I'm not sure why these bad boys are called 'billionaire bars' since I've never actually met a dessert worth as much as Oprah. Needless to say, these sinful treats are worth every bite.. and penny :)
Ingredients
  • 1 pkg refrigerated sugar cookie crust
  • 1 pkg Kraft caramel bits
  • 2 tsp heavy cream or milk
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp milk
  • 1 & ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 2 squares baking chocolate
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray. Unwrap the sugar cookie dough and press it evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  2. Bake the sugar cookie crust for approx. 15 minutes or until center appears set and top is lightly golden. Cool completely.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt together the caramel bits and the 2 tsp heavy cream over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has melted and is nice and smooth. Pour the mixture over the sugar cookie crust and spread to even out.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until creamy. Add the vanilla and milk, beat again. Lastly, gradually add the flour until a soft dough forms. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Spread the cookie dough mixture evenly on top of the caramel layer. Place in the fridge to set, about 2 hours. Before serving, melt the remaining baking chocolate and drizzle on top of the bars. Cut and eat!
