Chocolate Caramel Binge Bars Recipe

Chocolate Caramel Binge Bars Recipe
Almost everyone loves the combination of chocolate and caramel, and they have been combined in the filling for the following Chocolate Caramel Binge Bars. A simple, chewy oatmeal crust and topping complements these delicious bars.
Although you can choose to unwrap a package of caramels, it is much easier to purchase a large block of caramel (Peter’s is a favorite brand), and cut off what you need. Not only is this easier, but the caramel is made with real cream and butter, so it is much better than the caramels in the packages you have to unwrap. The block lasts for a long time when stored in a cool place, and doesn’t get hard, so don’t worry about having it around for too long. Some stores also carry packages of unwrapped caramels, you’ll want to use them to save time if a block isn’t available.
