Hi guys! Hope you are all having a wonderful week. If not, I’m about to make it better 🙂 As you know, our family is a sucker for trying out new, delicious, treats. When we saw the title of today’s tried and true recipe, we knew we couldn’t pass it up. I mean, anything that has the word Millionaire, in it, has to be awesome, right? Right!

These Millionaire Bars were simple to put together and oh so yummy to eat! I love the mixture of a soft crusty bottom, with an ooey gooey middle, and a perfectly thin layer of chocolate on top. They remind me of Twix bars with the combo of a crust, caramel and chocolate and are definitely a current favorite!!

Try them out and let us know if you think they hold up to their title. Here is the printable recipe…

Ingredients

Base

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Caramel

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk

Topping

  • 3.5 oz milk chocolate finely chopped, or semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter cut into pieces

Instructions

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in your flour mixture until just incorporated. Spread into an 8 x 8" baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake at 325 for 15-18 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

  2. For the filling, combine butter, sugar, corn syrup and condensed milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally, until smooth and the butter is melted. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to low, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens a bit and turns amber color. Spread over the shortbread layer and let cool completely. Once cooled, let set in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
  3. For the chocolate glaze, heat butter and corn syrup in a small saucepan until melted. Remove from heat, add chocolate and stir until melted. Immediately pour over the condensed milk layer. Cool completely and chill for a few hours before cutting into squares.
