Loveheart Millionnaires Shortbreads Recipe

Make your loved one a sweet treat this February 14th with these heart shaped Millionaires shortbread - crumbly biscuit sandwiched with caramel and drizzled with dark and white chocolate.

Makes 18 biscuits

Preparation time: minutes

Cooking time: minutes


125g (4½oz) butter, softened

55g (2oz) caster sugar

½tsp vanilla extract

140g (5oz) plain flour

Half a 397g can Carnation Caramel

55g (2oz) dark chocolate

55g (2oz) Nestlé Milkybar


1. Preheat oven to 170°C, (150°C for fan ovens), Gas mark 4.

2. Cream butter and sugar with the vanilla until pale and fluffy. Add the flour and mix well. Chill the dough for 10 minutes.

3. Roll out on a floured surface to 3mm thickness and cut out biscuits using a 3cm heart shaped cookie cutter (it should make 36 hearts, if you keep rolling and cutting).

4. Transfer to parchment lined baking sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes.

5. Leave to cool.

6. To serve, spread some of the caramel onto half the biscuits and sandwich back together with the remaining biscuits. Melt the chocolate in separate bowls. Drizzle the chocolate over the biscuits and leave to set.

7. Enjoy with tea or coffee or pop one in your valentines’ lunchbox for a special treat!


You can freeze the dough if you don’t want to bake it all at once. Wrap tightly in a double layer of cling film – it will keep for about a month.
