7 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup powdered sugar

3/4 cup + 1 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup milk chocolate chips

2 teaspoons Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk


First, preheat the oven to 350.

Line a 9x3x5” bread loaf pan with parchment paper in one direction (the 3” ends can be exposed).

Slice the softened butter into 7 pieces, and add it to a small bowl. Add the powdered sugar, four and salt, and work it together using a large fork, a pastry blender or two knives. When the mixture is evenly combined, it will look like sandy sugar cookie dough. Press it into the prepared loaf pan. Press it as flat as possible.

Bake for 25 minutes, until golden brown and very fragrant. Don’t be afraid of a little color around the edges. Let cool completely.

In a small saucepan, make the caramel: combine the butter, brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk, honey and salt. Bring this mixture to a boil while continually stirring. Let boil while stirring for a full 5 minutes.

Remove the mixture from heat, and stir for another few minutes—it will thicken. After about 3 minutes of stirring, add the vanilla and stir to blend.

Pour this mixture over the cookie crust and place the pan in the fridge to set. Let the caramel completely set before adding the chocolate top.

To melt the chocolate, combine it with the sweetened condensed milk in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power on 20 second intervals, stirring after each pulse. After about a minute, the mixture should almost be melted—remove it from the microwave before it melts completely and stir until smooth.

Pour the mixture over the chilled caramel layer, and spread until smooth. If you want the swirly top, hold back some chocolate and drizzle it on top after about 5 minutes. Then, place the whole pan back in the fridge and chill until set, about 2 hours.

Remove the bars from the pan using the parchment paper handles, and slice into 6 or 8 bars and serve.
