Salted Chocolate-Caramel Bars

Salted Chocolate-Caramel Bars from Dorie's Cookies have a chocolate shortbread base with a salted chocolate caramel topping sprinkled with toasted chopped pecans.

My caramel had lumps, which I removed with a spoon.  After refrigerating the bars overnight I was disappointed to see that the caramel did not set.  Perhaps I should have reviewed how to make caramel before starting, used a heavier pan, swirled the pan less as the sugar mixture was cooking, let it get a little darker before I took it off the stove, warmed the cream before adding, who knows what went wrong.

Perhaps some time in the freezer will improve the texture.


  1. Sorry to hear that your caramel did not set up. They look great.

  2. i hope they set up for you! and i hope they taste great regardless!

  3. This was an awfully soft caramel, wasn't it? These squares were soooo delicious, though!
