  • 2/3 cup butter softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • 1 11 ounce bag of caramels
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup dry roasted plain peanuts


  • 12 ounces good quality milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x9 inch baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Cream together the butter, sugar, flour, salt, and vanilla until crumbled and fully incorporated.
  • Press the shortbread mixture into the bottom of the lined baking dish and cook for approximately 20 minutes, until slightly golden.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • Place the caramels and the cream in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in the peanuts and pour the mixture evenly over the shortbread. Use a spoon to distribute the caramel evenly.
  • Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate in increments of 30 seconds, stirring each time, until melted.
  • Pour the chocolate over the caramel and spread evenly.
  • Allow the chocolate to cool and harden completely before serving, about 2 hours. You can speed up the process by letting it cool in the fridge. Cut into squares and serve!
  • Enjoy!
