What do you get when you decide to brown a little butter and get creative? The most insanely delicious little salted caramel brown butter chocolate chip bars ever, that’s what.
Why are good ol’ chocolate chip cookie bars so irresistible? I mean, chocolate chip cookies are tasty, but smash the same basic dough into a pan, underbake just a little, and wow.
It is safe to assume that bar cookies in some form have solved many a dessert dilemma for me over the years (and in some cases made me look way more put together in the potluck department than I really am).
I’m not trying to usurp the almighty chocolate chip cookie bar here, but sometimes even amazing things can be improved on. And in this case, a touch of brown butter and soft, chewy caramel does just that.
