Recently, Millionaires Shortbread was seen not once, but twice in one episode of the Great Sport Relief Bake Off on BBC, baked by both Anita Rani (the eventual winner) and Angela Griffin.
This is my take on the classic teatime treat. Full of flavour and incredibly addictive!
- 1 quantity of Vanilla Shortbread , I baked this in a 32 x 19cm foil traybake from Lakeland, or you could use a tray of a similar size and approximately 3cm deep. You do not want to pre-cut the shortbread before baking for this recipe though!
- 1 397g Tin of Condensed Milk
- 150g Butter – I used Slightly Salted as I like the hint of salt in the caramel
- 150g Muscovado Sugar
- 200g Milk Chocolate
Add in the Condensed Milk, and bring to the boil stirring continuously.
Allow to cool for about 30 minutes before starting on the chocolate….
Melt the Chocolate gently, either in the microwave on Medium or Simmer, or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (where the bowl is not touching the water).Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel, spreading it to cover the caramel evenly.
When the chocolate has set, cut the millionaires shortbread into squares and serve.
