Step 2 of 5

Millionaires Shortbread Recipe step 1

Put the crushed biscuits into a bowl with the melted butter. Mix it together thoroughly, then press the mixture into the base of your tin. Chill for ten minutes.

If you're in a hurry, you can also put the tin in the freezer to chill and set each layer.  Also we've suggested using extra baking parchment to hang over the edges of the tin as you'll be able to lift your finished millionaire's shortbread recipe out with ease!
 

Step 3 of 5

Millionaires Shortbread Recipe step 2

Gently heat the sugar and remaining butter in a heavy based, non-stick pan, stirring until melted. Add the condensed milk and bring to a rapid boil, stirring continuously. Cook for around a minute or until the filling has thickened. Pour the caramel over the base, then allow to cool. Once cooled, chill in the fridge or freeze until set.

Millionaires Shortbread Recipe step 3

Melt the chocolate in separate bowls. Pour the dark chocolate over the caramel and then add spoonfuls of the melted white chocolate. Swirl together with a spoon for a marbled effect that'll ensure your millionaire's shortbread recipe looks as good as it tastes.

Step 5 of 5

Millionaires Shortbread Recipe step 4

Place back into the fridge to chill until set. Once set, remove from the tin, dip a sharp knife into hot water (this will make it much easier to cut) and then dry it briefly before using it to cut the shortbread into squares.

These scrumptious squares are great to share with friends but if you do have any left over you can keep them for up to two weeks. Simply put in an airtight container and pop it in the fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Show stopping delicious This is now a staple treat - it never fails. I recommend putting the base in the freezer while you make the caramel - it’s just long enough! I have used mixture of dark and milk chocolate which is delicious too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy and quick My mom used to make millionaires shortbread and I remember her saying how long it took so rarely made it. This was so easy and quick. I batch make it and freeze it. It de-frosts well and is as good as when it was made.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit too sweet Made this recently, the recipe was easy to follow, for my husband it was much too sweet, the smaller pieces were tasty, but gave the majority away, everyone enjoyed it but it was sweet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! Made this a few times now. Recipe easy to follow and results are amazing! I increase the biscuit base by 100g and 20g extra butter as first time it crumbled too much. Also caramel needs 4/5 mins to get right consistency. I use milk chocolate for top. Most importantly cut it upside down so the chocolate is on a level surface, muck neater squares!
