For this weeks TWD bake Whitney of What’s left on the table? chose Caramel Crunch Bars, page 112-113 of Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
Dorie calls for a chocolate coffee shortbread base topped by chopped chocolate melted on top then because for Dorie there is no problem in guilding the lily you top it off with Heath (or in my case Daim) Bar chips.
Heath Bars are something I remember from childhood in the States. Daim bars are the European equivalent. There really isn’t an Australian candy equivilent. My Daim bars came from Ikea. My closest Ikea is about 3000km away. My mother in law is always mildly amused with how much I jam in my bags when I visit Sydney.
I am embarassed by how many of these I felt compelled to eat. Given my Daim bars were covered in chocolate I think for future reference I would skip the chocolate layer. Now go and check out the TWD blogroll and follow the trail of cookie crumbs.
