I wanna be a trillionaire…so freaking bad…

WARNING…only complete chocoholics should venture further…

Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce you to the latest addition to my baking repertoire…trillionaire’s tart…

or as I like to think of it…millionaire’s shortbread on steroids.

Rich buttery chocolate shortbread, topped with a layer of creamy, smooth, chocolate caramel, finished off with a marbled coating of milk and dark chocolate…not one for the faint hearted!

Here’s how to make it for yourselves…

Line a 20cm x 30cm tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Layer 1 – chocolate shortbread

160g unsalted butter

100g caster sugar

100g plain flour

25g cocoa

140g ground almonds

Cream the butter and sugar together until pale, sift in the flour and cocoa and stir in the ground almonds. Press into the tin and bake for 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Layer 2 – gooey chocolate caramel

175g unsalted butter

175g light brown soft sugar

450g sweetened condensed milk

4tbsp golden syrup

50g dark chocolate

and the magic ingredient…1/2tsp sea salt

Put all of the above ingredients into a pan and heat gently, stirring until all of the sugar has dissolved. Bring it to the boil and then simmer briskly for about 8 minutes until it has thickened. Pour over the shortbread base, make sure it’s spread evenly and leave for about 1 hour until it is completely cold.

Layer 3 – marbled chocolate topping

100g dark chocolate

200g milk chocolate

Melt both chocolate’s separately in bowls over simmering water. Pour the milk chocolate over the caramel and then drizzle over the dark chocolate and use your implement of choice to swirl them together making a pretty pattern.

Leave it to cool, cut into squares and there you have it…the most delicious slice of chocolatey goodness that’ll have you registering with your nearest chocoholics anonymous (or more realistically…weight watchers)!…

    Thank you so much x I made this tart from a magazine last Christmas but have misplaced my mag and have been searching all over for this amazing recipe. Promised my husband I’d make it again. He’s a big fan of millionaires shortbread but this is something else again! Happy Christmas everyone. Kathie G. xx
