Salted Caramel Sweet Squares




SALTED CARAMEL SWEET SQUARES
Starbucks Copycat Recipe

Crust: 
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
cooking spray

Caramel:
2 (14 oz.) bags caramel pieces
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
2/3 cup pretzels, crushed

Fudge:
1 1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups marshmallows
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Crust: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8×8 pan with cooking spray. Beat the brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and salt with a mixer at medium speed until well-blended. Add the flour to the sugar mixture and mix until well-blended. Firmly press mixture into bottom of the pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Caramel: While crust is baking, combine milk and caramels in a medium saucepan. Place over low heat and cook until the candies are completely melted, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla and remove from heat. In a separate bowl, mix the pecan and crushed pretzels together. Remove the crust from the oven. Pour the caramel mixture (but reserve some for the topping) evenly over the hot crust. Sprinkle with the pretzel/pecan mixture. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Let cool completely.

Fudge: Start making the fudge only after the crust and caramel have completely cooled. Combine the sugar, evaporated milk and butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir constantly. Let it boil for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and then stir in the marshmallows and chocolate chips until melted and combined. Add vanilla and stir. Pour fudge mixture in top of cooled crust mixture. Warm the reserved caramel in the microwave. Add a pinch of salt to the caramel and drizzle over the fudge layer. Take a knife and gently run it through the salted caramel to make a marbled design.Chill, set, and cut into squares.

  1. Any advice for making the fudge work better in a humid environment?

  2. I made these. Tastes nothing like Starbucks. There is way to much of the fudge. I'd cut back on that by half at least. I'm thinking if I'd just use milk chocolate and caramel with no marshmallows it'd be better. JMO
