Millionaire's Shortbread :)

Just so you know, in case you don't , I am not a millionaire, but hey nothing is stopping me from having this yummy treat.  On the other hand - living here in Minnesota we have gone from 95 to 41 in a few days time.  Quite the weather we have here.  Today is National Peanut butter Cookie day - so I may have to do a post for them too, since they have always been one of my very favorites.

Millionaire's Shortbread
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 c. butter
5 tbsp. corn syrup
1  14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
7 oz. semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
1 tbsp. canola oil

Preheat your oven to 360.  Line a 9 x 13 pan with foil.  Stir together your flour and powdered sugar and cut in the 1 cup of butter unti lcourse crumbs result - press into the pan.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden.  Remove from oven.
For the caramel:  Melt the last stick of butter in the microwave and stir in the corn syrup and condensed milk.  Microwave on high for 8-9 minutes, stirring every minute or 2.  Stir in the vanilla.  Spread over the shortbread layer.  Refrigerate for about 2 hours.  Melt the chocolate with the tbsp. of oil, spread over the chilled caramel layer.  Chill.  Cut into bars.


  1. Hiya, just wondering what canola oil would be in the UK. The shortbread looks scrumptious. Love how the caramel is oozing out in the photo x
