Shortbread Base

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

60 second Caramel Layer

  • 1 1/2 cups caramel chews
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Chocolate Ganache

  • 2 cups dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp sea salt flakes


Shortbread Base

  • Preheat your oven to 150°C / 300°F. Spray a 33cm x 22cm (13” x 9”) baking tin with oil spray and line the bottom and sides with baking paper.
  • Add the butter, and sugar to a large mixing bowl and use an electric hand mixer to beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and vanilla extract. Use a spatula to mix until a dough forms.
  • Add to the prepared baking tin and use a spoon to press into the bottom of the tin. Get it as even as you can. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool once baked.

60 second Caramel Layer

  • Take the caramel chews out of the wrappers and add toa large saucepan along with the cream. Stir on low heat until the ingredients are melted, and the mixture begins to bubble. Once it bubbles, take off the heat and add to the cooled biscuit layer. Place back in the fridge to cooluntil set.

Chocolate Ganache

  • Add the chocolate and heavy cream to a heat proof bowland microwave for 30 seconds at a time, mixing each time until smooth. Add to the cooled caramel layer and spread evenly. Sprinkle with sea salt and allow to cool in the fridge for 1 hour. Once cooled, run a large knife under hot water and carefully wipe dry. Cut the slice into 4 large bars long ways, then cut each large bar into 6 smaller bars. Wiping the knife after each cut is a tedious and long way to do this but you get super clean Instagram worthy clean bars.


Bars can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
