  • 1 packet cinnamon graham crackers
  • 10 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 13.4 oz. can Dulce de leche
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 24 mini candy bars


  • Unwrap the candy bars and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Set them aside.
  • Cover a 9x15 cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Lay graham crackers next to each other so that they fit snug and cover most of the cookie sheet.
  • Pour Dulce de leche into a microwave-safe dish and microwave for 30 seconds, stir the mixture, and microwave again for another 30 seconds.
  • Spread the caramel over the graham crackers using an offset spatula or small knife. Be sure to spread the caramel all the way to the edges.
  • Place chocolate chips into a microwave-safe dish, microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave again for another 30 seconds.
  • Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel and spread it all the way to the edges covering the caramel.
  • Sprinkle the cut-up candy bars on top of the chocolate.
  • Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  • To slice, lift the foil out of the cookie sheet, place it on a large cutting board, and slice it into pieces.


  • I recommend placing the candy bars in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before cutting them into pieces.
  • Substitute mini candy bars for 4 regular-sized bars
  • This recipe should be refrigerated until serving.
  • Make these 1-2 days in advance and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • This recipe is easy to customize. Some of my favorite variations are to use chopped salted nuts instead of chopped-up candy bars. Or omit the topping and top the chocolate layer with sea salt for a more sophisticated bar. Be creative and use any type of candy bars you like.
