Perfect Holiday Dessert Bars

It’s safe to say the holiday season is here, right? Thanksgiving is in a couple days and before you know it Christmas will be here. What does this mean? Get togethers, family parties, time with friends. And what do these moments always have in common? Food! What will you be bringing to your events? Try these chocolate chip caramel oatmeal bars and you will be the absolute hit.


For me, it’s always easier to just bring a dessert to any kind of get together. I learned that I loved making treats when I had a Sunday school class that wouldn’t participate. To get them to talk I would make treats: slutty cheesecake barsscotcheroosseven layer bars, and much more.

I always pick a dessert because I know I won’t eat it (I never eat anything I make) and 98% of the time there won’t be any left to bring home. When in doubt, dessert it out.

Another great thing about these dessert bars is they are so simple to make. So simple in fact that your kids can’t mess anything up. I always get nervous when I have the kids help me, but not with these bars.


Making a cookie or bar is always a great option. If I know that I have to bring a utensil or put it on a separate dish/bowl then I am more likely not to have it.

If you make a cookie or bar though, it’s simple for people to grab them as they are walking by and they tend to eat more than they would if they had to serve it up. Does that make sense? I do it all time and I am always eating way more dessert than I should be.
