Caramel shortbread, also known as caramel shortcake, caramel squares, caramel slice, millionaire's shortbread, and millionaire's slice, is a biscuit confectionery item composed of a crunchy and rich rectangular shortbread biscuit base topped with a chewy and soft caramel filling and a shiny milk chocolate topping
- 400g flour
- 360g butter
- 200g castor sugar
Middle Layer Caramel Filling
- 100 g Butter
- 100 g Brown sugar
- 2 Cans Condensed Milk
- 2 tsp Vanilla Essence
- 400 g Dark Chocolate (Belcolade)
- 100 g Milk Chocolate (Belcolade)
- 60 g Butter
- 1 tbs Oil
Mix and rub the butter into the flour to form a crumb-like mixture.
Press this mixture into an oven tray and bake at 160C / 320F for 40 minutes different ovens will vary.
Melt butter and brown sugar.
Add the condensed milk and bring it to boil until the color becomes slightly darker and thicker.
Now add vanilla essence and mix through.
Once thickened pour the caramel layer over the baked and cooled off base.
Melt and mix the dark chocolate, butter, and oil in a microwave dish.
Be careful not to burn the chocolate.
Gently pour the melted chocolate over the caramel middle layer.
Carefully melt the milk chocolate in a microwave dish.
Scoop into a disposable piping bag with a tiny opening and drizzle the top with melted white chocolate. It is easier to drizzle this way.
Cover dish with Saran Wrap, a thin, clingy plastic wrap, and chill the millionaire's shortbread for 20 min in the freezer.
Then remove and cut it into squares.
You can store in an airtight container up to a week.

This looks delicious, but I admit the calories are scary. Is vanilla essence the same thing we would call vanilla extract or flavoring here in the States? #SENISAL Michele
Hi Michele. This is a treat and although the calories are high you should treat yourself from time to time. You’re correct on the vanilla it’s the same thing.
The title cracked me up ….but this looks heavenly. Have to try…..so tempting!!!
Talat, hope you will feel like the wife of the Millionaire when you enjoy this.
