Sea Salt Caramel Bar

I rarely post two days in a row but since I had a long weekend (due to a nasty sprained ankle), it felt like I had so much time. I’m not the one to sit still at home, so the itch to create is real.  Jack told me he was going to cash in this “stay in” weekend so they stayed home with me (as if they have a choice). =D They have been taking care of my dog walkies duties so for that I rewarded them with their fave. This recipe is actually my recipe of Max’s Fried Chicken Caramel Bar with a lil twist. Adding Fleur de Sel (sea salt) works with the sweetness of these yummy things.

Hope you like it =D
