Millionaire Bars are no bake with a rich layer of cookie dough, topped with a thick caramel and finished with chocolate.

Since we love caramel desserts, I try to mix different recipes on our blog. Among our favorite caramel desserts are Brown Butter Dulce de Leche Bars, Salted Caramel Apple Madelaines and Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake.

Ingredients

Cookie Dough Layer:

  • 3 sticks  unsalted butter,  (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups  white granulated sugar 
  • 1 1/2 cups  light brown sugar 
  • 4 tablespoons  cream 
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt 
  • 1 tablespoon  vanilla bean paste 
  • 2 cups  all-purpose flour 
  • 2 cups  chocolate chips 

Caramel Layer:

  • 2 cans (14oz each)  sweetened condensed milk 
  • 1 cup  dark brown sugar 
  • 12 tablespoons  unsalted butter 
  • 2 tablespoons  dark corn syrup 
  • 1 tablespoon  vanilla paste 
  • 1/2 teaspoon  pink Himalayan salt 

Chocolate Layer:

  • 12 ounces  semi-sweet chocolate  (chopped)
  • 6 tablespoons  heavy cream 
  •  Pink Himalayan sea salt 

Instructions

Cookie Dough Layer:

  1. Line a 9-inch rectangular pan with waxed paper or parchment paper; the later needs to be sprayed with non stick baking spray. Ensure that the paper overlaps all edges to facilitate removal from the pan.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitter with the wire whisk, combine butter, both sugars and salt until soft and creamy, beat for about 1 - 2 minutes.
  3. Mix in the cream and vanilla bean paste. Scrape the sides and the bottom of the bowl with a spatula.
  4. Add in the flour and mix in until combined.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop the cookie dough into the prepared pan into an even layer. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  7. Caramel Layer:
  8. Add all the ingredients to a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
  9. Whisk until the sugar dissolves, the butter melts and the mixture comes to a boil. Keep whisking constantly, until the caramel becomes thick, about 6 - 8 minutes. A candy thermometer should read 225 degrees F.
  10. Pour the caramel over the cookie dough layer and refrigerate until the caramel is set, about 1 hour.

Chocolate Layer:

  1. Add chocolate and cream to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 25 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is about 75% melted. Stir until the mixture is smooth and shiny.
  2. Spread the chocolate over the caramel layer and sprinkle with pink Himalayan sea salt.
  3. Refrigerate the bars for at least 1 hour before serving.
  4. Before serving, run a knife thru the sides of the bars, using the paper overhang, lift the bars out of the pan and transfer to a cutting board.
  5. Slice the bars with a sharp knife, wiping the knife with a paper towel between cuts.
  6. Slice into squares and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  7. Enjoy!
