See, I think this is called Millionaire's Shortbread because a small bite of this thing has about a million calories. I could have eaten the whole plate and then I'd have gained six pounds. Millionaire's Shortbread is that delicious but also very not healthy (I mean, hello, biscuit base + caramel center + two types of chocolate to top it all off = me not looking like a supermodel on the beach this summer. Heh, who cares.)

FOR THE BISCUIT BASE :
Ingredients :
150g of flour
50g of sugar
100g of softened butter

Instructions :
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, then add in the flour.
  • Spread the dough in a square pan covered in parchment paper.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until the shortbread is lightly golden. Set aside to cool.

  • FOR THE CARAMEL :
    Ingredients :
    50g of butter
    50g of sugar
    1 can (397g/14oz) of sweetened condensed milk

    Instructions:
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter with the sugar and condensed milk, stirring constantly.
  • Once the sugar is dissolved, bring to a boil.
  • Once the mixture is boiling, reduce the heat, and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. The caramel will thicken and golden.
  • Spread the caramel over the baked shortbread, and let cool.

  • FOR THE CHOCOLATE TOPPING :
    Ingredients :
    100g of milk chocolate
    50g of white chocolate

    Instructions:
  • Melt the milk chocolate and spread it over the cooled caramel.
  • Melt the white chocolate and pour it in a zig zag pattern over the milk chocolate. Using a toothpick or a knife, draw lines in the chocolates to create a swirl pattern.
  • Let the chocolate set, then cut the shortbread in squares.
