Make crust


Cream butter and both sugars. Add vanilla to the butter mixture, mix then add flour until soft dough forms.

Bake crust


Press one-third of dough into the bottom of  dish. Chill remaining dough. Bake crust for 20 min at 325° until pale golden brown.

Make caramel sauce


Combine caramels and cream in bowl. Heat on high for 1 minute and then stir until smooth. Add vanilla and combine.

Add caramel layer


Pour sauce over cooled crust. Sprinkle with sea salt. Use remaining chilled dough from the fridge and break it up into crumbles and drop them on top of the caramel layer.

Bake bars


Transfer the baking pan to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. The filling will start to bubble and the top will be lightly golden brown.

Cool, slice and enjoy


Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool and set completely. This makes 24 bars, but that all depends on how big or small you slice yours. Enjoy!
