Heath bars and caramel sandwiched in between two cookie bar layers. Your new dessert decadence.

I thought before everyone starts making their new year’s resolutions, I better slip this decadent guy into the line up!  Chocolate Chip Caramel Heath Bars.  You can thank me later!  Chocolate Chip Caramel Heath Bars

I have always been a fan of cookie bars!  They are tough…they hold up to picnics, kids, sitting on a plate for hours on end at a party!!  I love cookies, I love caramel and I love heath…so there pretty much is nothing NOT to love about these bars!  They can be dressed up with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce or they can be plated and stacked for a group of hungry soccer team kids!  These are great to pack and go!! 

I first tasted this recipe years ago on New Year’s Day, to be exact, at my aunt and uncle’s house.  Our family has a huge New Year’s day party, hosted by my grandparents and my aunt and uncle.  My aunt made this dessert that night and it has been a favorite ever since!  My uncle isn’t really one who does sweets {GASP!  I know!!!  I am pretty sure he is adopted!  :) } but I clearly remember my aunt saying “This is one of the only desserts your uncle will eat!”  so…I was pretty sure at that moment that it would rock…and it did!

  • 1 roll Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Large 30 ounce roll
  • 1/4 cup Caramel Sauce
  • 5 each Full Size Heath Bars


  • Start out by spraying the bottom and sides of an 8 inch Brownie Pan. Next press half of the roll of cookie dough into the bottom of the pan forming the bottom layer of the cookie bar.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and while cooling slightly, add Heath bars to a ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin.
  • When slightly cool (does not need to be cooled all the way) spread the caramel sauce onto the layer. Top with the Heath pieces.
  • Press the remaining cookie dough on the top of the heath pieces and caramel forming the top of the cookie bar.
  • Bake for approximately 12 minutes.
  • Cool slightly. May serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
  • Run a butter knife around the edges of the pan. Cut a line down the center of the pan and then cut crosswise to make bars.
