Millionaire Bars (No Bake) | Recipe

I’ve said it before – I’m not a great cook. Give me a recipe and I can make the basics. Give me a recipe and I can make something totally awesome, only if I’m not stressed about burning everything in the process. In the last few months, I’ve been adventurous and I’ve tried as many new things as I possibly can, because I believe that it’s incredibly important to cook everything and anything under the sun. Life is boring when you don’t do the things you’re afraid of. Then again, I’m not afraid of cooking, just the cooking being a disappointment.

The Millionaire Bars are quite popular and usually known as Millionaire Shortbread Bars. But given that shortbread isn’t that popular in India and it’s not easy to get your hands on it, I substituted the shortbread with regular Digestive biscuits because they are delicious and make a great base. Making the Caramel was a challenge because I had never done it before and despite finding a million and one recipes online on how to do it, I still made the caramel my own way and it turned out great! Melting chocolate is another hassle. You have to melt it just the right amount without burning it, but it has to be melted enough that it’s easy to spread. And once you add butter to the melted chocolate, and leave it unattended for even a minute, it stops being liquid and turns into a soft powdery substance. You can still use it, of course, but that’s obviously not what you’re aiming for.

So with all this in mind and untried and untested, I ventured into making Millionaire Bars and despite how much I panicked the whole time, it actually turned out pretty good.

Instructions
The base
  1. Break the biscuits in a blender or a hand blender bowl, add 7 tablespoons of butter and blend together till the biscuits are crumbled and sandy. Grease or butter a baking tray and then smooth this mixture into the tray. Chill for 30 minutes.
The caramel
  1. Pour the cup of brown sugar into a pan and once it starts to form clumps, add the butter and continue to stir till everything starts to melt. Then pour in the heavy cream and keep stirring till everything is mixed together and forms a thick brown liquid. Take the tray from the freezer and pour the caramel over it, then put the tray back in the freezer for another 30 minutes so the caramel hardens.
The chocolate
  1. Melt the bar of chocolate either on the stove or in a microwave at 30 second bursts. Add a spoon of butter into the chocolate and melt again, stirring the chocolate till it's nicely melted. Then add this mixture over the caramel layer and stick it back in the freezer till hard.
  2. When ready, cut into bars and serve!
