Chocolate & Caramel Millionaire Shortbread | Hall Nesting

I kept seeing everyone’s break end yesterday but mine ended a week ago, so I got to reminisce about mine yesterday when I got to tell yall about our trip to Chicago. Since we were down south for almost two weeks we didn’t have any Wednesday night dinners but it now has become a regular thing for me to bake something. So this is what I baked for the guys recently and they loved it!

3 layers of Chocolate & Caramel * Shortbread make these Millionaire Shortbread! They taste just like Twix Candy Bars! | Hall Nesting

Millionaire Shortbread aka Twix Bars
 
Ingredients
Shortbread:
  • 1 stick butter, cut into small pieces, a little extra for the pan
  • 1 cup flour, plus a little extra for the pan
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Carmel Layer:
  • 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Chocolate Topping:
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place aluminum foil in one 8x8 inch square nonstick pan. Allow it to fold over sides - this will help you get the bars out easily.
  3. Butter the foil and then sprinkle with flour to coat it. Tap off excess.
  4. Place the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a food processor and pulse once. Add butter and pulse until mixture is coarse and looks like peas.
  5. Press the shortbread mixture into the pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  6. In a small saucepan combine the condensed milk and 1 Tbsp. of butter over medium low heat. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil, stirring continuously. Stir until mixture becomes thick and amber in color, about 15 minutes. Stir in vanilla.
  7. While caramel is cooking, in a glass bowl add the chocolate chips and set over a saucepan of simmering water. Add butter and allow to all melt completely.
  8. When caramel is done pour over the cooled shortbread and spread evenly using spatula. Cool to room temperature.*
  9. When the chocolate is fully melted, pour over the cooled caramel layer. If it is uneven use a spatula to spread the chocolate layer.
  10. Let it sit for 10 minutes then place in the refrigerator to cool completely. Then cut into pieces and enjoy!
Notes
*If you don't let the caramel layer harden enough it is hard to spread the chocolate.
