  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together 2/3 cup butter, white sugar, and flour until evenly crumbly. Press into a 9 inch square baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
  3. In a 2 quart saucepan, combine 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and sweetened condensed milk. Bring to a boil. Continue to boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon for about 3 minutes. Pour over baked crust (warm or cool). Cool until it begins to firm.
  4. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute, then stir and continue to heat and stir at 20 second intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour chocolate over the caramel layer and spread evenly to cover completely. Chill. Cut into 1 inch squares. These need to be small because they are so rich.

Fantastic! I made these last night and took the advice of several people and they were incredible. I greased and floured a 9x9 pan and they came out looking just like the picture. It is those of...

This are great!! I've made them many times. Cook the shortbread, let it cool, then place it in the freezer while you are making the caramel. Let the caramel cool in the fridge before putting t...

This recipe tastes incredibly good, but I found two problems with it. First of all, it is really easy to scorch the caramel filling - you have to stir both constantly and rapidly to avoid that ...

My co-workers and I loved these. Just like homemade twix bars. Helpful suggestions: They pop right out of the pan if you grease *and* flour the pan. The bottom crust is really easy to make i...
