1 ¼ c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter; room temp
½ c. butter
½ c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. corn syrup
½ c. sweetened condensed milk
Crumble crust ingredients together. Pack into 9x9 inch pan that has been sprayed, lined with foil and sprayed again. Bake on 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Combine caramel ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly as it burns easily. Remove from heat. Stir with spoon slowly until it shows signs of thickening. Pour over crust and let cool a little.
Melt approximately 1-2 c. chocolate chips with 1 tsp shortening over low heat or in the microwave. Pour over caramel layer and spread carefully. Chill. Cut into bars.
In the world of treats...my world of treats...there is nothing better than chocolate and caramel. Add a cookie crust and this girl is in HEAVEN!
This bad boys did not disappoint. They are relatively quick and easy to put together. The only thing that takes extra attention is cooking the caramel. It will scorch if you stop stirring it during the cooking process.
Next time I will make them with milk chocolate. Yes, there will definitely be a next time.
