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?

For the but­ter ingre­di­ent what is 1.c 2 sticks mean? How muChef but­ter do I need?

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.

how many peo­ple do you think it would serve? i could prob eat the lot myself mind but in real­i­ty? 4–6?

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 9x13 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/ […]
