Peanut Butter Caramel Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars |


OMG you guys. I am seriously about to blow your mind with these cookie bars.  They have ALL of my favorite  things – caramel, toffee, peanut butter, and OF COURSE, chocolate!

I am a HUGE fan of cookie bars. They are so, SO easy to make and there is just nothing like a big fat cookie bar chock full of goodness.  For those of us with limited time on our hands who don’t want to worry about taking cookies in and out of the oven for an hour – bars are the way to go.

PLUS…bars allow for layers. Layers of flavor. Layers of creamy, caramelly goodness that just melts in your mouth.

It starts with an amazing cookie base that is chock full of flavor. The cookie bars are fortified with oats which helps it withstand the decadence that is sandwiched between the cookie layers.

An ooey, gooey caramel layer is the perfect center to these cookie bars. Perfection, without the mess. The caramel stays put and is the perfect counterpart to the cookie.

  26. Hey Trish ! Actually I’m French and your recipe looks AMAZING !! I would really like to make your cookies at home but in France, it’s grammes instead of oz and my computer doesn’t wanna convert in grammes when I ask it to … Do you have the quantity in grammes ? Or could you convert it for me ? (only for the caramel). And what does “c” mean ? Thank you :) Waiting impatiently for your answer !!
    See you later !

  27. Oh my! If these taste as good as the picture looks I can’t wait to make them!

  31. I just made a batch of these, and they are cooling right now!

  32. Making my second batch today, to share with my dentist. :) He’s a real sugar ho. These are wonderful, they are everything a bar cookie should be. Trish, Thanks so much for this recipe!

  33. WOW! These look amazing! I also love your photography :)

  34. So, I saw these and just HAD to try them! I love me some toffee….and peanut butter….and chocolate….AND caramel! I have to say, AMAZING! Explosion of caramel deliciousness! I took them into work because I know I will by myself, eat the whole thing! Everyone loved them! Props for the intern, and props to you!

  35. These look sinful! I was wondering if I omitted the oats would it make a difference in the bar? I’m not a fan of rolled oats…thanks!

  36. My kids have something against peanut butter. Any ideas how to keep it out of the cookie dough part?( I would obviously leave out the Reese’s chips.)
    These look fabulous!

    • My daughter has a peanut allergy so I’m wondering the same thing. Does something need to be subbed in in place of the peanut butter to help with consistency? Thank you!

  37. Do these freeze well or no? And can they be pre-cut into squares without all of the caramel leaking out? Thank you!!

  38. I just made these yesterday with my three year old and they are AMAZING!!! My other kids thought I was the best mom ever when they got home from school and saw what I had made for after school snack. Thanks!

  39. All of my favorite things in one cookie! Pinning! Thanks for linking up at Best of the Weekend!

    I pinned these and always drooled over them when I looked at my Yum Scrum Board. Tonight I made them and we were all moaning bc they were sooooo good! Thanks for an easy recipe that had me looking like a rock star!!

  43. These dessert bars are probably my most favourite thing I have made yet! They are so delicious and not that hard to make. Thank you very much for this recipe. My whole family loved them!
    Meagan recently posted..Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee Cookie Bars

  44. I made these a few months ago and they were sooo good! I want to make them again but last time I coulnd’t taste the toffee, so I am thinking about omitting it this time. Should I use extra of the PB chips to balance it out? Ir something else? Thanks!

  45. Gwendolyn says:

    Hi there. These look amazing and I’m curious if they slice up and hold together as well as the pictures. I would like to share these at a potluck at work next week, but I can just picture all the caramel oozing out of the bars if I cut them up and serve them on a tray. Thoughts?

  46. What if I don’t want the oatmeal in them, how would the recipe change?
    I want to make them today! :)

  47. O M G i can`t wait to make these bars!!! They have everything that i simply adore. THANK YOU! you have just made love to all of my seances.

  48. Just made these! I think they are one of the best things I have ever made. I had to share them with the neighbors so I wouldn’t eat them all. Thank you for the recipe.

  49. I baked a batch of these cookie bars earlier this autumn but wound up freezing half the batch and rationing myself to 3 bars a week due to my concerns about the peanut butter and the un-needed extra calories. So, question one – how many calories in one serving? Two, how many could be saved if Splenda replaces the brown sugar? Three, any other effects from making that change? Four, what’s the secret to separating the baked bars from the parchment paper without waste?

  50. Are you serious with these?! They look amazing! Definitely need to make these ASAP!

  51. These look so yummy!

    Do you have any suggestions for a substitution for the sweetened condensed milk?


  52. Eileen Madson says:

    Getting ready to make these. Have one comment … THANK YOU for not putting the calorie count!!!!!

  53. Kendra Mason says:

    I made these and added some walnuts for some crunch and saltiness to the bar also. AMAZING! Thank you for creating such a wonderful recipe!

  54. The caramel sauce this recipe made was so nice and smooth! I’ll have to keep this recipe around for the next time I need caramel for something. Thanks!

  55. These. Are. AMAZING!! I’m literally eating and drooling as I type this! To be honest, the original carmelita recipe doesn’t do all that much for me but your variation…WOW!! I’ll be making these again for sure!! Thank you so much for sharing! :)
