Millionaires Shortbread with Sea Salted Caramel

I made up this recipe myself, it's a mixture of 3 amazing things combined into one; shortbread, salted caramel and white chocolate. Salted caramel seems to be the new 'in thing' and I am so on board with this; it's amazing. I first had it around christmas time in ice cream form at a West End show and it was like heaven (if not, slightly over priced). 
The white chocolate addition was a bit of a trial but I think it worked really nicely. It's really your choice which chocolate you use to top them, or be greedy like me and use both!
I also made a very large mix of them so i'm going to post my recipe, halved!

Shortbread ingredients
175g butter (room temp)
75g caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
225g plain flour
Salted caramel ingredients
1 397g can of sweetened condensed milk (i used carnation)
175g butter
1 tsp sea salt
2 tbs golden syrup
To top
400g Either milk or white chocolate- depending on how adventurous you're feeling!

(preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, grease a square cake tin)

  1. Put all of the shortbread ingredients into a large bowl and using your fingers, form a rough dough
  2. Press the dough into your cake tin and prick all over with a fork
  3. Place in the oven for 5 minutes, then turn the heat down to 150 and cook for a further 35-40 minutes
  4. Meanwhile, place all of the caramel ingredients into a big saucepan, stir on a medium heat until the butter is melted then bring to the boil for 10 minutes, stirring
  5. When the shortbread is out, pour the caramel over and place in the fridge until the caramel is cooled and slightly firm
  6. Melt the chocolate, pour over and leave to set, once again
  7. Cut into squares
Enjoy! x
