to save some for the rest of the family! OHHH MYY! This is a keeper! P.S. I only had salted butter on hand. I just added less sea salt. Perfect.


  17. Taraposted June 9, 2016 at 7:37 pm

    I keep finding amazing looking recipes with caramel, and I keep hoping for one that will have a caramel that isn’t made using the sore bought wrapped kind. But these look absolutely divine! I have to make them so I’m going to try to figure out a caramel from scratch. Any tips? Or ideas of recipes that would work similar to the wrapped caramels?


    • June — August 4th, 2016 @ 9:43 am

      Our stores carry Caramel Bits in an 11 0unce size package.  They are small round balls of caramel that melt quite quickly and are equally as good as wrapped caramels.  I’m not sure but I think they are made by Kraft.


  18. Shiva mantraposted June 18, 2016 at 7:20 am

    That looks so good!


  19. Lauraposted July 7, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    My favorites together look so good I’ll be making these for sure thanks for the recipe


  20. Melodee Biedenharnposted July 7, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    I made this for our July 4th cookout. The bars are good. My only change would be to not use the foil lining. It adhered to my pan and had to be scrapped out with a spatula.

    These are excellent! The family loved them. The recipe says room temperature for so many days…we put them in the frig after being cut up and they lasted longer and were even better cold. On Pinterist it’s the pin everyone goes to and saves off my board., even people I don’t know. I’ve never seen a response like that on there thus far. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

    I’m wondering how these would be if I used caramel or chocolate flavored sweetened condensed milk? I picked up a couple of cans but can’t seem to find a recipe worthy. lol

    OMG! These look incredible! I need to make these ASAP!

    I made these last night and they were so. GOOD. Holy cow. My boyfriend loved them as well. Waited about 1 hour for them to cool a little and couldn’t wait any longer. I saw some people saying they were too rich and I disagree. Perfect recipe.
