How to Make Caramel Squares


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. To a large bowl add 2/3 cup butter, white sugar and both flours, mixing evenly until it is crumbly.
  3. Press into a square 8" - 9" pan and bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
  4. In a large pot, add 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and salt; bring to a boil and keep boiling hard for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat and using a wooden spoon beat vigorously for 3 - 5 minutes, then pour over the baked crust and allow to cool completely. ( the caramel will firm up)
  6. Melt the chocolate and stir until nice and smooth, then pour over the caramel layer, spreading to evenly cover the squares.

    Chill and cut into small squares.
