Salted caramel shortbread HERO

This indulgent take on a Millionaire's shortbread has a modern twist with a thick layer of salted caramel in the middle. With a crumbly shortbread base and thick chocolate topping, these make a delicious treat that everyone will love.

  1. Line a 18x27cm (7x11in) rectangular cake tin with nonstick baking paper. Heat the oven to gas 4, 180˚C, fan 160˚C.
  2. Place the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until light and creamy. Beat in the flour until it forms a soft dough. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes until pale golden.
  3. Place the butter, sugar, golden syrup and condensed milk into a large pan over a medium heat. Stir continuously until the sugar has dissolved then turn up the heat and boil for 5-7 minutes, stirring all the time to ensure the mixture doesn't burn on the bottom of the pan.
  4. The mixture is ready when it turns a deep golden colour and has thickened to a soft fudge consistency. Stir in 1tsp salt, then pour the caramel over the shortbread and leave to set for an hour or until chewy.
  5. Put the chocolate in a bowl and melt in the microwave for 1-2 minutes (or place over a pan of simmering water). Pour melted chocolate over the caramel. Leave in a cool place to set, then cut into squares. Keep in a tin for up to 1 week.
