Gooey Caramel Corn Bars

It will be hard to resist these gooey bars; the base of the crust is a favorite childhood snack!


  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) dry-roasted salted peanuts
  • 2 bags (4.25 oz each) caramel-coated popcorn and peanut mix (about 5 cups/1.25 L), divided
  • 1 bag (14 oz/340 g) caramel candies, unwrapped
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) milk
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided
  • 1 cup (250 mL) miniature marshmallows


  1. Chop peanuts using Food Chopper; set aside. Set aside 1 cup (250 mL) of the popcorn. Place remaining popcorn into large resealable plastic bag. Crush into coarse pieces using flat side of Meat Tenderizer. Place crushed popcorn into Stainless (6-qt./6-L) Mixing Bowl.

  2. Combine caramel candies, milk and butter in Small Batter Bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 1-3 minutes or until melted and hot, stirring every 30 seconds. Add 1 cup (250 mL) of the chocolate morsels; stir until melted. Set aside 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the caramel mixture in (1-cup/250-mL) Easy Read Measuring Cup. Add remaining caramel mixture to crushed popcorn; mix well using Mix ‘N Scraper®.

  3. Immediately distribute crust mixture over Medium Sheet Pan. Firmly press crust mixture into pan using Baker’s Roller®. Drizzle reserved caramel mixture over crust (see Cook’s Tip). Top with peanuts, marshmallows and reserved popcorn. Place in freezer 10 minutes or until set.

  4. Meanwhile, place remaining 1/4 cup (50 mL) chocolate morsels into (1-cup/250-mL) Prep Bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 30-60 seconds or until melted, stirring every 20 seconds. Spoon melted chocolate into resealable plastic bag; twist top of bag. Remove pan from freezer. Cut into 24 bars using Pizza Cutter. Trim corner of chocolate filled bag; drizzle chocolate over bars.
