Caramel Cloud Bars

These tasty little treats are from Cooking Light and my husband LOVED them. If you're not a BIG sweet eater, you prefer cake to any other sweet, you'll LOVE these tasty little delights, and don't they just look perfect for the Holiday season? Can't you see them placed on a sparkley Snow Flake Plate? I'll have to work on getting on of those!
* Cooking spray
* 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
* 1 1/2 cups sugar
* 1/4 cup light margarine, melted
* 1/4 cup evaporated fat-free milk
* 4 large egg whites
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
* 2/3 cup premium white chocolate chips (such as Hershey's)
* 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
* 1/2 cup caramel sundae syrup (such as Hershey's) **I used Sugar Free**

Preheat oven to 350°.

Coat a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray; dust with 1 tablespoon flour.

Place the sugar, margarine, evaporated milk, and egg whites in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed for 1 minute. Lightly spoon 2 cups flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine 2 cups flour, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, and beat with a mixer at low speed just until blended. Stir in the chips and macadamia nuts.

Spoon the batter into prepared pan. Microwave the syrup at high 45 seconds or until warm, and stir. Drizzle the caramel syrup diagonally across batter. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool.

This makes 24 bars and each bar is 4pts roughly.
