I have a great recipe for you today that is easy to make and will give you a great new option for your holiday cookie trays. Cinnamon Caramel Swirl Bars!
I was recently asked by McCormick to be a part of their Seconal Seven Flavors Holiday Program. So many of our favorite flavors of the holiday season center around seven different flavors… nutmeg, ginger, sage, vanilla, peppermint, poultry seasoning and cinnamon.
I get to represent cinnamon, something I use all of the time (hello, cinnamon rolls!).
I have a few great recipes to share with you in the coming days using cinnamon (and a few other of the Seasonal Seven Flavors). But for today I want to share this amazing Cinnamon Caramel Swirl Bars recipe. I usually stick to a lot of chocolate and peppermint at the holidays, which is what makes this bar really shine – it is such a wonderful flavor combination that can add some really nice variety to your dessert table or cookie tray.
And being a bar cookie, it’s quick and easy to make. You start with your base bar recipe, and bake half of the dough in your pan. While you are baking the base for your bars, you melt and prepare your caramel.
You pull your bars out, pour on your yummy caramel and then top with the remaining dough.
Back into your oven it goes.
And out comes these amazingly delicious caramel filled bars.
We loved these. As I said, they are a really delightful change from all of the cookies and bars with chocolate (not that I don’t love chocolate, but you know that!). Highly recommend this recipe. Can’t wait to share a few more recipes with you using the Seasonal Seven!
