millionaire shortbread bar recipeMillionaire Shortbread bar Recipe... sounds delicious, but with Sea Salt? Salt? on Caramel and Dark Chocolate? Sounds like something you’d see on one of those food shows where they are trying to pass off something icky as actual food (you can cook Brussels Sprouts any way you want to, they will still be Brussels Sprouts).

But, I have to tell you…. it’s an AMAZING combination. The Sea Salt makes the Caramel SING!!

Sadly, Millionaire Shortbread with Sea Salt covers all of my vices….. caramel, chocolate and salt, with the addition of a handy cookie delivery system.

My mouth is delighted… my tummy is delighted…. and the people who sell me larger Levis are delighted….

Seriously, this is sort of a special occasion cookie, you know, like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthdays and Thursdays (maybe Tuesdays too…). It is a little more labor intensive than your average Chocolate Chip Cookie… but I promise you…. it’s worth every morsel. .

I used Dove Chocolates for the Dark Chocolate Ganache layer… I tested with Chocolate Chips, and it was fine… I used Dove Chocolate, and it was AMAZING. If you don’t have Dove… find another good chocolate brand.

Don’t use Table Salt… you have to use Sea Salt. You can buy fancy Sea Salts from the gourmet stores… or you can get the sea salt grinder at your local grocery store.

Bake up a batch…invite some friends over to share… or give some away as a Holiday Food Gift From Your Kitchen.

(Or just pop the top button on your jeans… and enjoy the pan yourself.)

I’ve detailed the recipe with photos below…
