Recipe: Caramel Shorbread...

This was my first attempt at making Caramel Shortbread and I think it turned out pretty well. 

For the base
125g butter (room temperature)
175g plain flour
50g sugar

For the topping
50g brown sugar
50g butter (room temperature)
400g condensed milk
150g of chocolate (I used Dairy Milk Cadbury's)

Step One // Preheat your oven to Gas mark 5 or 190 C and grease a baking tray.
Step Two // Combine all of your base ingredients (butter, flour, sugar) into a bowl and create a dough.
Step Three // Press the dough into the tray and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Once baked allow to cool.
Step Four // Whilst your base is cooling, pour the condensed milk, butter and brown sugar into a pan. Allow this to boil and then boil gently for a futher 5 minutes - make sure you continue to stir the mixture to ensure it does not burn or stick to the pan.
Step Five // Pour the topping over the base and allow to cool.
Step Six // Melt your chocolate either in the microwave (in about 10-20 second intervals stopping to stir it) or over a pan. Then pour this over your topping and allow it to cool.
Step Seven // Once cool, cut into squares.

And there you have a simple but delicious recipe for the perfect Caramel Shortbread. 

*A little tip: if you'd like yours to be thicker, just double up the ingredients!*

  1. That looks amazing!! Brilliant for your first time too. My Mum made caramel shortcake when she first met my Dad, the "caramel" was so solid they had to chisel it off! I've only ever made caramel shortbread once because of that story! Might give your recipe a go as hubby loves it.x

    1. Oh dear! Glad that didn't happen to mine. Just make sure you keep mixing the caramel so it doesn't burn :) Hope you enjoy if you give it a try xo
