If you're looking for a candy bar-like recipe, these amazing shortbread cookie bars are an excellent choice. The bars are made in layers, with a cookie layer, a chewy caramel layer, and a chocolate layer.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes




  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup butter until crumbly. Press into a greased 8-inch square baking pan.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
  4. In a heavy saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Add the corn syrup and the sweetened condensed milk. Bring to a boil and cook for about 12 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture turns a nice medium caramel brown color. Do not let the mixture scorch.
  5. When it's very thick and just begins to stick to the bottom of the pan as you stir, it's time to remove from the heat; add the vanilla. Stir to blend and pour over the crust.
  6. Melt chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl over simmering water; spread over the caramel layer. Chill until set, then cut into squares.
