These bars have three delicious layers – a shortbread crust, a thick, creamy layer of caramel and a delicious layer of milk chocolate. No wonder these bars are called Millionaire’s Shortbread Bars. They’re rich and delicious that a little piece goes a long way!
These Millionaire’s Shortbread Bars are slightly different from the original, where you have a smooth layer of chocolate on top. I decided to just sprinkle the chocolate chips on top to give them some texture. I enjoyed them that way but I think my husband would prefer the smooth layer of chocolate on top. He’s not a texture kind of guy. He doesn’t even like stuff in his ice cream! Plain vanilla – that’s his favorite. Crazy, I say….crazy!
Shortbread is the base of these bars and it’s by far one of my favorite cookies. They always remind me of my grandma and Christmastime. They’re made with real butter and really, how can you go wrong with that!
Speaking of shortbread, I have an amazing shortbread recipe I’ll be sharing with you this month. Plus a giveaway to go along with it!
Some pretty exciting stuff is happening around here and I can’t wait to share it all with you, real soon! Now that Halloween is over I’m looking forward to baking for Christmas and getting into the festive spirit!
In the meantime, you should really try these Millionaire’s Shortbread Bars. They’re so easy to make and perfect for sharing!
