  • Summary

    When a good ol' American candy bar veers French, it becomes a decadent dessert. Buttery pat-in-pan shortbread takes the place of mass-produced cookies and gets smothered with silken chocolate and from-scratch caramel, rich with fresh cream.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
    • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 1 3/4 cups sugar
    • 1 pound milk, semisweet, and/or bittersweet chocolate (preferably 40–60% cacao), chopped
    • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon coconut or other neutral vegetable oil
    • A candy thermometer
