Ingredients

Shortbread:
1 C. unsalted butter
3/4 C. granulated sugar
2 C. all-purpose flour
1 C. cornstarch

Filling:
1/2 C. unsalted butter
1 Tbs. firmly packed light brown sugar
7 oz. sweetened condensed milk

Topping:
3-4 1.6 oz. premium chocolate candy bars or 1 to 2 5 oz. bars


Shortbread:


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together.


Add the flour and cornstarch to the mixture and knead for a few minutes by hand.


Spread the batter in the prepared pan and press down firmly with a spatula or the palm of your hand.


Bake for 1 hour, or until the shortbread is a golden brown.


Let the shortbread cool in the pan on a wire rack while you make the filling.


Filling:


In a medium saucepan, heat the butter, brown sugar and sweetened condensed milk over low heat until the butter is melted and the mixture is bubbling.


Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture turns golden brown in color.


Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Spread the filling over the cooled shortbread.


Topping:


Melt the chocolate bars in a microwave on high for 20 seconds.


Stir, and heat for additional 10-second increments until fully melted.


Spread the melted chocolate over the cooled filling.


Let the assembled shortbread cool in the pan for 20 minutes.


Cut into 2-inch bars.


Note: To add even more chocolate flair to this shortbread bar, add 1 C. semisweet mini morsels to the batter before baking.
