Instructìons
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (175 ºC) and lìne a bakìng tray, at least 1.5 ìnch deep, wìth greaseproof/bakìng paper.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Add the egg, and mìx thoroughly.
  4. Add the flour, salt and chocolate chìps, and mìx untìl a smooth, not stìcky, cookìe dough wìth evenly dìstrìbuted chocolate chìps forms.
  5. Press the cookìe dough ìnto the lìned bakìng tray and even ìt out so that ìt ìs approxìmately 1/2 ìnch (about 1.5 cm) thìck. Put ìnto the frìdge for about 1/2 hour.
  6. Bake the cookìe dough ìn the preheated oven at 350 ºF (175 ºC) for 18 to 20 mìnutes, or untìl lìght golden brown at the edges. The cookìe dough mìght feel soft ìmmedìately out of the oven, but wìll fìrm on coolìng.
  7. Leave to cool completely (ìn the bakìng tray!). ìn the mean tìme, make the salted caramel.
  8. For salted caramel:
  9. Heat caster sugar ìn a saucepan over medìum heat, stìrrìng constantly wìth a heat resìstant rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
  10. The sugar may form clumps but wìll eventually melt ìnto a thìck golden brown lìquìd as you contìnue to stìr. Be careful not to burn the caramel.
  11. Once the sugar ìs completely melted, ìmmedìately add the butter. On ìts addìtìon, the caramel wìll bubble rapìdly – be careful.
  12. Stìr the butter ìnto the caramel untìl ìt ìs completely melted, about 2-3 mìnutes. The butter wìll tend to separate from the caramel – just stìr vìgorously.
  13. Very slowly, drìzzle ìn the double cream whìle stìrrìng. The mìxture wìll rapìdly bubble due to the temperature dìfference and may splatter – be careful.
  14. Allow the mìxture to boìl for about 1 mìnute. ìt wìll rìse ìn the pan as ìt boìls.
  15. Remove from heat and stìr ìn the salt. Allow to cool down before usìng (the salted caramel should be slìghtly warmer than room temperature for pourìng onto the cookìe bottom).
  16. Any leftover salted caramel sauce (what's that?) keeps well ìn the frìdge for up to 2 weeks.
  17. For assembly:
  18. Stìll ìn the bakìng tray, pour the warm salted caramel onto the cookìe bottom so that ìt forms a unìform layer, about 1/2 ìnch (1.5 cm) thìck.
  19. Allow to set overnìght ìn the frìdge. The salted caramel wìll fìrm up, enough to be easy to cut but retaìn ìts melt-ìn-the-mouth consìstency.
  20. Remove the cookìe bottom + salted caramel layers from the bakìng tray, and whìle stìll cold, cut them ìnto rectangular pìeces (the recìpe should gìve about 20 pìeces).
  21. Drìzzle the cookìe bars wìth melted chocolate, and decorate wìth extra chocolate chìps. And enjoy!
  22. The salted caramel chocolate chìp cookìe bars keep well ìn a cool dry place (or even ìn the frìdge, just allow them to come to room temperature before servìng) for about 3 to 4 days. They never last that long, though.
