step-by-step
instructions
Make the shortbread
1 Make the shortbread

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 375°F. Line 6 rounds of a cupcake tin with liners (or line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper). Place half the butter in a medium bowl. Working in 30-second increments, microwave on high until melted. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and flour; stir to combine. Evenly divide the dough among the cupcake liners (or place in the baking dish); gently press into an even layer. Bake 10 to 12 minutes (cupcake tin) or 8 to 10 minutes (baking dish), or until lightly browned around the edges. Transfer to a cooling rack and let stand about 30 minutes, or until completely cool (for quicker results, transfer to the refrigerator).

In a small pot, combine the caramel shards, 4 tablespoons of the cream, and a pinch of salt. Cook on medium, stirring constantly, 5 to 7 minutes, or until slightly thickened and the caramel is melted. Turn off the heat. Stir in half the remaining butter (you will have extra) until melted and combined. Evenly divide the caramel among the cooled shortbread; spread into an even layer. Freeze about 10 minutes, or until chilled and set.  Rinse and wipe out the pot.

In the same pot, heat the remaining cream on medium-high until simmering. Once simmering, cook 1 minute. Turn off the heat; add the chocolate chips and a pinch of salt. Let sit, without stirring, 1 minute, or until the chocolate begins to melt. Slowly whisk until thoroughly combined. Evenly divide the chocolate among the set caramel layers; spread into an even layer (top with a pinch of flaky sea salt, if desired). Freeze about 20 minutes, or until chilled and set. Enjoy!
