1cup flour (130g)
1/3 cup icing sugar (40g)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (3g)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (120g)
1 can of condensed milk (300ml)
3/4 cup unsalted butter (180g)
3/4 cup brown sugar (165g)
3 tablespoons golden syrup e.g. Lyle’s (45g)
1 teaspoon vanilla (5g)
1/4 teaspoon salt (1g)
1 cup good quality semi-sweet chocolate – 180g
1/4 cup heavy /whipping cream – 60g
“Spider web” design (optional)
1/3 cup white chocolate – 60g
Instructions Preheat oven to 350º F (170º C)
Make the Shortbread
Mix all the shortbread ingredients together until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Divide evenly into the 12 baking cups and press down.
Lightly prick with a fork and bake for about 15 minutes @ 350 or until lightly browned on the edges. Set aside to cool.
Make the Caramel
Put the condensed milk, butter, brown sugar, golden syrup, vanilla extract and salt in a heavy bottomed pan and heat to bubbling, then simmer, stirring constantly, until thick and golden brown in color (about 15 minutes)
Pour caramel evenly over cooled shortbread, and set aside to set or refrigerate for about 1 hour.
Prepare chocolate layer
When the caramel has set, melt the chocolate and heavy cream in the microwave in 30-second increments until chocolate melts and a smooth sauce is formed when stirred. Spread it evenly over the top of each caramel layer.
Refrigerate to cool completely so it can set.
“Spider-web” Layer While the semi-sweet chocolate is still wet, microwave white chocolate for about 30 seconds and stir until smooth. Place in a small piping bag and snip a small piece off the end. Pipe 3 circles of white chocolate over the dark layer. Then using a wooden skewer or toothpick, drag it from the middle of the chocolate out towards the edge and repeat around the top to form the spider web.
