Vegan Caramel Pecan Bars Invade My Cookie Jar

March 30, 2010 by Keri

Okay, not really.  If I put these in the cookie jar, no one would ever get their hand out because they’re so gooey and caramely, but absolutely delicious just the same!  As you may have read, last Saturday I purchased Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and it’s wasn’t an easy decision which vegan cookies to make first.  I guess I could have just gone cookie-making crazy, but while that sounds fun and delicious, I really can’t afford to buy new jeans.  After pouring over the pages to decide which recipe I had all of the ingredients to make, I came to Caramel Pecan Bars (page 111).  They looked gooey, decadent, and I imaged them tasting something like pecan pie meets mom and pop shop caramel, so how could I resist?

Vegan Cookie Recipes

These bars were so much fun to make.  You can’t help but smile when you’re working with sticky, gooey ingredients that stick to everything, not to mention the scent of these baking is just unreal delicious.  I made the recipe exactly as written and after cooling for the designated 20 minutes, stuck them in the fridge to await their inescapable fate of my belly (oh, and to harden a bit also).  Wow, are these heavenly!  They’re exactly as I’d imagined, but somehow better.  They’re also really, really good salted for a salted caramel treat.  If you haven’t already made the Caramel Pecan Bars in your Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, you definitely should.  And hey, if you don’t like them I’d be glad to take them off your hands (but I highly doubt I’ll get any offers).  Now it comes to decisions, decisions.  After these are devoured, which VCIYCJ recipe should I try?!  If you have a favorite let me know!  I hope you’re having a great day!

    Recipes like this are the exact reason why I have not purchased this book. I seriously do not need tempting, decadent caramel bars around my house! They look amazing though. 🙂

  2. Gah! I need this book, and these bars.

    These look amazing and gooey and you’ve absolutely sold me on making these, maybe even for my family dinner. Thanks for sharing!!
