The Yogurtland Flavorologists are at it again taking our seasonal favorite, Caramel Almond Bar frozen yogurt, out of the cup and onto your plate.  This frozen yogurt recipe is worth cozying up to, is super simple and is sure to impress your guests! 

Below is a step-by-step photo guide to make Yogurtland’s Caramel Almond Bar with Shortbread Cookie Crust. For the full recipe, scroll to the bottom of the post.


Here’s everything you’ll need to get started:

1. Let’s start with the shortbread cookie crust: add your cookies to a food processor and pulse to achieve a finely ground consistency.

2. Next, pour the cookies crumbs into a small bowl. Add sugar and melted butter. Stir it up until combined.

3. Firmly press the pie crust mixture down into a small, lightly greased spring form pan.

4. Now here comes the real yum—the Caramel Almond Bar frozen yogurt filling! Using your spatula, fill the pan with the tastes of gooey caramel, toasty almonds, and rich chocolate with our Caramel Almond Bar yogurt.

5. Time to chill. Place your filled spring form pan in the freezer to chill. We recommend at least an hour to help create a picture perfect presentation.
6. Wait patiently… if you can!
7. Carefully, remove the Caramel Almond Bar from the pan and place on a plate.

8. Time to top this treat off with the finishing touches. Drizzle with chocolate shell sauce and salted caramel sauce. Sprinkle with sliced almond.

9. Now for the best part! Enjoy with your guests, family, and closest friends.
