These Gooey Caramel Bars Will Be Your New No-Bake Favorite

Salted Caramel Reese’s™ Bars
The word “decadent” comes to mind. MORE+ LESS-

We pretty much outdid ourselves with this newest no-bake bar. Just look at those layers of light, crispy cereal (held together with plenty of salted caramel, because WHY NOT), that creamy peanut butter frosting and the healthy sprinkling of Reese’s Pieces:

Honestly, if you tried to make these crunchy, gooey deep-dish bars any more indulgent, you might have to unhinge your jaw to eat them.

The recipe calls for 5 cups each of Reese’s Puffs and Kix cereals, but a mix of Reese’s and Cocoa Puffs, or even 10 cups of Reese’s Puffs, would totally work, too. Then you melt down two whole bags of buttery caramel candies with some water, salt and even more butter to coat the cereal and form the layers of your bars.

Melt caramels, water, salt and butter on the stove top
Spread the cereal mixture in a parchment paper-lined baking pan.

That all gets topped with a creamy-yet-fluffy peanut butter and vanilla icing and the aforementioned Reese’s Pieces.


Just look at those pockets of caramel…

(Hmm. On second thought, unhinging your jaw might be totally worth it in this case.)

We’ve got more easy bar recipes where that came from.
