Millionaire Shortbread…. and billion of calories!

25 Apr

The Millionaire Shortbread is one of the slice that we sell at the Divertimenti Café.

When you look at it, it really looks amazing but a Snickers or a Mars are really light in comparison!

Let’s have a look at the ingredients to understand what I am talking about….

Anyway, this is the perfect recipe for kids….. chocolate for clean fingers, caramel absolutely non sticky and so light that they’ll be starving for dinner!

Ingredients for the biscuit

  • 300g self raising flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 200g butter

Ingredients for the caramel layer

  • 200g butter
  • 386g condensate milk
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 4 tbs golden syrup

Ingredients for the chocolate topping

  • 400g of dark chocolate


For that recipe you’ll need a 30x40cm baking tin folded with parchment paper.

First melt the butter in a pan and mix it with the sugar and the flour. Pour the crumbs in the tin and press the surface so that it looks flat.

Cook about 20′ at 180° until golden brown. Let it cool down in the tin on a rack.

While that time, prepare the caramel.

In a pan, bring to the boil the butter, milk, syrup and sugar. Always keep an eye on it and stirr it constently to avoid the caramel from burning.

Once it became brown and sticky, pour it on the biscuit and let it cool down.

At last, melt the chocolate in a bowl on a bain-marie and pour it on top of the caramel.

Let it cool down and cut it into slices or squares.
