Millionaire’s Shortbread

Millionaire’s Shortbread

This easy sweet treat is a real crowd-pleaser and is easy to put together. Serve yours slightly warm so the gooey bits melt, or freeze a batch so you always have something yummy on standby.
Total Time
1 Hour 20 Minutes
For the Shortbread Base
100g of unsalted butter (room temperature)
50g of caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
125g of plain flour
25g of cornflour
For the Caramel Centre
300g of toffees
150ml of double cream
For the Chocolate Topping
300g of milk chocolate
Electric hand whisk
Mixing bowl
Lined 20cm x 20cm traybake tin
Microwaveable bowl
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan).

Step 2

In the mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar with the electric hand whisk.

Step 3

Add the flour and cornflour and continue to mix with the electric hand whisk until a crumb consistency is achieved, then pour the mix into the lined tin.

Step 4

Spread out evenly and push down so the crumbs form a smooth base, before baking for 15 minutes.

Step 5

Whilst the base is baking, put the toffees and double cream in the saucepan over a medium heat, constantly stirring until the toffees have melted and combined with the cream.

Step 6

Once baked, remove the base from the oven and pour the caramel over the top in an even layer.

Step 7

Allow the whole thing to cool.

Step 8

Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each time and then pour over the cooled base and caramel to form another even layer.

Step 9

Place the whole thing in the fridge to chill for at least an hour – longer is preferable before removing from the tin and portioning.
