Are you looking for a recipe that will indulge that sweet tooth and be the biggest hit at your next holiday party?

Well, then, this is the recipe for you!

These chocolate caramel squares are a delicious layer of shortbread, topped with some homemade stovetop caramel, and then finally topped with chocolate icing. These have long been a family favorite and they are even included in the special cookbook that my Mom made for my wedding present. Although I don’t make them often, they are such a special treat and are enjoyed by everyone!

It’s simple and delicious, and I think that it will become a tried and true family favorite of yours, too!
