Salted Caramel Millionaire Shortbread

As it’s nearly Easter I’ve been on the hunt for some recipes to try for next weekend. When I came across this on Good To Know Recipes I knew I had to try it! The recipe was easy to follow and the results were so good (even if I say so myself!). Because this is such a sweet treat you only need a little slice. It was such a hit in our house that I can’t wait to try Good To Know Recipes other mouth-watering delights.

For this recipe you will need:

For the shortbread base:

  • 150g butter
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 200 plain flour

For the salted caramel:

  • 150ml double cream
  • 100g light muscovado sugar
  • 20g salted butter
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the chocolate topping:

  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 1 pack Mini Eggs

Begin by preheating the oven 180°C. To make the base, beat the butter and sugar until pale. Add the flour and mix until combined. Tip the mixture into the baking tray and bake for 30 minutes until golden, leave to cool.

To make the salted caramel, place the cream, sugar and butter in a small pan and heat gently, stirring until the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted. Bring the mixture to the boil and then simmer for 2 minutes until it begins to thicken. Add the salt. Pour the salted caramel over the cool biscuit base and leave to cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
