Total Time


3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup chocolate chips

1 (11-ounce) bag caramels, unwrapped

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt butter in heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Continue cooking, watching closely, 5 minutes or until butter foams and turns deep golden brown. Immediately remove from heat; pour into large bowl. Refrigerate 15 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 375°F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Spray bottom of foil-lined pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Add brown sugar, eggs and vanilla to cooled browned butter; mix well. Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread 2/3 of cookie dough into prepared pan. Reserve remaining dough.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine caramels and whipping cream in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving in 30-second intervals until completely melted. Pour mixture over cookie dough in pan; spread to 1/4 inch from sides. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt. Drop pieces of reserved cookie dough over top of caramel. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake 19-23 minutes or until golden brown around edges and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

  6. STEP 6

    Lift bars from pan, using foil ends. Cut into squares.
