WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Caramel Mocha Crunch Bars
(156 calories | *8 WW SmartPoints)
I used my slow cooker to melt together the caramel mixture for these incredibly rich and delicious no-bake caramel mocha crunch bars, which are essentially a sophisticated variation of everybody’s favorite Rice Krispie Treats.
The Crock-Pot 2-Quart Slow Cooker is now my go-to way to melt caramel. I’m much less likely to scorch it.
And clean up is a lot easier too.

Caramel Mocha Crunch Bars Recipe Notes
I used white chocolate chips. But milk chocolate chips, or semisweet, would work well too.
