Wow…this was an experiment, and I’m almost speechless about how good these are. It is hard to describe the yumminess…You need to try these. I need to make these again, because they are already gone.
I’ve shared this recipe before on Easybaked, a very long time ago. It is a wonderful recipe I called caramel chip bars. This was one of my very first recipes on this blog, and if you click on the link you can see the recipe AND my awful beginning photography!!! Lol.
These are very versatile brownie bars. I make them all the time with a variety of cake mix flavors and chips. It is a perfect way to use up half-empty bags of chips.
This time….I added Oreos, and the result was too incredibly yummy to not share with you all. So here you go: (printable recipe)
- 1 box of chocolate cake mix
- 1/3c. oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 bag of white chocolate chips
- 1 box of Double Stuf Oreos
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 32 unwrapped Kraft caramels
- 1 (14oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line a 9×13″ cake pan with foil.
- Combine cake mix, oil and eggs.
- Blend well and stir in all of the chips (mixture will be very thick).
- Press a little less than half of the mixture into bottom of pan (it will press into a very thin layer and you might be able to see the bottom of the pan, but when it bakes it will fill in).
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- While this is baking, in a medium saucepan, combine butter, caramels and condensed milk.
- Cook over low/medium heat until melted and smooth (stir constantly!)
- When cake has baked for 10 minutes, remove from oven and place 24 Oreo cookies over the top of the partially baked cake.
- Spread caramel over Oreos.
- Top with remaining cake/chip mixture.
- There is a technique to this- you cant just spoon the batter on top or it will just mix in with the melted caramel. Instead, take a small ball of dough/chips and press it very flat between your hands. Lay this on top of the caramel and repeat the process, like a patchwork quilt, until the entire top is covered. It is ok to have a few gaps.
- Bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes.
- Remove from oven and cool 20 minutes.
- Gently lift from pan and peel foil from edges.
- Cool completely before cutting. Makes about 24 bars.
My thoughts: You have to make these!!!!!!! YUM!!!!!
