Both Michelle and I tried these this past weekend. Isn’t that a fun coincidence? Mine don’t look quite like the original – found here – but they turned out to be quite delicious! and very rich!!

Trillionaire Bars

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour

Caramel sauce

1/4  cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup flour
Dash of salt
1/4 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup oats

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons heavy cream

Combine the first seven ingredients and pour into a foil-lined 8×8″ baking pan. Bake for 18 minutes at 350°. This is the brownie layer, so if you wanted to use your own favorite brownie recipe you could.

Top with a layer of caramel sauce. The original recipe called for melting caramels with some cream, but I had some caramel dipping sauce in the refrigerator that I wanted to use up and it worked perfectly. Put the pan in the refrigerator until the caramel layer sets up.

Combine the next nine ingredients to make some egg-less cookie dough batter and spread over the caramel. This layer was out of proportion for my tastes. I think half the amount would have been fine.

Melt the chocolate chips and cream together and pour over the cookie dough layer. Then chill until hardened.

Remove from the foil and cut into bars to serve. I found it easiest to do this by making four long slices, then turning them on their sides to cut into individual pieces. The knife had a tendency to squish all the cookie dough batter out if you weren’t careful!
