Chocolate Chip Caramel Butter Bars

Kathleen took these to work for a potluck. They are very good and were easy to make.
Chocolate Chip Caramel Butter Bars

1 1/2 cups salted butter softened to room temp
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups chocolate chips
for the caramel sauce:
1 11 oz jar caramel sauce
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350f degrees.

Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Mix together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until fluffy.

Mix in the eggs and the vanilla extract. Then stir in the baking soda and cream of tartar.

Slowly mix in 4 cups all-purpose flour (a little at a time) until the mixture is combined.

Finally, stir in the chocolate chips. Batter will be very stiff so this will take a couple of minutes.

In a bowl, whisk together caramel sauce and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour until totally combined.

Press half of the cookie bar batter into the bottom of the prepared baking dish and halfway up the sides. 

Pour caramel sauce on top of batter.

Press remaining dough between your hands and lay evenly over the top of the caramel.

Bake for about 25-35 minutes until golden brown.

Cool completely before cutting.
