Carmel Bars

My sister Jaime wanted me to post this yummy recipe.

Cream together:
1 cup softened butter
1/2 C plus 2 TBS Sugar
2 C Flour
Press into cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until light brown at 350 degrees.

Carmel layer:
1 C Butter
3/4 C Sugar
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
4 TBS Karo Syrup
Cook above ingredients on stove top until light brown - soft ball stage (240). Stir constantly or mixture will burn on the bottom of the pan.

Pour carmel over crust. Spread carefully. Sprinkle milk chocolate chips (about 1 Cup) over top of carmel. Let melt and then spread carefully over carmel. Let chocolate harden on the top before cutting. (I always stick mine outside or in the refrigerator to speed up the process.) Enjoy!
