Amy left a comment on Lemon Merangue post - about Millionaire's Shortbread. She described it as shortbread base, caramel layer and choc top. Sounded fantastic so I tried it!
She also asked about a low sugar caramel - I also did that and that's the next post.
How to make this delicious shortbread??
Easy - make the Shortbread from the EveryDay Cookbook - the one you get with the Thermomix - and then - when cold - spread a little caramel then squiggle on some chocolate.
HINT: don't put too much caramel - it makes it TOO sweet - besides, it's Millionaire's Shortbread, not shortbready caramel
LESSON: I tried both solid choc top AND squiggly - but a) squiggly looked better and b) easier to eat and c) it looked better. I know I said that twice, but the squiggly lines looked nice and it also showed the caramel beneath so it is worth a second mention LOL
LESSON: cut shortbread in small pieces - these are quite rich
LESSON: Read and follow the hint in the recipe - it says to cut the schortbread straight from the oven and WAIT. Then, when a bit cooler (I waited 15 minutes) THEN take out and cool on a wire rack.
