MALTESERS ® MILLIONAIRE’S SHORTBREAD
So, maybe the previous Red Nose Day recipe wasn’t for you but never fear, here’s another that may tickle your fancy! If you didn’t know, this year Maltesers® are teaming up with Red Nose Day with the aim of raising £1 million and hey! you there, you can help! For every pack of Maltesers® sold, 5p from each sale goes straight to Comic Relief and of course, you can help by simply buying a pack of Maltesers, but how making something fancy and try this awesome Millionaire’s Shortbread recipe with a Maltesers® twist.
For the CARAMEL FILLING:-
150g Unsalted Butter
150g Dark Soft Brown Sugar
397g Can of Condensed Milk
For the TOPPING:-
200g Milk Chocolate
1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC/140ºF or Gas Mark 3
2. Line a 20cm shallow square cake tin with non-stick baking paper
(I can’t say how important this is! With the sticky caramel and the chocolate, without the paper will make it incredibly difficult to get your millionaire’s shortbread out of the tin!)
3. Put the flour, butter and sugar (base ingredients) in a food processor and blend. (If you haven’t got a food processor, fingers are just as good!)
4. When the mix comes together, press the shortbread into your tin.
5. Bake in the oven centre of the oven for 30 minutes.
6. Remove and allow to cool.
(Resist the temptation to taste a bite!)
7. Put the butter and sugar into a non-stick pan and heat, stir until melted.
8. Add in the condensed milk and stir continuously until the filling has thickened slightly.
(I found that there was additional liquid from the butter forming around the edge of the caramel so this can be dabbed away with kitchen paper or spooned out and avoid putting on the base if this happens!)
9. Pour the caramel mixture over the shortbread base and place immediately in the fridge.
(The dish I was using was slightly smaller, so I didn’t need to use all of the caramel that was made, so use your judgement as to how much you should pour in).
10. Whilst this is in the fridge, melt the chocolate to put on top. This can be melted in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Leave the melted chocolate to cool slightly and then pour this over the layer of caramel.
11. Decorate with Maltesers®
12. Leave your millionaire’s shortbread to set and then cut into squares. This mixture should cut into about 16 pieces.
(If your like me, and thought it would be a great idea to cut a massive chunk, it is quite a sweet bake so you don’t want to waste what you can’t eat!)
