A dessert titled Millionaire’s Shortbread probably gives you a clue that it is going to be pretty rich. And rich it is with it’s buttery base, thick caramel center and sweet chocolate topping. A little goes a long way….you can bank on that. :)
250g shortbread biscuits (about 40 Social Tea Biscuits), crushed
55g melted butter
150g dark brown sugar (3/4 cup)
1 (400g) can sweetened condensed milk
200g milk chocolate, melted
1. Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter. Press firmly into an 8 or 9-inch square tin lined with parchment paper or non-stick foil. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
2. Heat the sugar and remaining butter in a saucepan, stirring, until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Add the sweetened condensed milk and bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Cook until the first bubbles appear on surface. remove from heat as soon as it comes to a boil. Pour the caramel over the base. Cool then chill until set, about 30 minutes.
3. Pour the chocolate over the caramel smoothing out to edges of the tin. when chocolate has set cut into squares.
Makes 16 (big) squares —(I would cut them a bit smaller….then eat about 6)

I am such a sucker for this kind of 80-ish goth vocal style song. Throw in those sick guitars, catchy hook and ending ‘oohs’ and you’ve got such an awesome tune.
