For those of you who are calorie conscious like me... I wanted to let you know that I reduced the brown sugar to one cup and only used 1/2 c. butter, which I replaced the the other 1/2 c. with applesauce. A little stickier to work with but was still very delicious!


I would give these 10 stars if I could. This is the third time making these in 3 weeks, and each time, they came out AWESOME!! I will only use this recipe.. by far, it beats others I've tried. I'm not sure what the reviewer below me means "too much butter". The chocolate chips measurement is the perfect amount, and do taste mostly caramel. I love that this is a soft bar, because other caramel bar recipes are too hard on the teeth. I'm hooked, I'll be baking these during the holidays!


I have been making these for over 30 years as well. Word to the wise: only use smuckers caramel topping!! It spreads better than any other topping available. Also, it is better if you melt the butter on top of the stove rather than in the microwave: microwaved butter makes the batter too goey to crumble or spread. Wonderful recipe!! My coworkers and family fight over the last piece!!
