EASTER EGG MILLIONAIRE’S SHORTBREAD

Happy Easter! I hope you’re enjoying the time off, spending it in the sunshine and indulging in some divine Easter eggs!

Here, I have a recipe for you that uses very few ingredients and helps you make the most of that Easter chocolate you’ve either found or been left by the Easter bunny. WARNING: the results are somewhat scrambled, yet you’ll be wanting more. Enjoy!

Ingredients
SHORTBREAD
-150g plain flour
-50g caster sugar
-150g butter/margarine
-1 tsp vanilla extract
CARAMEL TOPPING
Carnation caramel tin
CHOCCY EGG TOPPING
-100g Cadbury mini eggs (or 3 mini 32g bags) OR use the equivalent weight of your favourite chocolate bar!
-150g milk and dark chocolate (I like to use more milk than dark, feel free to use some Easter egg chocolate here!)
-50 g white chocolate

Method
1 – Line a 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper
2 – Sift the flour and sugar into a bowl, followed by the butter and vanilla. Create breadcrumbs by either using your fingertips or by blitzing the ingredients together (I blitzed it a little more to form a slight, thick paste)
3 – Level it out in the tin and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes


4 – Preheat the oven to 180°c and bake it for about 22-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely

5 – Once the biscuity base has cooled, pour and evenly spread the caramel on top. Chill in the freezer for 30 minutes – it may not completely freeze, but aim for it to go firm so you struggle to press your finger down)

6 – After its time in the freezer, bash the mini eggs with a rolling pin between a teatowel, or in a blitzer to form smaller pieces. Melt the milk and dark chocolate in the microwave for 20 second blasts, stirring in between to avoid it burning.

7 – Mix about 2/3 of the broken eggs into the chocolate mix and pour over the caramel. Be quick to spread it as the coolness from the freezer will begin to chill the chocolate. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle this on top of the chocolate-egg mix

8 – Scatter the remaining broken egg on top for an eggs-tra touch and chill for at least 20 minutes before cutting and serving. I would highly recommend consuming with a spoon! Eggs-ellent!

HAPPY EASTER!
