1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
2 cups caramel candies (I used caramel bits)
3 tablespoons half and half
2 (16 oz.) packages Chocolate CandiQuik Coating
Prep time 1 hour 30 mins
Cook time 40 mins
Total time 2 hours 10 mins
FOR THE CRUST: Preheat your oven to 300°F. Spray a 9″ x 13″ pan lightly with cooking spray (or line with parchment) and set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the flour. Mix until well combined.
Take the dough (it will be thick) and press evenly into the bottom of the pan.
Prick the crust all over with a fork. The holes allow the steam to escape and the crust will bake evenly with fewer bubbles.
Bake the crust until the edges are golden brown, about 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately run a knife around the edges to loosen the crust. Set aside to cool completely.
