This is the best caramel shortbread ever, so easy to make and my friends all adore 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!
easy to make and the family loved them
I'm sorry to give only three stars I truly am for the caramel sauce is ABSOLUTELY heavenly. However, the shortbread and the caramel do not complement each over at all so the shortbread seems very bland. This recipe was nice - but Costa cafe's are waaaay nicer but absolutely different. I also only did half the recipe and cut the squares alot smaller then suggested as this was the same recipe that I found in a book only doubled. My mum and dad who haven't tried Costa's to my knowledge loved them though and my mum normally doesn't like caramel. So my suggestion is make it if you haven't tried caramel shortbread and you'll love it, however to me it just wasn't the same.
a favourite of mine!! really loved it. to lower the calories though i used only 2oz butter on the middle layer, and only 1oz of sugar. to further reduce the calories you could halve the ingredients of the bottom layer. also, use no butter for the topping, as chocolate is enough! great recipe though!!!
