Chocolate Oat Dulce De Leche Bars

Everyone knows how much Hubby loves caramel. He also loves caramel’s first cousin, dulce de leche. I’ve made Homemade Dulce De Leche in the Crockpot, but sometimes life calls for shortcuts.

Hubby was feeling neglected since it had been all of 3 days since my last baking adventure. So I decided to make a treat that he would really enjoy. Seriously, best wife ever. As I was standing in the baking aisle in my grocery store, a small can caught my eye. I had never seen canned dulce de leche before and I was intrigued to try it.

These Chocolate Oat Dulce De Leche Bars are pretty freaking amazing. You’ve got chocolate and oats and chocolate chips and dulce de leche. They’re out of control.

Chocolate Oat Dulce De Leche Bars

Yield: 24 bars

Ingredients:

3/4 cups flour
1 cup oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp espresso powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 13.4-ounce can dulce de leche
2 Tbsp milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Heat oven to 350F.

Place flour, oats, brown sugar, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and mix well.

Place butter and unsweetened chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute or until butter and chocolate are melted, stirring after 30 seconds. Mix melted butter mixture into dry ingredients until crumb forms.

Reserve 1/2 cup of crumb mixture. Place remaining crumb mixture in a greased 8Γ—8-inch pan and press down evenly. Bake crust for 10 minutes.

Place dulce de leche and milk in a small bowl and mix well until smooth. Evenly spread dulce de leche over partially baked crust.

Top evenly with chocolate chips and remaining 1/2 cup chocolate crumb mixture. Bake an additional 12 to 15 minutes or until set.

Cool 1 hour at room temperature and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until filling is set. Cut into 16 bars and store in the refrigerator.

    so there’s no cocoa or chocolate in it whatsoever or is that a typo? wondering how it gets that rich chocolate color! πŸ™‚

      You’re right. Sorry about that – it’s a typo… I have updated the recipe. It calls for a heaping 1/2 cup of cocoa.

    I believe you have forgotten to add the chocolate part of this recipe.

    Thanks so much for this recipe! It’s awesome and tastes really good. I wrapped it inside of a dark chocolate shell and they made the most perfect chocolate truffles. Everyone loved them for Christmas! Thanks again.
