Millionaires' Shortbread Recipe

We've all seen those yummy looking millionaires' shortbreads when going into coffee shops, but did you know that they are so easy to make at home and if I say so myself, even more delicious. They only take roughly an hour and a half to make and can feed an entire household and a few hungry neighbours!


175g cold butter

75g caster sugar

250g plain flour

For the caramel:

100g butter

100g golden caster sugar

1 tin condensed milk

2 tbsp golden syrup

For the topping:

275g milk chocolate



Heat the oven to gas mark 4. With greaseproof paper, line the baking tin.

Firstly, mix the flour, butter and sugar together until the consistency resembles breadcrumbs. Knead the mixture together, then press into the bottom of the tin.

Put the tin in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until very lightly browned, then leave to cool.

To make the caramel, melt the butter, sugar, golden syrup and condensed milk in a pan.

Turn up the heat and bring to a boil, stirring until the mixture has thickened slightly.

Pour over the shortbread and leave to cool.

For the topping, chop the chocolate and melt in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Pour over the caramel.

Leave to cool and set, then add some sprinkles of your choice on top and cut into squares when done.
