Salted Caramel Chocolate Oreo Bars are a chocolate caramel dream, made with just 5 ingredients and they're no bake!Salted Caramel Chocolate Oreo Bars with just five ingredients (ok, ok, and salt!) and about 10 minutes on the stovetop are all that stand between you and this ridiculously indulgent amazing dessert that is no bake!

The Salted Caramel Chocolate Oreo Bars came about pretty honestly. I had friends coming over for a football game and we needed a dessert. I wanted something chocolatey because my friends LOVE chocolate but I am all about salted caramel these days. I was thinking of making a salted caramel no bake cheesecake tart but when I went to open my giant container of cream cheese I found mold in it! (I only bought it a week ago, boo!) So cheescake all of a sudden was not in the cards.

Enter Salted Caramel Chocolate Oreo Bars. I made the Oreo crust the same way I would for a cheesecake, added the Caramel Sauce from my Ice Cream Burger and covered it in bittersweet chocolate ganache with a sprinkle of Fleur de Sel salt. Sounds complicated right? Nope.

Using a food processor pulverize your Oreo cookies until they are crumbs. Into the top of the food processor pour 1 melted stick of butter (8 tablespoons). Press into the bottom of your springform pan or tart pan. I used a tart pan so it was easy to remove but in hindsight if I had spare time I would make it in a square pan, freeze, remove and cut into perfect squares while frozen.

Put the pan in the freezer while you make the caramel sauce. Add last stick of butter to a saucepan with the brown sugar. Melt them together and let them boil vigorously for a minute. Turn off the heat and add 1/4 cup of heavy cream and whisk it together. Pour the caramel onto the frozen pie crust and tilt the pan to cover the crust.

Now my favorite part! In a microwave safe bowl add your chocolate chips and a half a cup of whipping cream. Microwave for one minute.

Let sit for 3 minutes undisturbed then mix until smooth. PURE MAGIC! Pour over the caramel sauce and spread with a spatula. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Salted Caramel Chocolate Oreo Bars are a chocolate caramel dream, made with just 5 ingredients and they're no bake! Sprinkle the top of the Salted Caramel Chocolate Oreo Bars with flaked sea salt, I love Maldon. I used the round plate because it would be easy to remove but in a perfect world I would’ve had a square tart pan. It worked out well, I kept the edges for myself. 😉

    1. Sorry for the delay getting back to you this ended up in spam somehow. YES! I have them in my freezer as we speak. I eat them frozen and I let them thaw to serve 🙂

    1. It was pretty hard to not eat more and more of them! I was lucky enough to have a toddler watching my every move so I had to put them away quickly, haha.

  1. Holy Oreo deliciousness, Batman! I need that in my belly immediately. Thanks so much for sharing this. It looks phenomenal.

  2. Oh my goodness, YES! This sounds so divine. It has everything I love in it… I am sure it is rich and so full of flavor. YUMMY! And salted caramel on top? I am in LOVE

  3. I have such a sweet tooth and these are making my mouth water. I will have to try this recipe on the weekend. I am sure it will be a big hit.

  4. Hi,
    Thanks for this one, just about to make it.
    i think your print function needs some work, just wasted 15 sheets of paper and ink. just a recipe print rather than everything on the hole page might be better.
    Chris

    1. I’m so sorry Chris! I paid for the print recipe functionality and if it failed you I need to reach out to the creator of the plugin. My apologies about the 15 pages of ink wasted (especially if it printed all those photos too!)

  5. Can this recipe be made with jarred caramel sauce, such as
    Trader Joe’s salted caramel? If so, how much of the 10 ounce jar of prepared sauce would be needed?

    1. Probably not with a jarred sauce since the jarred sauces tend to be thinner. As soon as you took the bars out of the fridge the sauce would ooze out of the sides as soon as it came to room temperature.

  6. How do you get this idea ?!?! This is so so so sos so cool my brain that is real and I can grab is it from my device!you are so amazing I wanna follow you just for your yummy treats!
    Your the best cook thanks a lot!Make more desserts please!

  7. These are in my freezer right now waiting for dessert, but I tasted my way through each step of the recipe and could tell these will be amazing! Talk about Oreo fantasy, plus no milk or eggs (I happen to be out), super convenient. Maximum result for a milk-free egg-free dessert if you ask me.
