Dulce De Leche Bars
Total time: 
Serves: 32
  • BASE:
  • ¾ cup (1.5 sticks) butter, softened
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 can (300 mL) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 bag (200 g) toffee bits (such as Skor or Heath)
  • 1 bag (200 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup (2 oz) white chocolate, melted (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 9” square baking pan with parchment paper so that it overhangs ends for easy removal.
  2. For base, beat together butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. With mixer on low speed, mix in flour and graham crumbs. Press mixture into base of prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Filling: Pour sweetened condensed milk into microwaveable 8-cup (2L) measuring cup. Microwave on Medium (50%) power for 4 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir in toffee bits. Microwave on Medium-Low or Defrost (30%) power for 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes, or until golden brown and thickened. Pour over baked crust. Refrigerate or freeze for 30 minutes.
  4. Topping: Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips. Spread lightly over filling. Drizzle white chocolate over. Let set completely before cutting into small bars.
