Remember the cake that almost sent me into a 12 step program for chocoholics? Well I think I just had a relapse. But these Caramel Crunch Bars were totally worth it. The base is a cinnamon and espresso flavored shortbread studded with milk chocolate, which gets topped with more milk chocolate and sprinkled with toffee pieces (Does it surprise you that I went for chocolate covered toffee pieces? No? Good we're really getting to know each other here).
Thankfully, I made these for an Oscar viewing party, so there was no need to throw the leftovers in the trash. Which is a good thing, because I don't think I could have brought myself to do it this time. In fact, I'm fairly sure I could have eaten the entire batch myself. Hey, the first step is admitting you have a problem, right?
This inspired choice comes from Whitney of What's Left on The Table. You can find the recipe on her blog.
