Caramel Shortbread Squares

Caramel Shortbread Squares
I couldn’t let the holiday season go by without sharing this recipe.
It is a no-fail, crowd pleasing recipe that is great for any kind of occasion, cookie tray or potluck.

These squares have a shortbread bottom covered in a thick caramel topping and are then drizzled with chocolate.

We call them “Mmm Squares” because you can’t help but love each bite of them!

These will quickly become a go-to on your recipe list – give them a try!
