The Perfect Bite: Caramel Shortbread Squares

Let’s just say this post has been a long time coming; this is definitely a favorite in my immense arsenal of dessert recipes. If there’s one thing to make when you want to impress, perhaps before asking for a big favor, it’s these irresistible bites of thick and gooey caramel sandwiched between buttery, crumbly shortbread and velvety chocolate. I like to use dark chocolate to help balance out the sweetness of the caramel, and if you’re feelin’ fancy, a sprinkle of flaky sea salt on top won’t hurt one bit.

It’s Cookie Time!!

Why sure, the first week of January is the perfect time for cookies, right? You certainly want more cookies after gorging yourself on sweets during the holidays, right? …..Right?

Okay, I’ll be honest, I spent about a week straight in the kitchen during Christmastime and while I took photos, didn’t quite have the time to blog. So feel free to save the recipe for these peppermint bark cookies for next holiday season, or whip them up anytime this year– who says that chocolate and peppermint (layered on shortbread and drizzled with white chocolate!) is only for the holidays? Not me.
