Millionaires Shortbread

So I’m guessing these are known as millionaire shortbread because they are so decadently rich!  The base is rich, buttery shortbread then topped with a caramel-like filling and topped with a luscious layer of chocolate ganache.

I first heard of this caramel shortbread when browsing through the cookbook “Baked: New Frontiers in Baking” but the recipe was a tad fussy so I streamlined it a bit.  Further – I wanted a more decadent chocolate layer to top these bars so I swapped out theirs with my favorite.  Don’t be put off if the instructions look long – I’ve just put a lot of  detail in them.

Some also refer to these as dulce de leche bars.  It doesn’t matter what you call them – they are fantastic no matter what the name:)
