Reminiscent of one of my favorite candies, Twix Bars, these brownies have four layers of sugary deliciousness. Starting with one of my favorite brownie recipes, followed by a layer of shortbread truffle, then homemade caramel, finished with a buttery chocolate shell.
Makes: 9x13” pan Total time: 3 hours
Use my Brownie recipe here
2 packages Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread Fingers
6 oz softened cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup sugar
1 stick of butter
1 cup light corn syrup
1 12 oz can of evaporated milk
2 cups chocolate chips (I used a mix of milk and semi-sweet)
3 tablespoons butter
Step 1: Prepare the brownies according to the recipe.
Step 2: While the brownies are baking, make the caramel layer. In a medium pot over medium heat, bring the butter, sugar and corn syrup to slight boil.
Step 3: Once boiling, slowly add in the evaporated milk, taking 15 minutes until it’s completely mixed in, stirring consistently.
Step 4: Once evaporated milk is completely mixed in, remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Step 5: Make the shortbread layer by using a food processor to crush the shortbread cookies until they are finely ground. Add in the cream cheese and sugar and mix together until truffle-like dough forms.
Step 6: Once the brownies are fully cooled, press the shortbread layer on top evenly.
Step 7: Pour the mostly cooled caramel over the shortbread layer and place in the fridge for one hour.
Step 8: Once the caramel layer has set, make the chocolate shell topping. Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and butter until smooth. Pour evenly over the caramel layer and place back in the fridge for another hour.
Step 9: To cut easily cut these brownies, remove from the fridge and let sit for 5-10 minutes until the chocolate layer begins to soften just a bit. Cut the brownies while still in the pan to avoid the caramel oozing out. Once sliced, place back in the fridge to re-harden before removing and serving.
Step 10: These can be left in a container in the fridge for up to one week, just remove 10-15 minutes prior to serving so the chocolate shell has time to soften a bit so it can be easily bitten.
