Rolo Bars

Like promised I made my Rolo Bars for Easter and if I do say so myself, they came out pretty well!

Rolo Bars

Ingredients:

3 Cups finely chopped graham crackers

1/2 cup sugar

1 stick butter (melted)

1 package of caramel squares

1 bag chocolate chips

1 bag mini rolo’s

Directions:

1. Once the graham crackers are all chopped up, mix in the sugar and then the butter and mix until the graham crackers are all moist.

2. In a sprayed 13 x 9 pan, press the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of the pan,Β Then bake at 350 degrees for 10 mins and let completely cool (I saw a tip for making bars to put non stick aluminum foil in bottom so you could just pull it out and it would make it easier to cut…i did not do this but If I were you, I would, the caramel makes it difficult to cut in the pan!)

3. While the crust is cooling, Following the directions on the caramel bag, unwrap and melt the caramels on the stove (I believe it was just the caramels and 2 tbsp of water), once it is all melted, just pour it over the graham cracker crust and spread all over evenly.

4. Next melt the chocolate chips and then spread that over the caramel layer.

5. Take the mini Rolo’s and sprinkle them on top of the chocolate while it is still wet ( I chopped up the rolo’s so they were smaller pieces, but it wasn’t so easy so feel free to do them how you prefer πŸ™‚

6. Once the bars are dry and hardened, cut them up into bars and enjoy!

Oreo Almond Joy Bars

So I love Almond Joy’s and of course I am sure you know by now, Oreo’s! So why not combine them! So I came up with this awesome idea to make a Oreo Almond Joy Bar and man are they out of this world (my husband would beg to differ but he isn’t a big coconut fan!)

1/2 tsp salt

4 egg whites

1 tsp vanilla

Top Layer:

1 bag chocolate chips

1 Tbsp veg oil

1/2 cup sliced almonds

Directions:

  • Mix the melted butter with the crushed Oreo’s until it is all moist and put it in the bottom of a 13×9 cake pan and pat it firmly down so it forms a sort of crust
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine coconut, sugar, flour and salt.Add egg whites and vanilla and mix all ingredients together until well incorporated. Spread this mixture in the pan over the Oreo crust
  • Bake for 15-20 min at 350 degrees
  • While that is baking, melt the Chocolate chips in the microwave, then add the veg oil, then stir in the almonds.
  • When it comes out of the oven, spread the chocolate mixture over the coconut mixture and let sit and cool.
  • When it is completely cool and the chocolate has hardened, cut them up into small bite size pieces (one small bite is enough, it can be a mouth full, but don’t be afraid to have a couple πŸ™‚

Enjoy this delicious heaven!
