    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bars

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups butter
    • 2 1/2 cups flour
    • 1 1/4 cups sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 12 ounces individually wrapped soft caramels, such as Kraft
    • 1/4 cup whole milk
    • 10 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut 1 cup of the butter into chunks. In the bowl of a food processor, combine 2°C of the flour, 1/2°C sugar, the cornstarch and the butter chunks. Whirl until dough comes together. Press evenly over the bottom of a buttered 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Bake in a 325° oven until top feels dry and is just beginning to brown, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, unwrap caramels and place them in a microwave-safe bowl with milk. Cook in microwave on full power for 1 minute. Stir mixture, then cook and stir at 30-second intervals until melted and smooth, about 3 minutes longer. Spread caramel mixture evenly over cooled crust and chill until firm, about 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (bottom of bowl should not touch water), stir chocolate and remaining 1/2°C butter often until melted and smooth. Remove bowl from over water and, with a whisk or a mixer on medium speed, beat in remaining 3/4°C sugar, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Stir in remaining 1/2°C flour, baking powder and salt until well blended.
    4. 4
      Pour chocolate mixture over caramel layer and use a knife or spatula to spread level, completely covering caramel.
    5. 5
      Bake in a 350° oven until a wooden skewer inserted into the chocolate layer comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely, then cut into 24 bars.

      These are really good and very easy (though a little time consuming with the steps). If I make them again, I think I might add some semi-sweet mini chips to the shortbread--I also may just make the brownie with the caramel swirled in as I thought the brownie and the caramel were the best parts of the bar. Thank you for a good recipe!

      These are unbelievable! They are fairly simple to make, too; they just take a little bit of time. It doesn't matter, because they're worth it! We just love them. Thanks for the fantastic treat!
