Indulgent Caramel Millionaires Shortbread Slices with Ombar Chocolate (Vegan & Gluten free)

These delicious caramel slices might be one of the best desserts I’ve ever made, the simplicity of the recipe in no way means these decedent slices lack in flavour or texture. They’re ridiculously good.

All you need to do is layer the deliciously nutty almond base, then the gooiest date caramel and then rich dark chocolate – the result is incredibly delicious.

There was a real danger of me wolfing these down immediately so I chopped them up and popped them in the freezer. And the best bit, they can be eaten straight out of the freezer! Colder and more bite – but I LOVE that.

For the top rich chocolate layer I used my favorite Ombar raw chocolate – the 72% in my opinion is just perfect for desserts. Dark but not too bitter. I really hope you enjoy these!

To demonstrate just how easy this recipe is (just a matter of layering) I made a little video.

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.
