I first published this recipe for classing millionaires shortbread back in 2014 - can you believe it? 6 years is a very long time, so I thought I would update some of the imagery and push this recipe to the front of my blog as I've made it recently and it's still as delicious as ever! It's a surprisingly easy recipe to make and requires 6 ingredients, most of which you'll probably already have in the cupboard!
If you're craving something sweet or need to make something to share (if you're nice like that) then this makes a great option.
I'll be updating some other recipes soon such as my chocolate chip banana bread,the amazing deep dish chocolate cookie or my favourite ever lemon drizzle cake so they're easier to read, plus it gives me the opportunity to make everything again.
I mean, have you ever seen something so inviting? Try not to eat it all at once, I dare you.
For the base
125g butter (room temperature)
50g caster sugar
175g plain flour
For the topping
400g condensed milk
50g soft brown sugar
50g butter (room temperature)
150g of your favourite chocolate (I used dark chocolate, but it works well with milk too. If you want a thicker chocolate coating, use 200-250g)
Step One | Preheat your oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5 and grease a baking tray. Combine the base ingredients into a dough and press evenly into the tray. Bake for 20 minutes and allow to cool.
Step Two | Whilst that's cooling, pour the condensed milk, butter and brown sugar into a pan. Bring it to the boil and then boil gently for 5 minutes, making sure you stir continuously so it doesn't burn or stick. Pour the topping over the shortbread and allow to cool.
Step Three | Melt your chocolate over a pan or in the microwave (20 second bursts, stirring when it starts to melt) then pour it over your topping. Allow to cool once more, then cut into squares.
Oh and here's an old photo back when my site was on Blogger in 2014!
