  • For the base:
  • 175 g - flour
  • 125 g - butter, cut into small pieces
  • 4 tbsp - brown sugar, whole or powdered
  • For the caramel layer:
  • 55 g - Butter
  • 4 tbsp - Brown sugar
  • 400 g - condensed Milk
  • For the chocolate layer:
  • 150 g - chocolate, cut into pieces (you can use dark, white or Milk chocolate)

  • How to Make Millionaire's Shortbread:

    1. Preheat the oven to 190 degree C.
    2. Sift flour into a bowl and rub butter into it, till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
    3. Add the sugar and mix to form a firm dough.
    4. Press the dough into the base of the prepared cake tin. Prick all over, with a fork.
    5. Bake the base for 20 minutes or till, it turns lightly golden in colour. Allow it to cool completely.
    6. Meanwhile, take butter, brown sugar and condensed milk in a saucepan. Cook over gentle heat, till the mixture comes to a boil.
    7. Reduce heat and simmer for another 4-5 minutes, till the caramel thickens and pulls away from the sides. The colour of the caramel, would turn a shade darker.
    8. Take off the heat and pour on top of the shortbread base. Spread evenly and allow it to cool completely.
    9. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, to a smooth consistency. Make sure there are no lumps.
    10. Check the caramel layer. If it is cool and set, pour the chocolate over the caramel layer and spread with a spatula (if the caramel layer is not set completely, the chocolate and caramel will get mixed ). Allow it to cool completely.
    11. Cut into squares and serve.
