For the shortbread

  • 200 g Butter
  • 80 g Caster sugar
  • 225 g Plain flour
  • 9 Mini Creme Eggs cut in half

For the caramel

  • 170 g Butter
  • 75 g Granulated sugar
  • 80 g Golden syrup
  • 397 g Condensed milk

For decoration

  • 100 g Dark chocolate
  • 125 g Milk chocolate
  • 7 Mini Creme Eggs cut in half
  • 5 Creme Eggs cut in half
  • Sprinkles optional


  • Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4, line a 8" square tin with greaseproof paper. I grease the tin first with a little butter to help the paper stick to it
  • To make the shortbread biscuit base mix the caster sugar and butter together into a bowl until creamy, using a spoon or an electric mixer if you have one
  • Add the plain flour and mix in until a dough forms
  • Arrange the halved mini creme eggs in the bottom of the lined tin, press the shortbread base down with your fingers over and in between them until compact and even
  • Bake the shortbread biscuit base for 20-25 minutes, until lighty golden, then leave to cool fully in the tin
  • To make the caramel, put all of the ingredients into a pan on a low heat and stir until everything is melted together
  • Bring the mixture to the boil, stirring continuously, and let it boil for 5-7 minutes until thick and golden (I boiled mine for 6 minutes)
  • Take the mixture off the heat, then pour the caramel over the top of the shortbread base
  • Put into the fridge to set for at least 2 hours, or overnight if you prefer
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Break into pieces and put in a microwave safe bowl. Blast for 30 seconds, then stir, then blast in 10 second intervals stirring between each one until melted
  • Pour the chocolate over the caramel and smooth it out, tap the tin onto your work surface a few times to remove any air bubbles and to create an even surface
  • Press the creme egg and mini creme egg halves into the chocolate and add sprinkles if using
  • You can set the chocolate in the fridge for a quicker result, or leave at room temperature to set
  • It is best to slice this shortbread at room temperature to avoid cracking the chocolate top, remove the millionaire's shortbread from the tin and remove the baking paper. Slice carefully using a large sharp knife, it helps if the length of the knife is longer than the shortbread
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container, kept in the fridge it will last for 2 weeks
