Admit it, who doesn’t love millionaire’s shortbread? And better yet, a no bake one. The past few weeks I’ve been craving these delicious biscuits and finally got down to making myself some over the weekend.
So here are my reasons to love these biscuits…
- Because they so rich
- Because they taste like a million bucks
- Because they contain a million calories
In the end who cares. As long as you can enjoy them with a cuppa and a friend equally naughty as yourself.
Let’s get baking
2½ cups shortbread biscuits (250g)
60g melted butter
Filling & Top
2/3 cup butter (150g)
2/3 cup brown sugar (150g)
1 tin condensed milk
200g dark chocolate
Blitz the biscuits till they form a crumb. Add the butter.
In a lined 20cm square tin / dish, press the biscuit mix in. Place into the freezer to set while you carry on with the caramel.
In a saucepan on medium heat, add the butter and sugar. Stir till the butter has melted and the sugar has partially dissolved. Add the condensed milk and turn up to a rapid boil, continue stirring for a further 2 – 3 minutes or until the caramel thickens. You’ll notice small brown flecks appearing in the caramel, that’s all good. Remove from the heat.
Do stir it all the time and do not be tempted to taste or feel, THE MIXTURE IS HOT. You’ve been warned!
Remove the biscuit from the freezer. Pour the caramel onto the base and leave it to stand for at least 30 minutes.
Break the chocolate into pieces and melt it in a bowl placed on a pot of simmering water. Stir until the chocolate melts.
Remove from the heat. Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel and leave to set.
Once done, slice the millionaire shortbread into squares. Enjoy ♥
