Millionaires Shortbread

This may be my favourite type of biscuit. When I was at school, there was a shop nearby that sold epic sized gooey caramel shortbread. They were devine!!! They are also probably the thing I feel most guilty about eating!! I decided to take a stab at this cake and bring the result into work so that I wouldn’t be tempted :). Its certainly not anything healthy but hey, we all deserve a treat every now and then!

Millionaires Shortbread

Looks like a chocolate cake!

  • 225g Plain flour
  • 375g unsalted butter
  • 75g sugar
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 300g plain chocolate

But its filled with gooey caramel!

  1. Line a tin with greaseproof paper. I used a silicone pie dish and this worked a treat. Preheat oven to 180.
  2. Put the flour and sugar into a bowl and rub in 175 g. of butter, clumping the dough together to make a ball. I did this in a food processor.
  3. Press this mixture into the tin and flatten down. Prick it all over with a fork.
  4. Place this mixture into an oven preheated to 150 degrees and cook for about 30 minutes. Once cooked, allow to cool.
  5. Melt the butter, stir in condensed milk and golden syrup. Bring to the boil and boil until it has turned a golden fudgy brown!
  6. Pour toffee mixture onto shortbread and allow to set.
  7. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate. Once the toffee is set, pour over chocolate. I refridgerated it overnight and served with tea!
