A sweet treat...



I've got a real sweet tooth and absolutely love spending Sundays baking in the kitchen. I don't get chance to do it as often as I'd like now but when I do - it always has to be something sweet.

This recipe is easy and absolutely delicious so even if you're a novice in the kitchen - everyone will love this bake!

So I give you the often understated... Millionaire Shortbread.

Ingredients:

- 250g shortbread biscuits which need to be crushed.
- 55-100g of melted butter. I found that 80g works best.
- 150g butter.
- 150g dark brown soft sugar.
- 397g can Carnation condensed milk.
- 200g dark chocolate (I prefer Green & Blacks)
- 55g Milkybar
- A 20cm brownie tin will work well and make sure you line it with baking parchment.

How to make:

1. Crush your shortbread biscuits and combine with the melted butter. Once in the tin, put in the fridge for around 20 minutes.

2. Heat your sugar and the remaining butter in a pan gently. Make sure you keep stirring until everything has melted. Add the condensed milk and bring to the boil whilst stirring continuously.
When it starts bubbling, make sure you take it off the heat! The filling needs to be thick so it should be ready in around a minute or so. Then pour the caramel over the base, and then cool before you put it back in the fridge to set.

3. Melt the dark chocolate and then pour this over the set caramel. Then melt the Milkybar and add spoonfuls of this on top of the dark chocolate. Swirl together with a spoon to create a cool marbled effect.

4. Pop your shortbread back in the fridge to chill. Mine took around an hour and a half. Remove from the tin and then cut into squares. Tip: Dip your knife in hot water and then dry on a kitchen towel as it will make it easier to cut through your set chocolate.

5. Dig in!
