{twd} caramel crunch bars

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.

Yes, the first step is admitting the problem. But the thing is my problem is that I can never move beyond the first step. A nasty truth but there you have it!

I liked these, too!

Is there a 12 step program for chocoholics? Then I'll have to sign up immediately.

Hahah these bars really were fantastic! I ate them while watching the Oscars too, hoping that looking at all of the twiggy actresses would keep me from eating too many. It almost worked. Almost!
