Decorating Tips:

Once cooled and cut, drizzle extra caramel or even melted chocolate on top for a more decadent finish. A light pinch of sea salt can also enhance the caramel flavor, adding an elegant touch to these delicious squares.

For the base:
  • 280 grams of flour
  • 100 grams of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 200 grams of soft butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
For the caramel caramel:
  • 300 grams of sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream, warmed
  • 100 grams of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 300 grams of unsweetened cornflakes

Reformulated recipe:

  1. Prepare the base:
    • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit). Line a 30x30cm baking tray with baking paper.
    • In the bowl of a mixer, combine the flour, powdered sugar, baking powder and cubed butter. Mix until the mixture resembles crumbs. Add the heavy cream and mix until a dough forms.
    • Press the dough evenly into the prepared tray. Prick it with a fork and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown. Let it cool.
  2. Prepare the caramel caramel:
    • In a skillet, distribute the sugar evenly and heat until completely melted and golden, stirring occasionally.
    • Carefully pour the warmed heavy cream over the caramel, reduce the heat and simmer until thickened.
    • In a large bowl, combine the butter, salt and vanilla. Strain the hot caramel over these ingredients and stir until the caramel is smooth and the butter is melted.
    • Add the cornflakes to the caramel mixture, stirring until well coated.
  3. Assemble and refrigerate:
    • Spread the caramel-coated cornflakes on the cooled base, pressing firmly.
    • Freeze for about an hour to set. Then cut into small squares or bars.
    • Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
