Salted Caramel Crumb Bars
One of my most loved desserts would have to be my raspberry crumb bars. They are buttery, rich and always a hit. They are often requested and expected when I am baking for parties and they never disappoint! These caramel crumb bars are a take on my raspberry bars as I have only changed up the filling. I have replaced the raspberry jam with homemade salted caramel! You could certainly use a jarred caramel butttttttt I really recommend going with the homemade. It definitely pushes them over the top, I promise! You can find my salted caramel recipe here!
What’s nice (and convenient) is you can make the caramel days in advance and have it on hand in the fridge!
Another version I have tried is with Cadbury Caramel Spread—-amazing!
