I found this recipe at www.yourhomebasedmom.com. I've become addicted to these bars and have been making them at least once a week. I did tweak the recipe just a little and use 1/2 c of the crumb mixture for the topping instead of 1/4 c. I think they look better that way. You can use homemade Dulce de Leche or store bought. Fortunately, the store I shop at carries it. You will usually find it next to the sweetened condensed milk in the baking aisle

How to Make Dulce de Leche Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl combine the flour, oats, sugar and salt.
  3. Use a pastry blender to cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Set aside 1/2 C of the mixture to use for the topping.
  4. Press remaining crumbs into the bottom of an ungreased 13x9 pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, heat the Dulce de Leche in the microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. You can also heat the sauce on the stove top until it is a good spreading consistency.
  6. Spread the Dulce de Leche over the top of the crust with a spatula. Spread gently, so that none of the crust comes up.
  7. Sprinkle with toffee bits and chocolate chips. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown
  9. Let bars cool and then cut. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
