A classic millionaire's shortbread recipe, but made with even more love! A three ingredient, super buttery shortbread, luxurious condensed milk caramel and a beautiful marble chocolate top make up this Valentine's Day millionaire shortbread. This one really shows your loved ones how much you care... and tastes pretty darn good too!


Preheat the oven to 180°c. In a large bowl, whisk together your flour and sugar, and crumble in your cold butter until the dough resembles breadcrumbs, add your red food colouring here.. 

Tip the dough onto a floured surface, and press together with your hands, until you get a rectangle. Flour again and with a rolling pin, press down and roll the dough into a 2cm thick rectangle, the size of your baking tray. 

Line the tin with butter and parchment paper, lay your shortbread into the tin, prick with a fork and place in the oven to bake for 30-40 minutes. 

Let the shortbread completely chill, and make the caramel by adding all the ingredients into a saucepan, and heating on medium heat, constantly stirring, until you reach a deep caramel colour, and the mixture is thick. Be careful here as the caramel will be very hot and will burn if touched!

Pour the caramel onto the cooled shortbread, let set in the fridge for 20 minutes, and cover with your melted chocolate, letting this set again until the chocolate has hardened. 

Cut into squares, we dusted ours with raspberry powder, but these can be enjoyed as is!
