    bevs kitchen's Note:

    Shortbread with a caramel layer topped with chocolate; heaven in a bar. A bit fiddly but well worth the effort. Do not be put off by the list of ingredients as you are making 3 items to become 1 deliciously fattening slice. I usually have a queue of family and workmates waiting for it.

      Kids give it 5, but when I make it again I will half the shortbread and double the chocolate topping. Call me fussy, but I like it to be 3 equal layers!
