I Want To Be A Millionaire Shortbread

Millionaires shortbread seems like one of those things that should be super duper hard to make, but this recipe is actually surprisingly easy. The recipe is in part inspired by a Phil Vickery recipe, but the rest I've tweaked and changed to make it easier and even more yummy (if I do say so myself).

  • 120g Butter
  • 60g Golden caster sugar
  • 160g Plain flour mix (Doves Farm, Glutafin)
  • 397g Tin Carnation Caramel (Nestle)
  • 200g Milk chocolate
  • 100g White chocolate
  • A few drops of vanilla extract
  • Baking parchment
  • 20cm Tin (I used a round tin)
  • Pop the oven up to Gas mark 4. Grease the tin with butter and line with baking parchment.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl then add the vanilla extract. Sieve in the flour and run into the butter flour mix with your finger tips until it looks a bit like breadcrumbs.
  • Pop the mixture into your lined tin and press down with your fingers or the back of a metal spoon until even.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25minutes. Take it out of the oven and leave to cool.
  • When the base is cool pour the caramel over the base spreading evenly and pop in the fridge. The caramel won't set completely but will harden slightly.
  • Melt the milk and white chocolate in separate bowls, either in the microwave or over simmering water. Pour the milk chocolate over the caramel until its completely covered. Use the white chocolate to drizzle over the milk chocolate to create a marbling effect.
  • Pop back in the fridge when the chocolate has cooled. When the chocolate has set, slice into pieces. Stuff your pockets full and run for the hills.
