Caramel Gingerbread Bars

It's Friday and it's a snow day here in Jersey!  Unfortunately, when it snows John works super long hours.  I knew the girls would be missing him this morning, so I woke up early and made some yummy, healthy banana bread that the three of us could enjoy for breakfast!

You also know that when Friday comes, I try to share a new dessert recipe with you because, well, Fridays are just better with dessert!

Caramel Gingerbread Bars

These bars are fantastic - full of caramel, white chocolate, and gingerbread flavor!  They are also a Cake Mix other words...super super easy!  The flavor of these bars is perfect for a snowy, winter day!  

Here's What You Need to Make the Caramel Gingerbread Bars:
  • 1 box Gingerbread Cake Mix (if you cannot find this, substitute Spice Cake Mix with 1-2 tsp of ginger added)
  • 1 stick butter, softened or even slightly melted
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 bag caramel bits (you can find these right next to the chocolate chips in the baking aisle)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
The Gingerbread Cake Mix that I used! 

Now Let's Make the Caramel Gingerbread Bars:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish generously with non-stick spray (the caramel will make these stick more than other bars)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Gingerbread Cake Mix, butter, and eggs
  3. Fold in the caramel bits and white chocolate chips
  4. Press dough into greased pan
  5. Bake for 20 minutes
  6. Remove from oven and using the back of a greased spatula, press the bars down into the pan
  7. Bake additional five minutes
  8. Remove from oven and press down again if necessary to ensure a flat surface
  9. Cool completely in pan before cutting and storing the bars in an airtight container
