Saturday Night: Wine, Dancing & Christmas Partying

Went out Saturday night to my friend Chantal's Christmas party. I brought wine, a housewarming gift, and these yummy Chocolate Caramel Cookie Bark squares (pure butter and sugar goodness and a recipe from another good friend). I had a lot of fun spending time with Chantal and her family and friends. We mingled, danced, drank, and ate. It was such a great way to reconnect! (Also, notice that I painted my nails! First time since...probably last Christmas!)

Chocolate Caramel Cookie Bark

1st Layer:
1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. water
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Beat butter, sugars, vanilla, and water until smooth. Add flour, baking soda, and salt until combined. Press dough into  17" x 11" baking pan and bake for 15 minutes.

2nd Layer:
1cup butter
1 cup brown sugar

Bring butter and sugar to a boil over medium high heat. Spread mixture over partially baked cookie dough. Bake an additional 8 minutes, or until caramel is bubbling.

3rd Layer:
2 packages (540 grams) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Remove baking pan from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Wait 5 minutes and spread melted chocolate over cookie mixture. Cool in fridge until set. Cut into squares. Enjoy!

6 days until Christmas, I can't believe it!
