Who You Callin' Shortbread Squares
Yeah, that's right! These little badasses are...well...badass! Passed along from one person to another, to me and thus a new OliveBeats baby was born. A bit labor intensive, but fattening little gems to make your will power fall right off a cliff and your best jeans to fit just a little bit tighter. But screw it...it's the holidays and who is really working out anyways? Isn't that what January is for?
This is not by any means and "made from scratch" goodie...more like a semi-homemade recipe. OH and it's NO BAKE too! Manipulate any which way you want if you know what you're doing. But for those not creative enough in the kitchen...just follow these instructions and you'll be a winner. Fully. Totally.
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
3 Tblsp of salted butter
1 bag of milk chocolate chips (any brand you like)
1/2 cup of toffee chips
Shortbread cookies (Walkers or Lorna Doone)
Heat the milk and butter over med-low heat until it comes to a slow boil. Bring heat down and continuously stir until it becomes a light amber color. Spread the carmel over the cookies that are on a piece of parchment paper. Let cool in fridge for about 10 minutes.
Melt the chocolate and dip the cooled cookies. Sprinkle with toffee bits and again chill them in the fridge.
