So after baking this for the first time for a bake sale for work i have FALLEN IN LOVE. I mean who doesn't love millionaire shortbread. If rich chocolate, smooth sweet caramel and crumbly shortbread isn't for you then you can stop reading now... but if you are a regular person/ chocoholic like me then you NEED to make this. Its super easy, super quick (ish) and obscenely delicious.
So the shortbread part was stolen from one of my friends blogs, its easy to make and exceedingly good!
Visit www.leadwiththehips.co.uk/2014/01/11/easy-all-butter-shortbread-recipe/ for the recipe and say Hi to Kate from me! Follow the recipe, in my oven I bake it for a little bit longer (possibly because it's thicker than suggested)
Then comes the caramel there are 3 Ingredients:
Simply melt the butter and sugar on a low heat until its dissolved and melted. Then add the condensed milk and turn the heat up high until its thickened. Pour it over the shortbread and leave it until completely cool. This is the hardest part for me because i'm soooooo impatient.
2 out of 3 done. Finally, melt 200g of milk or dark and 50g of white chocolate. These measurements are completely up to you (and i always add more- naughty me).
Spread the milk chocolate evenly and then a spoonful at a time make dots of white chocolate and swirl them about with a fork. It sounds difficult but its really not!
Finally chill for one last time, slice into squares and TADAH! you have yourself the most scrumptious shortbread ever! The recipe makes about 8-12 pieces all dependent on how big you want your pieces to be.
|This was the first time i made them so the shortbread needed a few more minutes cooking.|
Note: if you don't like sweet things this definitely isn't for you but if you do and your anything like me then if you succeed in not eating the entire tray WELL DONE YOU.
