Jammie Dodger Millionaire Shortbread

This Jammie Dodger Millionaire Shortbread is one of my absolute favourite recipes ever! It has a Raspberry flavoured Shortbread, homemade Caramel and is decorated with White Chocolate, Raspberry Jam swirls, and of course Jammie Dodgers.

I have been obsessed with Millionaire Shortbread recently and it seems you guys are too. From my Millionaire Blondies and my Mini Egg Millionaire Shortbread they have been super popular.

A lot of people struggle with Millionaire Shortbread as they think it is going to be super complicated but trust me it is completely the opposite. If this is your first-time making Millionaire Shortbread, then continue to read through the blurb for all my hints and tips on how to make this Jammy Dodger Millionaire Shortbread.

If you haven’t ever had a Jammie Dodger before they are basically two vanilla biscuits sandwiched together with Raspberry Jam. The top biscuit has a love heart cut out in the centre which exposes the jammy centre.

Before you Start Baking

Before you start baking line your square cake tin with baking parchment. When you do this ensure that the baking parchment covers the entire sides of the tin as you don’t want the caramel or chocolate to stick.

I used a spring form tin as I find it the easiest way to get the Millionaire Shortbread out at the end.

You also need to pre-heat your oven, to ensure that the shortbread bakes at the correct temperature.

Raspberry Shortbread

So, the main defining feature of a Jammie Dodger is the Raspberry Jam, so I had to add a Raspberry element to the shortbread. So, I decided in the shortbread I used Freeze-Dried Raspberries.

To make the shortbread is super easy mix together the flour, sugar and butter until it forms a dough. Next add in the freeze-dried raspberries and mix until they are evenly distributed.

I find the easiest way to put the shortbread dough into the tin is to break it into pieces and push them into the tin. You could also put the full dough ball into the cake tin and gently press it down with your hands of the back of a spoon.

Pop the shortbread into the oven until it is golden in colour.

Homemade Caramel

Once your shortbread has baked and cooled you can start making the caramel. If you haven’t made your own caramel before don’t worry. Just take it one step at a time.

Please, please, please make your own caramel. The caramel in this recipe sets, so when you cut it it holds its shape. If you use a pre-made caramel like Carnations it is too soft, it won’t hold its shape and when you cut it, it will just splodge out everywhere.

Jammie Dodger Rocky Road

To make the caramel add all the ingredients to a saucepan and heat on a low/medium heat until the butter has completely melted, and the sugar has dissolved.

For the caramel you need to use Unsalted Butter rather than a baking spread like Stork. I remove it from the fridge just before I put it in the saucepan so that it is still cold.

Once the butter has melted and the sugar dissolved turn the heat up and let the caramel boil for around 4-6 minutes. During this time, it will become a lot more golden in colour and a lot thicker too.

The one thing with the caramel is you need to constantly stir it. If not, it might end up catching and burning. Don’t worry if you end up with lumpy dark pieces of caramel, then these are the bits that have caught.

If your caramel is still grainy at the end, it it because you didn’t let the sugar dissolve enough. It is super important to do the first steps slowly to stop this from happening.

Once the caramel is ready pour it on top of your shortbread, and pop it into the fridge until it has set.

Chocolate Topping

Add your chocolate to a large bowl and melt in the microwave on 20 second bursts stirring in between until it is completely melted.

Add the Raspberry Jam to a separate bowl and mix to soften is slightly.

Pour the white chocolate over the top of the caramel and smooth. Add spoonful’s of the Raspberry Jam randomly on the top of the chocolate. Using a skewer gently swirl the jam into the buttercream.

Finish by adding some Jammie Dodgers. I also crushed up a Jammie Dodger and sprinkled over the top and some freeze-dried raspberries. Pop it back into the fridge until the chocolate has completely set.

Alternatives

You could make this using any of your favourite biscuits.

You don’t need to add the freeze-dried Raspberries to the shortbread this is completely optional.

    Wow. Millionaire shortbread is a must have whenever I get to the uk, (which has not happened in awhile…). Making them at home in the commonwealth (Canada) is the next best thing. Seriously, if you haven’t tried these, you must. Thanks for the recipe.
