Caramel Shortbread

Caramel shortbread, an old favourite!  We made ours with a crumb base, but if you have a favourite shortbread recipe that will also work perfectly.

For the Caramel
  • 1 x 397g can condensed milk
  • 150g soft dark brown sugar
  • 150g butter
  • 25g (or 1 tbsp) golden syrup
  • To finish -
  • 150g dark or milk chocolate, broken into pieces

Follow these steps

  • Start by preparing the base - melt the butter & chocolate gently in a saucepan over a low heat.
  • Add the shortbread crumbs and mix well. Press evenly into a 20 x 30cm baking tray - leave to cool.
  • For the caramel - place the butter, brown sugar and golden syrup into a heavy based saucepan and melt over a gentle heat until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Add the condensed milk and stir continuously until the caramel comes to a gentle boil - continue to simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Pour the hot caramel over the crumb base and smooth over the top - allow to cool.
  • To finish, melt the chocolate gently in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of hot (not boiling) water.
  • Spread the melted chocolate over the cooled caramel and leave to set completely.
  • Cut into squares or fingers to serve.
