There is not much to say about my second Great British Bake Off inspired creation as it pretty much speaks for itself. Millionaire’s Shortbread is pretty much a classic and as much as I love it I decided to tinker with it a tiny bit. Tablespoon of peanut butter here and there, sprinkling of some salted peanuts, et voilà, Salted Peanuts & Peanut Butter Millionaire’s Shortbread!
I decided to be really careful with peanut butter cause as much as I love it, I still wanted to keep the essence of the caramel flavour itself. I think my attempt worked really well and you get enough salty deliciousness from peanut butter and peanuts but also some lovely caramel sweetness. Not to mention hint of vanilla coming through from the shortbread as I used my favourite of late, vanilla sugar. I’ve written about Vanilla Sugar How-To! here
I must admit I have cheated a bit with my caramel and went for the version that uses condensed milk but I do prefer it like that. Do not expect to achieve the same colour as you would if you were to make it the traditional way. When it comes to doneness look for thickening consistency and not the colour to guide you.
As a final touch I decided to add a handful of salted peanuts sprinkled over the caramel for a bit of unexpected crunch! And…bit more peanut butter to the chocolate topping itself to create pretty swirls I was quite happy with (little things). 😉
Finally, onto the recipe itself!
