Okay, I’m trying really, really hard to come up with an interesting and witty blog post. I really am. But the thing is, I’m distracted. By the season finale of New Girl. I’m not sure why, but I feel a little embarrassed to admit to watching this show but seriously, could Zooey Deschanel be any more adorable? So since I’m having a sitcom-induced writers block, let’s just get to the food, shall we?
These bars are chewy, salty, caramel-y, chocolate-y bars of deliciousness. They’re essentially the best chocolate chip cookie recipe made into bar form, with salted caramel swirled into it. Mmm hmmm. It’s got that whole salty-sweet thing going on that I don’t think I will ever in my entire life get sick of.
I adapted this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker, but instead of making caramel sauce from caramels and heavy cream, I simply bought the Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce from Trader Joe’s. Cutting out the step of making the caramel sauce makes these bars even easier and quicker to make? Dangerous.
Marc and I both agreed that these bars are best slightly warm, either after cooling straight from the oven for 30 minutes, or heating in the microwave for a few seconds. Speaking of, it’s a commercial break. Time to heat up one of these babies and get back to Zooey.
