Caramel Bars

Caramel Bars

A crunchy biscuit base with a layer of soft creamy caramel and indulgent chocolate is what I call a super duper naughty treat. A bite of one of these ended up being 2 pieces and far too many calories to even think about. These very moorish bars are perfect with a cuppa tea and an afternoon on the sofa with a good book. As mummy's we need to make sure we have a little me time, even if it is only a quick 1 hour on the weekends in between cleaning and cooking!

Caramel Bars

These Caramel Bars are a great way to use up some of those slightly old biscuits still sitting in the cookie jar that just don't get eaten, or the kids least favourite usually because they are not covered in chocolate or sugar! Once made, they do store well, either out for about 10 days or so, or you can store them in the fridge for a few months, but the the bars will harden up a little.

Caramel Bars

Making caramel using condensed milk is cheating a little, but it's the easy way. Sometimes taking the easy was isn't all bad, specially which how amazing condensed milk caramel tastes. I recently also made a condense milk Caramel dip recipe with is super quick and delicious. Instead of golden syrup you can use caster sugar, just remember to make sure it is fully dissolved before placing in the oven, or you might find the caramel isn't smooth and has small sugar crystals.

Caramel Bars

When I was pregnant with my first child, I some how almost 5 stones...yes I know it's probably as much as a 8 year old child, and back then I didn't cook much or bake...so could you imagine how much weight I could of gained if I did?! When I tried these bars ( just a tiny bite as I try to stay away from dairy), I thought to myself that these are so delicious and I'm sure I could of devoured these in days back then! Things happen for a reason, and for the sake of my thighs I'm glad I've given up dairy.
