a few years ago
a friend of a friend said to me
if you could come up with something
i would totally go for that
and i said
like a twix?
and she replied
exactly like a twix
and i gave her
and walked away
fast forward a few years...
i was digging through the freezer
and came across
shortbread cookie dough
i could take a twix
and make it just a wee bit better
a smattering of shaved sea salt
write 100 times on the chalkboard
"i love you more than chocolate"
1/2 recipe shortbread dough--rolled out, cut into batons and baked
1 recipe caramel--cooled and cut into batons equal to the cookies
tempered bittersweet (62% or higher) chocolate
flaked sea salt
let the cookie base cool, then place the caramel on top. allow it to sit for at least 5 minutes so the caramel will begin to stick to the cookie base. dip in tempered chocolate and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. sprinkle with sea salt, then place in the refrigerator to finish setting. remove from fridge after about 10 minutes or so. serve at room temperature.
