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.

Step 4 of 5

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 Millionaires Shortbread The best Millionaires Shortbread recipe ever!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious I have made this recipe a few times and it is absolutely delicious. Very rich, so people only have one square! The hardest part is cutting into those squares! I tried dipping the knife into hot water as suggested and it helps a little, but the chocolate is so hard, it just cracks in any direction so I have never had perfect squares, but that adds to the charm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Caramel Shortcake - ever! I've made this several time now (the first few time with just dark chocolate on top). It's so easy to make (dare I say fool proof!) - it has a large caramel layer compared to the shortcake base, but with the dark chocolate, it's perfect. This has become a firm favourite with family, friends and my Boss!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Delicious I made this for the family a few weeks ago and they loved it. Would definitely make it again as it was so easy to make. So much better than you can buy in shops. My only thing I did wrong was was when I was melting white chocolate overheated it so wasn’t able to have the lovely swirl effect on top. Would have more patience to heat chocolate slower next time. Well worth making

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy and absolutely delicious So easy. No oven required. All done on the hob. The chocolate was very thick, think I may use a little less next time as it made it tricky to cut. But absolutely scrumptious
