Hope I'm doing this right! This recipe I have had for over 30 years and do not know its origin but it is good.

Millionaires Shortbread (Chocolate Mallow Short bread)

Shortbread Ingredients

7½ ounces plain flour [all purpose flour]

6 ounces butter

3 ounces castor sugar [superfine sugar]

Sift flour & sugar together. Rub in butter until thoroughly combined and smooth Press into a greased & lined tin (30 cm × 10 cm [12" by 4" - a seven inch square cake pan would work], my tin is an old toffee tin) pierce over surface with a fork. Bake in the oven Gas reg 3 or 160°C [350°F] for 30 minutes until golden.

Allow to cool in tin.

Toffee Ingredients

4 ounces sugar

4 ounces butter

2 tablespoons of golden syrup [corn syrup will work if you can't find this]

1 small can of condensed milk ( or ½ of a large tin -- take the top off & gently pour until you can see the top of the bottom of the tin, a tip my sister gave me)

Put all ingredients into a pan on a low light light to melt & dissolve sugar. Then boil until toffee coloured, stirring all the time for about 10 minutes. Pour over shortbread and allow to cool & set. (Don’t over cook because it will be too hard to cut)

3 ounces of chocolate, milk or dark cooking chocolate ( you can use more chocolate if you wish) Melt and spread over the toffee. When cool cut into finger sized bars.

Looks good, Jensue. I have added in some bracketed conversions for our American friends. Just curious, where does the 'Mallow' come from?

Jefa I think 'mallow' comes from the caramel/toffee which needs to be fairly soft.
