Oh my what a delicious slice this is! Whether you call it Millionaires Shortbread or simply Chocolate Caramel Slice, there is no doubting that it tastes ridiculously good. Combine the crunch of a shortbread base with a silky caramel middle and luscious chocolate topping and you have millionaire’s shortbread.
My first memory of a chocolate caramel slice was from our local bakery in our hometown neighbourhood. It was always nestled among the custard tarts and eclairs. I don’t think I knew anyone who wasn’t partial to somehting with caramel in it. These days I tend to shy away from anything caramel because it inevitably has loads of diary and way too much sugar for my body to cope with. But this recipe is pretty amazing as it has no dairy whatsoever and is 100% vegan.
And wonderfully, you can adjust the sweetness up or down to suit your preferences. It’s a win win. You could also make it Keto simply by swapping out the maple syrup for sugar free keto maple syrup (yes! it’s a thing), and using sugar free dark chocolate.
The shortbread base is really, really delicious even on it’s own. If you want to make yourself some simple cookies to have with tea or coffee, you can just make the base, add another 1/4 cup coconut oil, and set into bite size pieces for individual treats. You could also drizzle some chocolate on them for choc topped shortbread. This recipe just keeps on giving!
Enough said, let’s get cooking!!
