Salted Caramel Chocolate Oatmeal Bars and Bake Sale Ideas

The sun is shining! I’ve been busy developing and photographing lots of exciting recipes for a new platform (more news to come) as well as writing and baking and making these (slightly addictive) Salted Caramel Chocolate Oatmeal Bars.

Recently, a recipe from one of my favourite blogs, Pinch of Yum, popped into my inbox and I knew instantly that I had to make it. The recipe was for Chocolate Caramel Oatmeal Bars. Since I had half a jar of Bonne Maman Confiture de Caramel left over, having made The ‘Big Daddy’ Salted Caramel Fudge Cake last weekend, I knew this would be the perfect recipe to make for a girls night in. I had actually been instructed to come with salad, but these were too good not to bring instead! Mine turned out a little more crumbly than on Pinch of Yum, as I had to convert measurements, plus I had an extra little pair of helping hands (which meant half the flour was all over the floor!) but they were equally tasty. Having made them once, I made them again to take to our summer fair, along with a big batch of cupcakes and as I type, I’m seriously craving them again…

      Yes so simple and really tastes great – not mass produced. Caramel is so hard to make, you can get the taste and texture so easily wrong. Enjoy the school fete! x

  4. What a stunning recipe, as always.
    But I must look out for the Bonne Maman Confiture de Caramel.
    That alone is bliss !
