Although the origin of these treats involved an actual breakup with an actual person, I believe that they are appropriate relief in any stressful or upsetting situation. So I encourage you to find something to "break up with", whether it be a stressful week, a bad grade, or an annoying situation. Then eat one of these bars. With their buttery shortbread bottom, creamy caramel center, and yummy chocolate top layer, they're sure to make things better immediately.
Here's to a better week!
