Caramel Crunch Bars

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is caramel crunch bars and it was chosen by Whitney of What’s left on the table? They are a bar cookie with chocolate and coffee added to a shortbread dough. More chocolate (melted) and heath bits are added on top after the cookies are baked.


I used milk chocolate in place of the bittersweet, just because my family likes it better. I also had to use regular instant coffee because I couldn't find the espresso. I thought the cookies came out very tasty.



This was a really thick dough. Dorie says that the dough will percolate when it is done. I had never seen cookies percolate but that is pretty much exactly what the dough was doing when I took it out of the oven.


Melted Chocolate and Heath Bits.

Yummy!

They look fantastic! I'm glad Dorie said they would percolate, because I seriously would have thought something was wrong with my batter if she didn't! I've never seen that before either!

It was funny to see 'bubbling' cookie dough. Yours look so great!
