These Salted Chocolate and Caramel Shortbread Bars are, in a word, decadent. The richness of chocolate and caramel is highlighted very subtlety with a touch of sea salt.
I saw a photo of a dessert like this as part of a Bakeoff held by Bon Appetit; the photo was an inspiration but the recipe not so much!
First, it was in metric and called for all store elements to complete, so thought I would take it on to make my own version..the year of salted everything! I admit, I love the combination of caramel, chocolate and salt. I first tried it as a hot chocolate drink served by Starbucks a couple of years ago and became instantly hooked; I expected that same glee here and they do deliver!
I’ve got a group I meet with monthly that is going to benefit from this effort…hoping tomorrow it will be Ladies who Skip Lunch for this Dessert!
This is a very old post and it’s evident from looking at it today (10/12/17) that I need to redo it and get some better photos. Aw shucks, you mean I have to eat more of these? OKAY!!
The results were great; we finished off the entire pan of these Salted Chocolate and Caramel Shortbread Bars!
