Trillionaire Bars

Oh my word do I have a treat for you. Caution: do not eat if you can’t handle incredibly RICH and decadent desserts! Let’s talk details though, shall we? These bad boys start off with a rich, dense brownie layer. When I saw Bake Or Break‘s similar bars with a shortbread base, it hit me. Those would be so good with a brownie base. So I did it. I like my brownies soft, thick and very very fudgey, something you can really sink your teeth into (see last photo) and then melts into chocolaty goodness in your mouth. That is a truly delicious brownie. And that’s exactly what we have as a foundation for these Trillionaire Bars. A perfect brownie base. Then top that brownie base with a layer of soft, chewy caramel. Oh yeah, now we’re talking. But it gets better. Better?? How can it possibly get better??? Well let me tell you. Trillionaire Bars - Creme de la Crumb After that dense fudgey chocolate brownie layer, and the soft and chewy caramel layer (I know you think you’re in heaven already but just you wait) then we’re gonna top that with….cookie dough. Oh baby. Give me a the leftover bowl and beaters from a batch of chocolate chip cookies and I’m one happy gal. This cookie dough is rich and tastes just like it would if you were making your favorite chocolate chip cookies, but without the worry of the raw eggs. So abandon all inhibitions here and just go hog wild on this cookie dough. And if that isn’t enough, you top that cookie dough with a layer of smooth chocolate. I’m in love. Trillionaire Bars - Creme de la Crumb Let’s recap. Fudgey chocolate brownie + soft and chewy caramel + eggless cookie dough + chocolate. What’s not to love here? Not one dang thing I tell ya. These are crazy good and really rich so just be warned right now, you will not have a single one left in your house by the day’s end. Probably should plan on giving some away. Preferably before you try one. Otherwise you will most likely keep them all to yourself. Just take my word for it, I would know. Seriously. Make these. Now.

Directions

Instructions 1.Preheat oven to 325, line an 8×8 inch square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. 2.Prepare the brownie batter. Cream together butter and sugar in a large bowl. Mix in cocoa powder and salt. Add vanilla and eggs and mix until smooth. Mix in flour until incorporated. Spread brownie batter in prepared pan. Bake 15-20 minutes. 3.In a small sauce pan combine caramels and heavy cream and heat over medium high heat, stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and pour caramel mixture over brownie layer. Put the pan in the fridge to chill until cookie dough layer is ready. 4.Prepare cookie dough layer. Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla and heavy cream. Add flour and salt and mix until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips and oats. Test the caramel layer by gently pushing a finger across the caramel. When you can do this and the caramel doesn’t much very much, it’s ready. Spread the cookie dough evenly over the caramel layer. 5.Prepare chocolate glaze. In a microwave safe bowl combine chocolate chips and heavy cream. Microwave on medium for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds until chocolate is melted and smooth. Spread chocolate over cookie dough layer. Store in airtight container until ready to serve. Cut into bars and serve!
