How to Make Caramel Macadamia Pumpkin Pie Bars

These pumpkin pie pie bars are the perfect dessert to make ahead of time. They’ll need to sit in the refrigerator overnight (or at least for a few hours) so the caramel topping can set. Which means you can get your Thanksgiving dessert ready well beforehand and then not worry about it until it’s time to serve!

The general process for making these pumpkin pie bars goes like this:

  1. Use pre-made pie crusts and form them into a rectangular shape in a jelly roll pan or baking sheet, and blind bake the crust.
  2. While that’s baking, make the pumpkin pie filling (similar to a regular pumpkin pie recipe).
  3. When the crust is ready, pour in the pumpkin filling and bake until the filling has set.
  4. Let the “pie” cool while you prepare the topping.
  5. Combine ingredients to make the caramel macadamia topping, then spread it onto the cooled pumpkin pie bars.
  6. Let the bars set in the fridge, and cool completely before cutting.

See the recipe card below for more detailed instructions. You can save any leftover bars in the refrigerator for up to a few days.

The only problem with these is that they’re a tad bit difficult to cut with all that caramel. But in what world is that a problem? I say the more caramel the better! Especially on top of these Caramel Macadamia Nut Pumpkin Pie Bars! You’ll be as hooked as me in no time. Happy Thanksgiving!
