    Made this a little while back and it was awesome. Best dessert I’ve ever made. Definitely worth it between the time it takes to make it and getting the ingredients. I’d recommend using milk chocolate for the topping though as it’s sweeter if you don’t really like bitter chocolate.

    I love your show but i'm rolling in my future grave if you think that's the colour a shortbread should be when it comes out of the oven lol. Shortbresd should stay blond, slightly golden tinge but not golden all over.

    This recipe has many flaws. The crust and absolute terrible, very dry (not in the good way), and EXTREMELY salty. The caramel is great, but mine turned out a little over done with the recommended cook temp.

    Anyone from Australia watching Aggravated that he was saying millionaire shortbread when it’s just a caramel slice

    Those are amazing but my family makes them with peanut butter instead of caramel and it’s fucking nut worthy
