I love to make them through the holidays, and add them to my Christmas treat plates. But I love them equally throughout the fall, when the weather starts to turn crisp. But let’s be honest…I make them and eat them all year round!

Turtle Cookie Bars

My kids are always happy when I have them ready for an after school snack, or tuck them in their lunch box for a special treat. I’ve also served them at parties, and taken them with me when I needed to bring something to a gathering or get together. They’re pretty much perfect any time!

The crumbly cookie bar is matched perfectly with the chocolate and caramel and literally melt in your mouth! They’re always a huge hit whenever I make them–and I have to hide a few if I want any at my house!

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt and soda. Add melted butter and mix well. Place 2/3 of this mixture into a 9×13 pan that's been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • While the crust is baking, microwave the caramel bits (or unwrapped caramels) and heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl. Start with 30 seconds, stir, then continue in 15 second intervals stirring in between, until the caramels are completely melted and cream is incorporated.
  • When the crust is done, sprinkle the bag of chocolate chips on top, followed by the nuts, then the melted caramel. Add the remaining crust mixture evenly on top. Bake for 15 more minutes.
  • Cool, then cut into squares.

    These are DELICIOUS!! I found the recipe on Pinterest last night, went to the store last night, and made these – you guessed it – last night! They turned out AH-MAZING. I ate two bars… The second one was my dear mother’s fault, because I cut her a piece without her permission, which she refused to eat (she was full from dinner…), so she left me no choice… What was I going to do, return it to the pan? HA! Anyway, thanks for a great recipe! Easy to follow and great taste/texture!

    1. YAY!!!! I’m so happy you loved them!!! They are SO amazing, and I really couldn’t wait to share them with everyone, so I’m happy you found me. :) Come back and say hello–I’d love to have you!!! xoxo

  2. I’ve been wanting to make these and having friends over for FHE was the perfect excuse! They were a huge hit and fun to make with my 3 year old helper =). Thanks!!
