  • Sift flour into a bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. Mix in brown sugar and shape dough into a ball.

  • Press dough into the prepared pan. Prick all over with a fork.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool.

  • Meanwhile, combine condensed milk, butter, and brown sugar in a nonstick saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until caramel comes to a boil. Reduce heat and cook until golden and pulling away from the sides of the pan, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Pour caramel over cooled crust and refrigerate until firm to the touch, about 1 hour.

  • Place chocolate in top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes.

  • Spread melted chocolate over cooled caramel. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens, about 15 minutes. Cut into bars.

Cook's Note:

Make sure you cool the mixtures in between putting them together so they don't blend together. When you cut into bars, you should see the base, middle, and topping clearly.

This is a really good and easy recipe! The shortbread is more crunchy, like a Twix, and the caramel made with sweetened condensed milk is very good. Wow! I'll make these again. Read More

I made these exactly as directed, but the shortbread crust is not correct, in my opinion. It's way too dry, and too thick compared to the caramel and chocolate layers. I think there is too much flour, and maybe it needs an egg yolk or something? I knew that something wasn't right after I pressed it into the pan, and tried to prick it with a fork. There was no pricking it with a fork, as it just flaked up from the flour. The caramel and chocolate layers were tasty, and the right thickness, in my opinion. I ended up cutting these into squares, and using a serrated knife to trim off some of the shortbread layer that was too dry and thick. After doing that, they were edible. I'd make these again, but find a different recipe for the shortbread layer. Sorry! Read More
