Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel Topped Shortbread

Susan Whetzel

There are few things more rewarding than being able to successfully prepare a chewy, buttery caramel. It’s a scary process for many, but, well, I don’t get scared too easily.

Let’s determine why NOT to be scared.

Butter. Sugar. A little Cream. What have you got wrapped up in it? 15 minutes and $2?

I have $2. I also have 15 minutes.

If it fails, it fails. I’ve spent $2 on less inspiring ventures. I bet you have, too.

ABOUT SUSAN: Thanks for asking. I’m Susan Whetzel. I am a wife to Jon, and a Mom to 4-year-old, Seven. We have a home in Virginia, in a small town in the mountains. We’ll never leave, I imagine. It’s where I was born…hard to see myself anywhere but here. I’ve been married for about 12 years now, and together since 1992. I know, I know. That makes me…old. Old-ish, anyway. I’m 36, in case you like to know those kinds of things. Somedays I feel older. Somedays, I wonder how I could possibly be in my thirties. I guess we’re all that way to an extent. It’s life.
