Millionaire's Bars










I haven't updated my blog for days. I am so busy with everything and it's hard to believe but I haven't baked anything for about 2 weeks. I made those Millionaire's Bars probably one month ago and since then the recipe has been saved as draft. But it's too good not to be shared so luckily today I found a spare minute to post it. There's nothing much to tell. If you like condensed milk and have a very sweet tooth, this recipe is going to be a keeper. I warn you - these bars are very rich. But good. So good with unsweetened morning coffee.

Millionaire’s Bars

Base:

125g (1 cup) flour 
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
113g (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
50g (1/4 cup) sugar

Caramel:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces 
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp light corn syrup
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

Topping:
3.5 oz / 100g milk or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped 
1/2 tsp light corn syrup
30g (2 tbsp) 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces 

1) Preheat oven to 160C / 325F. Line a 20 x 20 / 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine together butter and sugar and beat with a mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in the flour mixture and mix just until incorporated. Spread into the pan and bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely.


2) To make the filling, combine together butter, sugar, corn syrup and condensed milk in a saucepan. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter in melted and the mixture looks smooth. Bring to boil and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens a bit and turns amber color. Spread onto the shortbread layer and let cool completely. Transfer into the fridge for a few hours or overnight. 

2) To make the chocolate glaze, combine together butter and corn syrup in a small saucepan and heat until the butter is melted. Remove from heat, add chocolate and stir until melted. Pour over the condensed milk layer immediately. Cool completely before cutting into squares. For the best results, slice only after chilling for a few hours.

  2. Will this recipe work without the 1/2 tsp corn syrup?
    I have honey...can I use that instead?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. if you speak about the glaze then yes - it's only 1/2 tsp so you can definitely use honey instead

  3. This recipe looks disgusting. And the ingredients look like a heart attack in a minute. Please include calories, carbohydrates, and fat for those of us who need the information. But I would pass on this one.

    1. My blog is not a professional food website but a place where I share my personal baking experiences with the world. I never count calories and don't know enough about the nutrition facts of the ingredients to be able to teach others about them. If you are looking for all this information I suggest looking for another blog - there are plenty of them which provide this information, however, I DO have some healthy and low calorie recipes in my blog. If you try any of these, please leave a comment! Thank you.
      I ate 6 of them at once and survived. So I assure you - one bar will not kill you!

    2. Great answer to a crabby-ass! These look and sound and most certainly taste AMAZING! Thank you for publishing the recipe. :-)

    3. To "Anonymous": such rudeness is a reflection of a lack of basic manners. No one is compelling you to be on this site. Perhaps your need is not a recipe but a crash course in courtesy.

      Delete
    4. Why do people who leave rude comments always remain anonymous? I doubt anonymous actually thinks this recipe looks disgusting. Otherwise #1 they would not even pause to look at it and #2 they certainly would not need to know the nutritional facts on it.
      Me and the majority of your readers think it looks amazing. As for the rest of the ones who don't think it does, most are educated enough to know if you don't have anything nice or helpful to say, then just go on your way and say nothing at all.

    5. Thank you Brenda, it means a lot to me! You and other readers are the reason why I write this blog.

    6. Some people are so damn rude, if you are concern about your health then don't ask about the nutritional value, keep it moving. It looks good but it does sounds fattening, right up my alley.... Lol

    8. Wow. Thank you for sharing! Hard to believe that someone chooses to be so hateful to you instead of just "passing". I hope all the positive comments outshadow the meanness.

      Delete
    9. If someone needs the nutrition information, there are many online sites that will produce that information if you enter all the ingredients, and then enter the number of equal servings. It is not difficult, works well when you enter accurate information. No need for anyone to be rude, no need for you to be obligated to provide that information. I grew up using cookbooks, like the 1940s versions of Good Housekeeping and Better Homes and Gardens. No nutrition information, and we all survived and most of the recipes were totally yummy. And I think your recipes look delicious.

    10. People like this lady upset there are thousands and thousands of healthy nutritional cookbooks out there recipes go to them but don't come on a side that has delicious mouth-watering food and complain it's really irritating nobody's making you read her recipes nobody's making you make them so take your pompous behind over to the nutrition center and find something Bland boring and nutrition date and leave us food lovers the heck alone have a nice day

  4. Oh, my goodness, people want so much for so little, don't they. If they can't figure out by looking at the ingredients for these bars that they are not on their diet, go figure.

    Your blog is lovely and I have found some recipes that I would like to try - the only thing I can suggest that would make it easier on yourself and save you some time would be to use fewer pictures - I know what a pain Blogger can be adding photos sometime :-)

    I'll be back! T.

  6. Awesome recipe. And ignore the earlier rude person. A blog is what you want and not what others want. She can look up the nutrient value on any website. Anyhow, I shall be making these this weekend. I eat sweetened condensed milk straight out of the can. Yummy!!

  7. I think you handled the heckler quite well. This is after all, a dessert. Not meant to be on anybody's no carb, no sugar diet.

    But, moderation can be a good thing no? I doubt would eat 6, but one or two, well why not! They look sinfully yummy!

  8. I want to try this recipe, looks amazing! One question, for topping it says 30g (2 tbsp) 1/4 cup - do you mean 1/4 stick? A quarter cup is 4 tbsps or 60grams.

    Thanks :)

  9. Hi,

    My friend shared your link for this recipe as I was looking for a recipe to make Millionaire Shortbread for the first time. I made it on Sunday, and finally got it finished on Tuesday! Anyway - it came out fantastically. The caramel I think I did for too long as it ended a lot darker than yours and more of a chewy caramel (nice chewy mind!) but I wanted a very pale, gooey one! I'll just have to experiment a few times.

    Everyone who tried it loved it though and said it tasted amazing. I was really pleased with it too. I think the trick with the shortbread is to use the best quality butter that you can.

    I cannot get over how rude that earlier commenter was - I thought your response was a lot more dignified than what mine would have been! I cannot understand why they were even looking at this recipe if they wanted a 'healthy' recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I just made these bars today -- they're delicious!
    As I didn't have corn syrup, I used honey in both the filling and the glaze. The consistency was still good. Also, it says in the recipe to use 2tbsp butter, but 1/4c is 4tbsp (probably just a typo).

    Best,

    K

  11. These look like hips on a plate! Wonderful!!! I will be making them tonight when I deport the family to bed... Otherwise I'm sure I won't even get a taste.

  12. "I didn't see where the recipe called for any calories so I didn't put any in." Thats what I tell people that complain about my rich baked goods. I am headed to the store now. This recipe looks amazing.

  13. It's so upsetting when you are done scooping out the can of condensed milk and have to lick the spoon hahahahahaha omg so good!! Making these for my Christmas dessert platter.

  14. This will be a must try for me, it looks amazing...thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Per earlier commenters, what is the butter quantity on the glaze? 1/4 cup, 1/4 stick, 2 tablespoons? Also, can you give an approximate time or temperature the caramel should reach? Amber is kind of subjective. I think I overcooked mine, but still can't wait to taste it. Thanks!

    Could these be made with substitute sugar? I am a diabetic.

  18. This recipe sounds amazing I will be making it. Just one question for the topping is it 2 Tbsp or 1/4C of butter. I don't want to use to much or to little. Thanks
