Chocolate Salted Caramel Bars

Chocolate Salted Caramel Bars

There is just something about the combination of rich chocolate and gooey caramel that gets me.  Although I love both of them, finding just the right recipe to satisfy my craving, without being too rich (or setting back my weight loss goal) can be very hard.  These chocolate salted caramel bars are just perfect!  Since this recipe makes a 9×13 pan, I'm going to be making them & taking half to one of my sisters every time…or I might end up eating them all!

Chocolate Salted Caramel Bars
Caramel Layer Ingredients:
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
Chocolate Layer Ingredients:
  • 8 oz chocolate bar
  • 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • Coarse sea salt for sprinkling
Caramel Layer
  1. Combine the butter, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and corn syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir until butter is melted. Increasing to medium-high, bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Once it starts boiling, reduce it to a simmer - stirring constantly. The mixture will start to thicken, and lighten up.
  4. Pour the caramel into a greased 9x13 bread pan. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Chocolate Layer
  1. Add the chocolate, butter, and corn syrup in a heat-safe bowl.
  2. Melt over a pan of hot water, until mixture is smooth and glossy.
  3. Pour the chocolate over the chilled caramel.
  4. Allow mixture to cool before sprinkling course sea salt over the top.
  5. Serve chilled - this dessert melts easily!

  18. These look so yummy! What’s not to like about chocolate and salt? Though I don’t think I would use corn syrup because of the GMO issue. I’ll have to figure something else out.

    Thanks for linking up to Fabulously Frugal Thursday!

  19. I made these last weekend, and think I may have done something wrong… I followed the directions to a T, however, when I cut into the dessert-the caramel was complete goo. I chilled the caramel for an hour before the chocolate layer went on. I’m confused. It didn’t turn out to be like the picture at all. We still ate it, it was delicious….just gooey. Any idea what went wrong??

    • Did you put it back in the fridge after you did the chocolate layer? I had that issue when I got a little (okay, very) impatient and didn’t give it time to cool fully after adding the chocolate.

  20. Oh my! These look so yummy! I would love for you to come and link up to That’s Fresh Friday and share!

  21. Hello these look so delicious and I wanna make them for a gathering I’m having. I have one question what kind of chocolate bar did you use, Milk chocolate, semi sweet, dark?

    • When I’m making a batch for just adults, I’ll use dark chocolate. If I’m making them for my kids, I either use milk or semi-sweet. It’s just a matter of what you prefer. I’m a fan of all chocolate, but the darker the better 🙂

  22. These are seriously making me regret giving up sugar! Pinning for later 🙂

  23. Mmm I want that. Thanks for sharing. Hello from Motivation Monday!

  24. You are a generous person, sharing these! I mean, I would want to share them. I’d mean to share them. And then I wouldn’t be able to, judging by the pics. They look way too good!
