I have never made Millionaire Slices before and when I asked my husband what treats he wanted when his mates came over to watch the 20/20 finals day (Cricket) I was surprised he asked for Millionaire Slices and not Brownies!
So I went hunting for a recipe and thought I would find one in one of the many cookbooks I own, but after 10 minutes of hunting and to be honest I got a little bored, I found a recipe, then realised I didn’t have the right stuff or enough of the right stuff so here we go! a little bit of my creativity had to come into play as there was no time to go to the shop and I did not want to make a trip for a couple of things.
Now I had Plain Flour, Butter, Sugar, Condensed Milk and three types of chocolate, so happy days!
The recipe I found needed 2 tins of Condensed Milk and Muscovado Sugar, so I used one tin and soft brown sugar, well its close enough!
I then halved the recipe and presto it worked
I also realised very quickly that I hate condensed milk, not the taste or anything, just the sheer stickiness of it all and once you’ve opened the tin you look like a crazy person trying to get it all out without it going everywhere.
Anyway, I am quite proud of my first attempt and here is my adapted recipe:
For the Shortbread Base
4.5oz Plain Flour
1.5oz Caster Sugar
3oz Unsalted Butter – Soft
Method for the Base
- Put all the ingredients into a bowl and rub it together to make a crumb consistency
- Then bring it all together and press into a lined tin
- Prick the base with a fork and bake in the oven for 10 mins – or until golden
- Take it out and let it cool
For the Caramel
1 tin of Condensed Milk – 397g
1 3/4oz of light Muscovado Sugar – I
used light brown sugar
1 3/4 oz of Butter Unsalted
Method for the Caramel
- Pop it all in a saucepan and stirring constantly bring it to the boil and boil whilst stirring for 10 mins or until it turns darker and thicker
- Pour on to the base and leave to set
100g of Dark Chocolate
100g of White Chocolate
100g Milk Chocolate
Method for the Topping
- Melt the three chocolates in three separate bowls
- Once melted pour the dark chocolate on first, then blob the white and the milk.
- Once its all on marble it with the end of a spoon or fork or I use a skewer.
- Pop in the fridge to set
