I would never say no to a salted caramel treat !  Caramel on it’s own is one of my favorites, but salted is even better. And these Salted Caramel Chocolate Bars fit the bill 100%.

I know there are people who do not much care for salted caramel, but I think most would love this recipe. The crust is more of a gooey chocolate layer, than a cake/cookie type crust, which makes it all the more a delight.

The photo shows every layer perfectly and just wants one to take a bite into it, don’t you think? Needless to say – these did not last very long !
