Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Bars

  • Cooking Time:

    2-3 hours
  • Servings:

    10

Ingredients

1 c. butter, 2 sticks
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 c. flour
11 oz. caramel bits, pkg
1/2 T. sea salt

Salted Caramel may be just one of my favorites, that is why when I found this recipe for Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Bars, I just had to make them.

  1. Coat the bottom of your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Beat together butter, sugar and vanilla with your electric mixer.
  3. Once combined well add egg and salt.
  4. One cup at a time add flour until dough ball forms.
  5. Cover the palm of your hands with flour to form two balls, making one ball a little over half of the dough.
  6. Press the larger dough in the bottom of the crock.
  7. Continue to dust palms of hand with flour to keep the dough from sticking.
  8. Evenly spread the caramels over the dough in the bottom of the slow cooker. (If unable to find bits, unwrap and cut caramels in bits and spread over dough. If you have to cut in bits you may want to do this first before you make the dough, as it will take some time.)
  9. Crumble the remaining dough over the caramel layer.
  10. Top off by scanting the sea salt over the top.
  11. Cover. Cook covered on Low for 2 1/2 – 3 hours.

NOTE: Let the bars cool before removing from slow cooker.

Serve in small bars! YUMMY!

Optional: A Facebook Friend suggested adding Chocolate Chips to this recipe!

what size crock is this best in? I have an oblong bigger one and a regular size round one, input?

Could I use caramel dip instead of caramel bits? I’m snowed in & have every ingredient except for the caramels! I do have dip though (like you would use for apples)

What are caramel bits? Is that the wrapped caramels that are little squares? Or is it like a chocolate chip but caramel? Thanks!

I’d like to see an answer to Sandy’s question about crock size. I also have the same two she mentioned…which one would work better?

Do you think maybe unsalted peanuts (chopped) would be a good ingredient? Either on the caramels or mixed in with the second half of the dough?

This is in my crock right now and the butter coming to the top is rather significant. Anyone else have this issue? What to do?

437 calories and 21.6 grams of fat!!! Are you seriously suggesting we eat or serve this! Too much of both. Have you tried any versions that would cut the calories and fat? Would not serve to my family as is. Not to mention carbs and sugar?!

It’s a wide, wide internet. Perhaps you could use your time to find a recipe more to your liking, rather than criticizing ones you do not intend to make.

Calories shmalories! I cannot wait to try these! I need a treat for a pot luck and this sounds like a real crowd pleaser. When they are done do I let them cool in the crock or take out right away?

I just received one of the new “Casserole Cookers” – about the size of a 9×13 pan – would this work in that or would it be too thin?

This was a mess. Way too much butter and caramel and the top will never crisp up like the photo shows. Lots of good recipes from this site but this one didn’t work at all. I used my oblong crock btw.

I made this recipe yesterday. I used my oblong cooker, followed the recipe exactly as written, used regular carmels quartered. I cooked for 2 1/2 hours, took lid off and cooled for 30 minutes. Served with a scope of vanilla ice cream on top. We are going to add chocolate chips next time for a twist.

Yummylicious 🙂

I am going to Veganize this recipe and try it. I will use a flax egg and vegan marg of course and see how it goes. I just looked at the nutritional (lol) values so I will definitely be sharing this dessert with others. Thanks and it sounds awesome.

[…] these are made in crock pot and the creator of recipe’s picture looks way different. Doesn’t seem feasible to get many square items out of a crock pot surface. https://www.getcrocked.com/2014/02/01/slow-cooker-salted-caramel-bars/ […]
