Product Description

Caramel Chocolate Shortbread Dessert Bar by Paula Deen Baked Goods is described as “A buttery shortbread covered in rich caramel and topped with decadent chocolate.” If you look at the shortbread sideways on, you will see three distinct layers. At the layer is a creamy, buttery layer, which is followed by a thick layer of caramel in the middle and then topped off with a thin layer of chocolate. I also noticed that the Caramel Chocolate Shortbread Dessert Bar by Paula Deen Baked Goods had a distinct chocolate and caramel smell.

Although I am not particularly keen on Paula Deen’s style of cooking, I do sometimes find myself craving her desserts, which always look rich, tasty and a lot of fun to prepare and enjoy with family and friends.

Taste Test

Caramel Chocolate Shortbread Dessert Bar by Paula Deen Baked Goods was very rich and sweet, which is what I expected. Just a few bites should be enough to help satisfy your sweet tooth. I enjoyed the taste, but would not eat this on a regular basis.

Recommendation

Caramel Chocolate Shortbread Dessert Bar by Paula Deen Baked Goods was well priced and provides 3 servings in each container. It also tasted rich and delicious. However, this dessert is not for the faint of heart or those who are on a strict diet. I would recommend this product in even smaller serving sizes, than the recommended serving, and only as an occasional treat.
