Millionaire Shortbread 

Millionaire Shortbread is a delicious Scottish dessert, that is layers of buttery shortbread, thick fudge like caramel and a rich chocolate topping. The combination just sings. A lot of the recipes out there call for corn syrup, but I don’t like to use corn syrup so my recipe, is different because it doesn’t need corn syrup. The dessert itself is so easy to make and tastes much better than you can find in shops. I used to eat the Mr. Kipling Chocolate Caramel Slices, but once I made these millionaire shortbread bars, I haven’t turned back.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c. Line a 9 inch square pan with parchment paper. Set it aside. 

  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth. Add the flour until a dough forms. It will be crumbly but can still be shaped and pressed. 

  3. Press the crust into the lined pan. Prick with a fork and then bake at 180c for 20-25 minutes. The top should be pale, but the sides may be golden. 

  4. Remove it from the oven and set it aside. 

  5. For the caramel: Combine the condensed milk, sugar and butter in a saucepan. Mix it in and boil it for 5-7 minutes. Stir it constantly, be careful it doesn’t burn. The mixture should be golden and thicker like fudge. 

  6. Pour the caramel over the base. Chill the caramel for 1 hour until set. 

  7. Melt the chocolate and pour it over the caramel. Spread it out and shake to fill any crevices. 

  8. Chill the shortbread for 1-2 hours until the chocolate is set. 

  9. Slice and enjoy.
