As if buttery shortbread bars weren't delicious enough, Sarah from Broma Bakery gave them a drizzle of dark chocolate and caramel. These classic shortbread bars come together in minutes and keep for weeks, meaning you can whip up a batch on a whim and have sweet treats for weeks. Of course, you'll eat them all within two days because they're just that delicious. 

Ingredients

1 1/4 cup Vermont Creamery Unsalted Cultured Butter - 82% Butterfat

2 1/2 cups flour

2/3 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

caramel

chocolate

Directions

  • STEP 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 9 x 13 inch pan with parchment on all sides. Set aside.

  • STEP 2

    In a food processor combine the flour, sugar, salt, and Vermont Creamery Cultured Butter. Pulse until just combined and the mixture forms a dough ball.

  • STEP 3

    Press the dough into the prepared pan, using your hands to spread the dough into an even layer.

  • STEP 4

    Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until light golden brown. Take out of the oven and allow the bars to cool completely. 

  • STEP 5

    While the bars cool make the homemade caramel or melt down some soft caramels instead.

  • STEP 6

    Once the bars are cool use a spoon to drizzle the bars with caramel and chocolate. Use a large knife to cut into desired size rectangles. Enjoy!
