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 ¼ 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. 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. 😉

These were AMAZING!!! I double the recipe and used a 9×13. So delicious!! Will definitely be making them again soon.
These look absolutely AMAZING! Before I make them, would you please answer a couple of questions? Did you use salted or unsalted butter? After pouring the caramel onto the crust, do you put the pan back into the freezer (prior to pouring the chocolate on top of the caramel)? Thanks so much, Sabrina. I love your recipes because I know I can trust you . . . you have not failed me yet!
Hello all! I plan on making these tomorrow but was wondering if I could use semi sweet or milk chocolate chips instead? Thanks!
of course. Any chocolate would work. 🙂
Would it be possible to make these in cupcake form with liners?
Yes! This recipe is great in muffin liners.
They sound scrumptious! I can’t wait to try them. Thank you for the recipe!
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.
I hope you enjoy them!
How much of my own caramel sauce should I use?
I’d say about 2 cups would work. Enjoy!!
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!
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?
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.
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.
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!)
These look amazing! Pinned!!
Thanks for the pin!
Sabrina, this looks like the most decadent dessert I have seen in a while! I just want these bars all to myself! The area and caramel combo is killer! Pinning!
This right here should be illegal! Holy salted caramel, I shamelessly drool for you !
Hahaha you’re awesome!
Sign me up! These look REALLY good and so rich!
Pinned it! Like the fact I could make this on vacation as it only has five ingredients.
Thanks for the pin! 🙂
Oh my goodness, this looks divine! I can’t wait to try this.
Looks like ooey gooey goodness! Oh my.
Oh, I am drooling! I must make these ASAP!
Hope you love it!
Oh my goodness. This look fabulous. Heaven.
Salted Caramel is so good. I bet this tastes really decadent. This would be great paired with a holiday meal.
Yes! So decadent!
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.
Hope you love it!
This looks like an amazing dessert. I am definitely going to get the ingredients i need to make this for dessert tomorrow.
Great! I hope you love it!
Oh my gosh these look heavenly!! I think I would have to have the edge for myself as well especially on this dessert!
Thanks, Vera! I agree – the edge is where the highest concentration of Oreo is!
These look sinful they look so good! Oh my! I want to try them right now!
Oh. My. GAWD. My mouth just sprang a leak looking at this recipe. I MUST make these immediately!
Haha, love it!
What size flat baking pan do you recommend?
I have seen this picture 20 times today and every time I drool. I am SO making these for my family this weekend.
How exciting you’ve seen this posted places 🙂
Oh wow, this would satisfy my sweet tooth for sure. It would be really hard to stop eating these!
My husband practically inhaled it! It’s addicting for sure!
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
Thanks, Shauna! I enjoyed what little I was able to have of it before my husband devoured it!
I barely had to get past the salted caramel part to know these are going on the “must make” list. They look absolutely delicious!
You had me at caramel. This looks so yummy. All that chocolate. I think I may need a drool bib.
Thanks! We really enjoyed it!
0h my. These look SO good. This is not a want, this is a must. I must make these ASAP!
Haha, thanks! Let me know how they turn out for you!
Hi Sabrina! These look absolutely amazing! And it’s awesome that they’re no bake!
This looks pretty quick and easy, and oh so yummy. I’ll have to save this for a rainy day when I’m craving something sweet.
I assure you, my husband enjoyed it quite a a bit! Let me know how it turns out!
Holy Oreo deliciousness, Batman! I need that in my belly immediately. Thanks so much for sharing this. It looks phenomenal.
I don’t even know what to say about these bars! They look so intense it’s amazing!
I think I gained 10 pounds just looking at the picture! I want to make these, but then I might eat them all! YUM!
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.
Blow me away! I can’t wait to make these for church and be the hero of dinner! Do you think I can make them and freeze them and bring back to room temp when ready to serve?
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 🙂
OMG! That is just. I don’t know… Is there a word better than delicious? If there is, that’s the word.
I think delicious works! Haha.
These are putting the apple I’m eating for lunch to shame!
Well these certainly are delicious but there’s no reason to disparage fruit!
Wow, these look so yummy and decadent!
Thanks! You have to try it!
what the heck did you just do to me!? I have drool running down my chin right now! These look so sinful.. I must make these…
Haha, I love this.
that is one serious dessert! and it may be a little dangerous to have it be SO easy to make 🙂
This is an awesome combination. My mouth is watering just looking at your photos.
Only 5 ingredients and 10 minutes! I definitely do if I get this as an end result! What a yummy treat with minimal effort! I love this recipe!
