Description

Who was the genius who started adding sea salt to dessert?

Ingredients

  • 4-½ cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 20 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted And Cooled To Room Temperature
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 whole Egg Yolks
  • 4 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 3 cups Chocolate Chips
  • 14 ounces, weight Caramel Candy Squares, Unwrapped
  • 4 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • Sea Salt For Sprinkling Over Bars

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking soda using a whisk. Set aside.

Using a mixer, combine the melted butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until evenly combined. Add the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture in small batches, mixing on a low speed until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Add the unwrapped caramels and heavy cream to a large microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high until the candy is melted, stirring every 20 seconds. This should take about 2 to 3 minutes.

Press half of the cookie dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Pour the hot caramel over the dough. Sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. Top the caramel with the remaining cookie dough in spoonfuls, until evenly covered. Sprinkle with additional sea salt.

Bake the bars in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the edges start to pull away from the pan. Then remove the pan from the oven and allow the bars to cool before cutting and serving.

Adapted from Two Peas and their Pod. Thank you for the great recipe!

Very rich, but AMAZING. My coworkers raved about them and they were gone almost immediately. Definitely a great one to share with friends!

Very rich, thick and delicious. This recipe requires a lot of ingredients. If I were to make it again I might 1/2 the recipe and make a smaller pan as suggested by Two Peas and a Pod. Thanks for the recipe.
