My friend Sandy looked at the recipe rotation for February and all she said was 'Make sure i get some of those Caramel Crunch Bars!'. Most weeks she is part of my group of friends that taste and review my baking efforts, so I made sure some were put aside for her and her kids. They loved them!
Whitney from What's left on the table chose this weeks recipe. I'm not sure if i would make this typically but i'm so glad i did, they are delicious! I love the cookie part, so moist and yummy! I can't really handle dark or milk chocolate very well, i get headaches, so i have just taken my paracetamol (as i have just eaten a few of these).
My youngest son was watching me make these and was fascinated with the melted chocolate being spread across the base. I didn't catch him in time and he dipped his finger into the chocolate!
I didn't have any adequate pans so i bought some disposable foil baking pans and used two 7x7 inch pans. It worked really well and the base wasn't too thin.
As well as distributing some amongst friends and neighbours, i brought some to a playdate my kids and I were attending this afternoon. One mum asked if she could take the whole plate home. A successful baking attempt, yay! My husband and I are really trying to lose weight and get fit so I really shouldn't be eating all this deliciousness but everything in moderation I say :) I haven't that many I promise!
