Millionaire's Shortbread

Delicious shortbread base layered with a creamy caramel and topped with chocolate!

We've all heard of a millionaire's shortbread and it is so-named because the delectable rich layers it consists of. Originating in Scotland (the true artists of shortbread), you can find versions of this sweet treat in most supermarkets, cafe's and shops. Though I find a nice homemade one more inviting, plus it's hard to find a good vegan version. So I present mine - vegan caramel does the most amazing things to my taste buds and I encourage you to give this a go. More classic British desserts are on their way, but in the meantime..

Check out my other classic recipes for more dessert inspiration!

200g Vegan milk chocolate
100g Vegan white chocolate


✿Preheat your oven to 180℃ and grease and line a rectangle baking tin with baking paper.
✿Make the shortbread. Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add in the flour and beat till you have a dough. 
✿Press the dough into the bottom of your baking tin making sure it is flat and even and then pop in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until it is golden on top. Once baked leave to cool in the tin.
✿Meanwhile make the caramel using this recipe. Then pour the caramel over the shortbread and place in the fridge for an hour till it is set.
✿Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave in 20 seconds intervals stirring in between and then pour over the caramel. Then melt the white chocolate and dollop in random places. Using a skewer drag it through the white chocolate to create a swirly pattern. 
✿Place back in the fridge until solid and then to cut up use a hot knife to cut into squares. Enjoy!
