I was thinking about end-of-term gifts for teachers recently and wondering what to make/buy when I came across this recipe on the side of a tin of condensed milk (!) and so this is what the teachers got presented in little cellophane bags! It is so simple and does not involve any cooking, but beware, it is ever so sweet so a small piece goes a long way!
This recipe makes 16 large pieces (but I'd cut it up smaller if I were you )
200g shortbread biscuits, crushed
25g butter, melted
150g dark brown soft sugar
397g condensed milk
200g milk chocolate, melted
1. Line a 20cm square brownie tin with baking/greaseproof paper
2. Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter and then press the mixture into the tin to make an even layer. Chill for 20 minutes.
3. Place the butter and sugar into a non-stick pan and stir over a medium heat until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. To make a golden caramel, add the condensed milk, stirring continuously, until the first bubbles appear on the surface. Remove from the heat as soon as it comes to the boil.
4. Spread the caramel evenly over the biscuit base and then cool and chill for about half an hour. Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel, smoothing to the edges.
5. When the chocolate has hardened a little, cut into squares.
