Music: "Sweet Berry Wine" by Blue Wednesday


  • Is there a basic microwave video as where I live we only have a kettle and microwave

  • I dunno why but that looks like diabetes to me.

  • who the hell is this claire everyone is talking about and whats her deal with tempered chocolate

  • Cooling tempered chocolate in the fridge or freezer will often ruin the tempering.

  • Babish licking on sweet condensed milk is tradution if you lick it more it gives more flavor to your cooking

  • i thought this is a carmel slice well thats what me family calls it

  • I don't know why but calling it millionaire shortbread and not millionaire shortcake is driving me mental

  • Hello can you please make curry of life from Naruto

  • When are the ingredients going to be posted?

  • In England we call these A Twix?

  • As soon as I figure out how to make WETTED FINGIES my ringtone, it’s over.

  • i love how your show is called basics with babish, but none of your stuff is basic.

  • Could you please add the ingredients to this?

  • Any substitute for corn syrup, I'm dying to make these but I'm a 100% sure that i would not be able to find corn syrup where I live

  • an episode on choux pastry would be pretty cool

  • So... many... steps lol

  • Thank you BwB. My daughter will love these for her birthday instead of cake. 2-28. She loves your shows by the way.

  • Did you just made Twix?

  • Fingies

  • “Something known as docking” also known as “something never to google”

  • I bet his neighbors love him cuz he's like bringing them so much food. Great!! Now I wanna be his neighbor.

  • Ingredients pls

  • How can I replace Glucose or Corn Syrup in Recipes? I love making American confectionery, but here in Eastern Europe stuff like this is no short of impossible to get.

  • Knife ran under hot water makes nice cuts on my caramel slice.. I mean.. whatever you call it 😆

  • Better shortbread is made with softened butter instead of melted. Sorry I dont make the rules.

    • This is my absolute favorite cookie though and I was glad your recipe and mine are exactly the same. :)

  • Pecan pie please

  • Hey Andrew My hubby wants to know why aluminum foil vs parchment? ...we are in the anti foil camp and only use it if absolutely unavoidable

  • Can i use white sugar instead of brown sugar? I live in india and its hard to find brown sugar here.

  • You had me at docking.

  • Does anyone make these recipes? The short bread is way too salty....

  • So glad to see someone else can’t resist the sweetened condensed milk.

  • this is twix but verry verry big?

  • 'wetted fingies'

  • Perfection!

  • Watching this while on a diet is just cruel

  • 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.

  • Bro this is just gourmet "martabak"

  • Dislike=jealous people

  • honestly, I think the streaky look is good.

  • 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 l0ve your voice

  • Most of the comments are about "tempered chocolate" and "wettened fingies"

  • Babish is wearing a fake rolex

  • Him: docking Me: okay im gonna have to stop you right there

  • Who the hell is claire?

  • «Bish please you already got your millions»

  • 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

  • Eat the rich....'s dessert.

  • 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.

  • .........caramel slice

  • Merry Daylight Savings... Day

  • 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!

  • With our hearts full, our eyes open, and our fingies a-whetted, we pressed onward toward an uncertain future, into the unknown.

  • i see a wasted oportunity to make ice cream sandwich

  • Its basically a fresh twix

  • Ive been watching since 200k subs but i forgot to subscribe to you until now WTF

  • Can you please fix that gap in the music in the opening

  • you should do an episode on mulukhiyah. It is the best soup I have ever tasted.

  • So, I actually made this. It was absolutely fantastic. Thank you for the recipe.
