Im calling this millionaire shortbread ‘New & Improved’, not because I have changed its flavours (some things just can’t be changed! Classic is best in this case) but because of the chocolate decoration.
It has the name ‘Millionaire” to imply luxury. But this shortbread should be Called “Extra millionaire shortbread’, because having gold dust and triple chocolate on top of a buttery biscuit and caramel makes this incredibly indulgent!
To get the perfect caramel for your shortbread it is best to cook the condensed milk,(sugar & butter) on a low hob and gradually heat it up so that it gets that beautiful dark caramel shade rather than high and fast so that it burns.
If however you don’t feel as though you have the time to make your own caramel, Carnations do an amazing version of there own caramel, tinned and ready to use straight away (but homemade is always best I think).
If you are thinking of baking this weekend and are stuck for ideas, why not try baking millionaire shortbread. Simple to bake and looks very very impressive!
