    These are rich short breads with a caramel and chocolate layer over the top. They are great for kids lunches and get-to-gethers

      These are great! Kids gobbled them up instantly! Making the caramel is the only part that can be tricky - don't use the microwave to speed things up and don't use the non-fat kind of sweetened condensed milk. Thanks!

      These are really good! I lined my pan with parchment paper and let it hang over the sides so I could lift it out easily; glad I did because the caramel was sticky! The crust never really formed into a dough, but I was able to press it into the pan and it stayed together. DH said he could not really taste the caramel around the crust and chocolate flavors, but it gave it a nice gooey bite. Next time I will make it without the chocolate (I prefer caramel over chocolate). Made for Photo Tag.
