Millionaires Shortbread

Yield: 20

Ingredients

  • 250g Pams butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons Pams butter
  • 3/4 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 cup chocolate melts
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate melts

Method

Preheat oven to 160 C.  Beat 250g butter and sugar until pale and creamy, mix in flour until well incorporated.  Press shortbread into a lined slice pan, prick with a fork and bake for 20 minutes until firm and lightly golden.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Combine 2 tablespoons of butter, golden syrup and condensed milk in a small saucepan and mix over a gentle heat until butter is melted, bring mixture to a simmer taking care not to burn.    Spread caramel over the slightly cooled base and return to the oven for 4-5 minutes.  Remove from the oven and cover with dark chocolate melts, set aside for a few minutes and then gently spread with a knife.  Melt the white chocolate melts in the microwave on reduced power and then drizzle over the dark chocolate.  Using a skewer run the white chocolate into the dark chocolate to create a swirl effect.  Allow to set and then cut into squares.

  1. Yes I am sure you could use caramelised condensed milk but you would still need to cook it on the base as you want the caramel to be slightly chewy and not sloppy as it is when it comes out of th can.
