Grandma Sue’s Millionaire’s Shortbread

Grandma Sue's Millionaire's Shortbread


For the shortbread

  • 115g of margarine
  • 50g of caster sugar
  • 175g of plain flour

For the toffee

  • 115g of margarine
  • 115g of caster sugar
  • 50g of golden syrup
  • One tin of condensed milk

For the topping

  • 175g of milk chocolate
  • 50g of white chocolate


Step 1

To make the shortbread, cream the margarine and sugar together before folding in the plain flour.

Step 2

Press the shortbread mixture into a greased, lined Swiss roll tin. Prick the base all over with a fork and bake at 170C for about 20 minutes.

Step 3

To make the toffee, add the margarine, caster sugar, golden syrup and condensed milk into a heavy based saucepan. Heat over a very low heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture starts to boil. This takes around 30-40 minutes. Continue boiling for a further 10 minutes until the toffee begins to thicken. Be patient and remember to keep the heat low and keep stirring. If you try to rush this stage, the toffee may burn on the bottom of the pan.

Step 4

Pour the toffee onto the shortbread and allow to cool. Be extra careful whilst pouring the toffee as it can reach around 140C.

Step 5

Once the toffee has cooled slightly, melt the chocolate and pour over the top and leave to set. You may also wish to add a drizzle of melted white chocolate using a tablespoon.

Step 6

Cut into squares when just firm.
