Tuesday Recipe: National Chocolate Caramel Day

March 19, 2014 is National Chocolate Caramel Day. What does that mean exactly? Well, in short, it means we can share this delightful treat with you. It involves three very special parts combined into one delicious, too good to be true treat: Chocolate Caramel Shortbread.
Chocolate Caramel Shortbread Ingredients:

For the shortbread:

For the caramel:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

For the chocolate topping:

  • 1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
Directions:

To make the shortbread:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat together the butter, sugar and flour until crumbly. Press into a 9×9 baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.

To make the caramel:
Add the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and condensed milk to a medium sauce pan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring often, and continue boiling for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir vigorously for 3 minutes. Pour caramel over the (warm or cool) shortbread.

For the topping:
Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and return to the oven for 1 minute. Spread the chocolate chips with an offset spatula or swirl with a knife for a marble effect. Cool completely and cut into small squares.
