Bale Bars

Bale Bars. Otherwise known as: No-Bake White Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars. That’s a lot going on for this simple looking bar. They’re incredibly sweet, and I have to admit I’m not sold. I feel like they would be a better combined with something else; maybe layered on top of brownies (like these), or crumbled on top of ice cream as one of my fellow BSMers suggested. I think the main reason for this is that I have a similar cookie in my archives which uses the same method of melting white chocolate and peanut butter together, and I like them a lot better.

I have just one other issue with these guys, as someone who is very protective of her (expensive) vanilla extract. A whole tablespoon PLUS a teaspoon of vanilla! I cringed a little as I was pouring it out.

You can find the recipe here!

It was a frightening amount of vanilla. I was convinced they weren’t going to set up!!

You did such a great job with your bars. They look wonderful. It was a lot of vanilla though.

I think the amount of vanilla could be cut way back. I almost used a bit of vanilla paste instead.

If I would have spread mine all the way to cover the bottom of the pan, they would have been more thin like yours too. It’s a weird amount… not quite enough for a 9×13, but putting them into a 9×9 would probably make them too thick.
