- 250g plain flour
- 75g caster sugar
- 175g butter, softened
- 100g butter or margarine
- 100g light muscavado sugar
- 2 x 397g cans condensed milk
- 200g plain or milk chocolate, broken into pieces
- Pre-heat the oven to 180'C/Gas mark 4. Lightly grease a 13 x 9inch (33x23cm) Swiss roll tin.
- Mix the flour and caster sugar in a bowl.
- Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
- Knead the mixture together until it forms a dough, then press into the base of the prepared tin.
- Prick the shortbread lightly with a fork and bake in the pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes or until firm to the touch and very lightly browned.
- Cool in the tin.
- Measure the butter, sugar and condensed milk into a pan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.
- Bring to the boil, stirring all the time, then reduce the heat and simmer very gently, stirring continuously, for about 5 minutes or until the mixture has thickened slightly.
- Pour over the shortbread and leave to cool.
- Melt the chocolate slowly in a bowl over a pan of hot water.
- Pour over the cold caramel and leave to set.
- Cut into squares or bars.
