Caramel Shortbread Recipe
This step by step tutorial shows you how to make your own delicious millionaire shortbread biscuit. This caramel shortbread is cheap and simple to make, and makes a perfect treat to enjoy with your afternoon tea or coffee!
- 1 cups (250ml) flour
- 1 cups (250ml) sugar
- 1 cups (250ml) muscovado sugar
- 1 condensed milk tin
- 2 cups (500ml) butter
Start by rubbing a little butter onto your oven proof dish, then dust on some flour. This will stop the shortbread sticking to the dish.
Mix 1 cup of flour and 1 cup caster sugar in a mixing bowl. Rub 1 cup of butter into the flour and sugar until you have a breadcrumb-like consistency. Pack this mixture into the dish with the back of a spoon and bake for 20 minutes at 150 degrees Celsius.
To make the caramel melt a cup of butter, then whisk in a cup of muscovado sugar. Once combined whisk in a tin of condensed milk off the heat. Return to the heat and continue to stir at a low heat.
Pour the caramel over the shortbread and leave for an hour, then another hour in the fridge.
Melt some chocolate in a mixing bowl over some simmering water, once melted let it cool a little, then pour over your set caramel. Place in the fridge for an hour or two.
Once the chocolate has set, you can remove it from the baking dish and cut into squares.
