Chubby Hubby Bars

Standard

Once again, I found this on Pinterest and had to try it. This recipe came from a blogger Cookies and Cups.  There must be an ice cream called Chubby Hubby and that was her inspiration for this bar.  It has salty pretzels, peanut butter cups, chocolate and caramel in it! Seriously, how can it not be good? Thank you Cookies and Cups for this wonderful bar 🙂

Ingredient Line Up.

Mix butter and sugars.

Add eggs and vanilla.

Add flour, salt and baking soda.

  • Roughly chop your peanut butter cups

and the pretzels. Add to the batter.

By hand, I mixed in the pretzels and peanut butter cups.

Spread into your pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.

Remove from oven. Let cool.

Melt caramels and water in the microwave, stirring after each 1 minute until melted.

Pour over cookie bar. Put in frig until caramel sets.

Melt the chocolate the same way. You may need to check it every 30 seconds. Then pour onto the set caramel.

Pop into the frig for approximately 30 minutes until chocolate is set. Then you are ready to dig into the bars.

I present to you....The Chubby Hubby Bars!

These were salty…chocolatey…caramelly (I don’t think that is word)…scrumptious. I think they would be absolutely awesome, warmed up a bit with a scoop of vanilla ice cream… ohhh yeahhh!

Mark’s only suggestion was that he thought the caramel was too thick. I wonder if I used caramel ice topping it would thinner and not so thick, but then it might be to thin…what do you think?

Inspirational Thought…My parents passed away in 2000 and 2002, I miss them dearly. Love and Cherish yours while they are here.
