Chocolate Caramel Flapjacks



At every market I visited in Brittany there was always a stall selling the Breton speciality caramel au beurre salĂ©, a deliciously gooey buttery caramel. I ended up buying 5 large tubs of the stuff to take home with me, but I really wish now that I'd bought more - it's so good, especially on ice cream.

This recipe is an adaption of a millionaires shortbread, but uses a flapjack base rather than shortbread - and I actually prefer it. These bars are best kept in the fridge to keep the caramel firm. Enjoy.
