  • Why use unsalted butter and then add salt just after? .... or just say "butter." You know. Confusing. I didn't even know salted butter was a thing until I lived in Ireland for a while.

  • It's so strange that you call them cookies. Here anything like this- something with a biscuit (yes, it's biscuit 😂) base cut into bars like this or triangles- we just call it a slice.

  • Yoooo, I ALWAYS have a lil taste of the condensed milk when I'm using it, and other people tell me it's gross (not the licking, literally just the eating of condensed milk is somehow gross) and I do not understand what they mean. It is so delicious. Thank you for validating this.

  • Just tried making this, this morning, I added some butterscotch to the chocolate as a personal touch. But my shortbread turned out like powder. The consistency of the dough seem to match the video, but taking a bite left a very unpleasant texture in the mouth. Any suggestions?

  • Word of advice, if you live at a higher altitude your boiling point is lower, so you will want to lower your end caramel temperature to match or else it will be too stiff.

  • Can I suggest that you add a single word to the front of your band name. While tempered chocolate is a good name… I would suggest you add the word bad to the start, or good or dark or sweet.... or even bitter sweet

  • Firstly you cut them into squares. Secondly you have too much base. It should be half caramel and half shortbread with a thin layer of chocolate
