Millionaires Shortbread Recipe

Chocolate Covered Shortbread

A winning recipe for a tea-time treat. This Millionaires Shortbread Recipe makes a thick fudge-like caramel to spread over the crisp shortie base and then the chocolate covered top is thick and shiny.

I enjoy making millionaires shortbread with my daughter, she loves to gently stir the melting chocolate to go on the top and of course lick the spoon once its spread over. This cookie bar recipe also makes a lovely gift if you pack the shortbread squares in a pretty gift box.

  • 25g/ 1 oz castor sugar

  4. Knead slightly then press the shortbread mixture into the tin.

  5. Bake in a moderate oven for 25 minutes.

  6. Cool in the tin.

    For The Caramel Fudge Filling

  7. Stir the butter, brown sugar, syrup and condensed milk together in a heavy based pan over a gentle heat, until dissolved.

  8. Now boil for 7 minutes but keep stirring to prevent the fudge catching on the bottom.

  9. Add the vanilla essence then beat with a wooden spoon, off the heat, until cool and shiny.

  10. Pour over the shortbread base in the tin and set aside to cool.

  11. Once the caramel has cooled, melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water and then spread the chocolate evenly over the caramel fudge.

  12. When the chocolate has slightly cooled, cut into squares.

  13. Store in the refrigerator to keep the chocolate firm.
