Chocolate caramel nut barsPosted: May 23, 2009 | |
My weekly baking for H garage buddies continues. They have loved everything I have sent, but have especially loved the caramel nutty type bars the best. So this week when I came across this recipe on Kraft.com, I knew this is what I would be making!
1 bag (14 oz.) KRAFT Caramels
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Place caramels and 1/3 cup of the milk in heavy saucepan; cook on low heat until caramels are completely melted, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; set aside. Mix remaining milk, dry cake mix and butter in large bowl. Press half of the cake mixture firmly onto bottom of 13×9-inch baking pan to form crust. Bake 10 minutes.
SPRINKLE 1 cup of the walnuts and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chunks over crust. Top with caramel mixture; carefully spread to edges of pan. Top with teaspoonfuls of the remaining cake mixture; press gently into caramel mixture with back of spoon. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup each walnuts and chocolate chunks.
BAKE an additional 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely. Cut into 32 bars to serve.
