Homemade Millionaire Shortbread!

What is better than millionaire shortbread?! HOMEMADE millionaire shortbread!! It is seriously amazing so I thought I'd share the recipe I use with you all. It is quite simple but it does take quite a long time to make.
What you need...
For the shortbread:
Butter - 4 oz
Caster Sugar - 2 oz
Plain Flour - 6 oz

For the caramel filing:
Butter - 4 oz
Caster Sugar - 2 oz
Golden Syrup - 2 tbs
Condensed Milk - 5 fl oz

For the chocolate Topping:
Plain or Milk Chocolate - 4 oz
Butter - 0.5 oz
(I decided to double the recipe since I'm so addicted to it)

First of all place the butter and sugar in a bowl and mix together until light and fluffy. Next sift the flour into the same bowl and stir. Then take your freshly washed hands and knead the dough together. After that spread the dough evenly into a square tin and place it in the oven at 180°C for 25 minutes. 

Before making the caramel make sure the shortbread has cooled. The caramel filling is probably the trickiest thing to make as it is very easy to burn since it is basically pure sugar. Place all the ingredients in a sauce pan on low heat and do not remove the mixture from the heat until it begins to thicken. Also keep stirring to prevent it from burning. Let the caramel cool a little before pouring it over the shortbread and leave to set.

Finally melt the chocolate and butter together and pour over the caramel. Leave it to set for an hour then use a knife to score the chocolate into whatever shape you desire. Then place in fridge.

I hope you enjoyed this post and get to try this delicious recipe yourself.
