- Prep: 20 mins
- Cook: 15 mins
- Yields: 15-20 Party size
Preheat the oven to 180C and grease a large baking dish.
- Mix together all the ingredients for the shortbread in a large bowl until it starts to come together, lightly press into the base of a greased baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes, until slightly golden. Set aside to cool ready for the caramel layer.
- For the caramel: place the sugar into a large saucepan and place over a medium heat allowing the sugar to melt without stirring. When the sugar has melted and turned a deep amber colour, gently add the butter a nugget at a time until it has all melted. Very slowly pour the cream into the sugary butter, it will start to hiss and bubble, let this mixture gently boil for 1 minute and then remove it from the heat and allow the caramel mixture to cool. If you would like a thicker layer of caramel then double this recipe.
- When the caramel has cooled, pour over the shortbread and place in the fridge, chill until the caramel has set.
- Melt both the chocolates in heatproof bowls over saucepans of boiling water. When the caramel has set pour the milk or dark chocolate, your choice, over the top, with a spoon drizzle the white chocolate over in swirls.... This is a perfect gift for Christmas, have fun kids and happy baking.......
