Instructions

  1. Firstly you will want to make your shortbread base so line a 24cm / 9inch square baking tray with baking paper. Place the sugar and softened butter into a bowl and cream together till fluffy and light. Add the flour and coconut and mix together to form a soft dough. Pour into the prepared tin and spread it out nice and flat with a smooth top.
    Pop it into a preheated oven, 180C/350F for 15-17 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  2. Whilst the cookie base cools you can make the caramel. Into a saucepan add the butter and sugar and gently heat until the sugar has dissolved and all the butter melted. Pour in the two cans of condensed milk and stir through. Tip the caramel on top of the shortbread and give it a gently shake to level it out. Pop the baking tin back into the oven and cook for about 20 minutes or until the caramel is golden brown. Remove from the oven and again allow to cool completely.
  3. Now it’s time for the chocolate topping. Place your favourite chocolate into a bowl and gently melt over a double boiler add the oil, this stops the chocolate setting too hard and cracking when you cut your Millionaires Shortbread. Give the chocolate a final stir through to make sure it is all melted and mixed through then pour onto the caramel. Use a spatula to flatten the top and allow to set up completely.
  4. Once you Millionaires Shortbread has completely set firm you can remove it from the tin and cut into bars. I like to trim the salvage edged as this gives a ‘sharper’ bar shape but it’s not essential.
    For this recipe I used some Gold Leaf to ‘Bling’ up my Caramel Slice. I completely covered the top of a couple of slices but you could just add flecks to the top too or not add any at all – it’s up to you 😎
