Instructions
For Shortbread Base
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix shortbread ingredients together in a small bowl. Mix (using your fingers helps), until well-combined and there are no chunks of butter left.
  3. Grease a small dish (a 9″ x 5″ bread pan works well), or put down a layer of parchment paper, and pour shortbread mixture into pan. Pat down, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown and the center has hardened. Allow to come to room temperature before adding caramel layer.
For Caramel Layer
  1. To a heavy bottomed skillet or pot over medium heat, add the butter and cook until it begins to brown, 4-5 minutes. Be sure to stir often so it does not burn.
  2. Turn down heat to low and add in coconut milk, sweetener and vanilla extract. Cook for several more minutes on low, stirring occasionally. Once the mixture thickens to a syrup-like consistency, remove from heat. Pour on top of shortbread base and smooth out to evenly coat the top. Place in fridge while you prep the chocolate topping
For Chocolate Topping
  1. Break chocolate bar up into pieces, and add to a microwave-safe dish along with 3 tablespoons of coconut oil.
  2. Microwave in 20 second bursts, stirring after each burst to prevent burning. Once chocolate is fully melted, do not heat any longer or it will begin to burn.
  3. Top caramel sauce with chocolate layer and spread out with a butter knife.
  4. Place into fridge until hardened, approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Gently remove from dish and cut into 12 pieces before returning to the fridge. Store in fridge covered for 3-5 days, or longer in the freezer.
