Super good and rich bar that everyone seems to enjoy. Easy to make, except for unwrapping all those caramels. HA Have been making these literally for years. Was going to post this recipe, but saw it already here. (from one of those Pillsbury BakeOff booklets) It's a winner! Whoops....... just noticed that in my version you can use either evaporated milk OR half-and-half. No biggie, but wanted to share. I have used both, just depending on whatever I had on hand.
- 1 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar
- 1⁄2 cup margarine or 1⁄2 cup butter
- 14 ounces vanilla caramels
- 1⁄3 cup evaporated milk
- 1⁄4 cup margarine or 1⁄4 cup butter
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoons shortening
- 3⁄4 cup crispy rice cereal
