Millionaire Treat

image

Recently all I’ve been buying from coffee shops is perfect squares of millionaire caramel shortbread. So when I saw a tin of ready made caramel in my cupboard I knew what I was going to make.

A crumbly biscuit base in which I used a low fat baking spread/butter. This is to make me feel better when eating it, as somewhere in the recipe is a low fat ingredient contribution. The chocolate and caramel are just fine!!! Lol 😉

I didn’t realise how simple it is to make this delicious treat. Just need to bake the base and the rest is just pouring, spreading and chilling!

One that the children would love to make and devour I’m sure!

Enjoy! I hope to be writing up some more recipes very soon. Have a beautiful day…Much love, D x

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 150c.  Line a square baking tin with some grease proof paper

Throw in the flour, butter and sugar into a food processor and whizz until you have a breadcrumb like consistency

You can also mix the above ingredients using a mixing bowl and fingers

Take the base mixture and firmly level out using your fingers into the baking tin

Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly golden brown.  Set aside to cool completely

Pour over the caramel onto the shortbread biscuit base.  Spread evenly. Chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes

Finally remove the caramel and base from the fridge and pour on the melted chocolate

Set aside until the chocolate topping has hardened.  Gently slice the shortbread into squares

The caramel may ooze out…don’t worry!
