Golden Millionaire’s Shortbread Recipe

It seems to have become a tradition to do baking on a Sunday for me now and you are all so keen to know the recipe when I post my scrumptious creations on social media. So today I made one of my favourites Golden Millionaire’s Shortbread and they actually turned out really good to my surprise! Here is everything you’ll need to recreate these golden delights.


175g cold butter

250g plain flour

75g caster sugar

For the caramel

100g butter

100g golden caster sugar

2 tablespoons golden syrup

1 tin (379g) condensed milk

For the topping

350g milk chocolate

gold edible glitter (I got mine from Waitrose)


Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/GM4. Line a 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper.

To make the shortbread, rub the butter in to the flour and sugar until you have a breadcrumb consistency. Knead the mixture together, then press it tightly into the bottom of the tin.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden, then leave to cool completely.

For the caramel, melt together the butter, sugar, golden syrup and condensed milk in a pan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil, all the while stirring, until the mixture has thickened slightly and turned a golden colour.

Pour the caramel over the shortbread, spread it out evenly and leave to cool.

When the caramel is cool, make the chocolate topping. Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl isn’t touching the water. Pour on top of the caramel and spread evenly.

Allow to cool and set, then sprinkle with edible gold glitter, and cut into squares.

So there you have it a really simple and easy recipe to follow. I loved making these and would love to see your photos if you make these too. Tag me at @couponqueenemma and enjoy!
