Salted Butter Box image Land O Lakes® Butter

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 (11-ounce) bag caramels, unwrapped
  • 3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Recipe Directions

  • Melt butter in heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Continue cooking, watching closely, 5 minutes or until butter foams and turns deep golden brown. Immediately remove from heat; pour into large bowl. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 375°F. Line 13×9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Spray bottom of foil-lined pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.
  • Add brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla to cooled browned butter; mix well. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; stir just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread two-thirds of cookie dough into prepared pan. Reserve remaining dough.
  • Combine caramels and heavy whipping cream in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving in 30-second intervals until completely melted. Pour mixture over cookie dough in pan; spread to 1/4-inch from sides. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt. Drop pieces of reserved cookie dough over top of caramel. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt.
  • Bake 19-23 minutes or until golden brown around edges and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.
  • Lift bars from pan, using foil ends. Cut into squares.
