Sugar Cookie Base

Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Let cookies cool on the pan.

Caramel Sauce

Let cookies fully cool to room temperature before adding the caramel sauce and chocolate.

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, add the unwrapped caramel squares and heavy cream. Heat in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth.

Evenly divide the caramel sauce over the cookies. Spoon the sauce in the centre of each cookie and spread, making sure to not spread over the edge. Work fast because the sauce does harden quickly.

Chocolate Ganache

After the caramel is on the cookies let them sit in the fridge for a few minutes while you make the ganache.

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl add the chocolate chips, set aside. In another microwave safe bowl add the heavy cream and heat till just before boiling, (about 30 seconds).

Pour the heated cream over the chocolate chips and let sit for a few minutes. Mix chocolate and cream together. If there are still chunks of chocolate in the microwave for a few seconds and stir again. The ganache should be completely smooth. Evenly spoon and smooth the ganache over the caramel layer of each cookie.

Let cookie sit in the fridge for a few minutes to stiffen the ganache before enjoying.

Storing The Cookies

These cookies should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. You can keep them at room temperature but the ganache will melt in a warm house. When storing in the fridge be sure to bring cookies to room temperature before enjoying.

Can I Make the Cookies Smaller?

Yes, you can definitely make the cookies smaller. Instead, scoop 1.5 tablespoons worth of cookie dough and bake for 7-8 minutes. The amount of caramel sauce and chocolate ganache stay the same.

How to Make Sugar Cookie Bars

To start preheat the oven to 350 and line a 8×8 square baking pan with parchment paper. Why use parchment paper? It keeps the bars from sticking to the pan and allows you to easily remove them from the pan.

In a large bowl beat softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy, this usually takes 2-3 minutes. You can make this in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment on, in a bowl using a hand mixer, or by hand.

Add in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Next, add the salt and flour. Mix until well combined. Lastly, fold in the sprinkles.

Once everything is combined pour the batter into your lined baking pan. Smooth and spread the mixture till it is evenly covers the entire pan. You can smooth it with a spatula but I mind using my hands works best. Lastly, add a few more sprinkles on top, this is optional but I love the way they look.

Bake for 28 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and middle is set. Allow the bars to fully cool in the pan before removing and slicing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

STORING THE Bars

These bars should be stored at room temperature in an airtight container. If stored properly these cookies bars keep well up to 4 days after baking.

What Kind of sprinkles should I use?

You can use any type of sprinkles you like. I personally prefer jimmies, these are the long sprinkles.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY EGGS TO ROOM TEMPERATURE?

Yes you do. Room temperature ingredients break down easier in the batter. This will give you a chewier bar.

If you forget to take your eggs out of the fridge, no worries! Just run them under warm tap water for a few minutes and this will bring them to room temperature.
