  • Be honest. How many attempts for the tempered chocolate? I think Claire's record from Bon Appetit is 317 attempts. BTW try heating the knife slightly next time to cut.

  • Honestly I feel like I could never do 90% of the things cooking channels do. But between “wettened fingies,” licking the can lid, and not tempering chocolate correctly I feel like maybe I could make this one happen. Although it isn’t just this one video- you’re clearly talented but you don’t BS. If something’s not quite right you roll with it and tell us it isn’t and how to avoid it, you experiment with things and show us the results, and it’s funny without being hacky or untalented.

  • I made this and it's delicious, but you could have mentioned that you shouldn't stack these for starage. After one day there wasn't much caramel left between the other two layers :D

  • Babs, next time you need to flawlessly cut through a cake, or any sweet thing made of chocolate, fat and sugar, run or dip your knife in blisteringly hot water, wipe off the moisture and use that to cut into it. It will glide through, I promise.

  • Hey i'm gonna make this comment as i'm just now making this and I'm slightly worried I messed up after making the shortbread. In your instructions at 0:42 you don't mention but clearly show adding in the raw sugar but seemingly not in the doubled recipe. Not only that but on your site you have raw added into the shopping list but not any amount. is it ok that I didn't add the sugar? About to make the caramel and now i'm worried I ruined the shortbread somehow but looking through your video you never even mention it in the voice over (unless i missed it somewhere.)

  • 2:38. That’s not caramel, caramel needs only two ingredients sugar and cream; water too if you want to give yourself some breathing room. This shit looks damn tasty though!
