This irresistible trio of yummy shortbread, creamy caramel flavour and melted chocolate looks like a million bucks and tastes priceless.

Ingredients

1 ½ cups 375 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
½ cup 125 mL icing sugar
¾ cup 175 mL butter, softened
1 can 300 mL Eagle Brand® Dulce de Leche Caramel Flavoured Sauce
1 cup 250 mL semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled slightly

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line an 8” x 8” (2 l) baking pan with parchment paper, overlapping the sides for easy removal.
  2. Combine, in a medium bowl, flour and icing sugar. Blend in butter using a pastry blender or your fingers. Press mixture into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly golden.
  4. Bring caramel flavoured sauce to a boil over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Stir constantly, cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Spread thickened mixture on top of baked shortbread. Let sit 10 minutes before topping with slightly cooled melted chocolate.
  5. Pour melted chocolate evenly on top of caramel flavoured filling and spread to cover. Chill in refrigerator, 3 hours or until firm. Cut into bars.

Tips

  • Reserve 1 tbsp (15 ml) of thickened caramel flavoured sauce to drizzle on top of chocolate layer.
  • To melt chocolate, bring 1-2” (2.5 cm-5 cm) of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Place chocolate in heat proof bowl and place bowl over boiling water. Ensure bottom of bowl does not touch the water. Remove saucepan from heat. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes and stir.
