A simple no-bake millionaires traybake with a shortbread base, microwaved caramel and many chocolate on high! 

Millionaires shortbread 

So everyone knows how obsessed I’m with all issues millionaires shortbread proper?! I’m simply in love and that can by no means change. 

I’ve had many various kinds of ‘millionaires shortbread’ bakes on my weblog now, starting from my traditional millionaires shortbread to my malteser millionaires, and even my biscoff millionaires

While I like all of those recipes, I’ve had countless requests for a ‘no-bake’ model which is tremendous simple, and doesn’t use an oven… so right here it’s. A biscuit base with shortbread, a caramel made within the microwave, and chocolate! Simple! 

Biscuit Base

In order a millionaires shortbread often has a baked shortbread base, I assumed I might make it ‘no-bake’ by merely utilizing a fundamental biscuit base thought, and used shortbread biscuits and butter.

The concept is similar as a cheesecake base, however I needed to stay to utilizing shortbread biscuits in order that it was related sufficient – however you possibly can in fact use different biscuits in case you fancied it as a substitute! 

The ratio could seem barely completely different to my regular biscuit bases, however shortbread biscuits want loads much less butter than different biscuits as a result of they’re so buttery themselves. 


So for the caramel, although I might nonetheless rely utilizing the hob of an oven as ‘no-bake’, I assumed I might change it up barely and use the microwave technique. That is merely the identical recipe, however in a microwave… clearly. 

Now, in case you don’t have a microwave, you possibly can nonetheless make the caramel as per regular on my traditional millionaires shortbread recipe, however in case you fancied a change or a distinct method of doing issues… this works wonders. 

Plenty of individuals want the microwave technique as you don’t must boil something on a range, however beware, it may nonetheless get highly regarded. 

You add all of the elements to a LARGE bowl that microwaves nicely, and microwave the caramel in 1 minute intervals, stirring very nicely every time, till the caramel has darkened, thickened and is fudge like. Usually, this takes 10-Quarter-hour or longer.


The chocolate a part of this is similar as all the time – soften it nonetheless you usually soften chocolate and pour all around the set caramel. I used a mixture of white chocolate and darkish chocolate to jazz it up barely, however that is fully elective and as much as you. 

I discover it greatest to randomly pour two sweets with out a lot care, after which swirl with the tip of a cake tester to get a fairly sample – and it really works so nicely! However in fact, all of it tastes the identical irrespective of how swirled it’s. 

No-Bake goodies 

If me you know the way a lot I like a no-bake deal with, and that is 100% one among my favourites. Something simple to make and I’m there… all the time. 

Whether or not its a no-bake cheesecake similar to my chocolate orange cheesecake, and even my millionaires cheesecake in my first ebook… or a no-bake deal with similar to my Rolo rocky street. I AM OBSESSED. 

Suggestions and Methods 

In terms of the caramel you want your microwave on its highest setting, and as microwaves can differ, it could take much less or longer. 

I all the time discover utilizing this sq. tin the perfect for any traybake I make, because it makes the right depth for the bake. If you happen to change the tin, you danger it not setting fairly the identical. 

This bake will final for 7+ days, greatest within the fridge, or it may freeze for 3+ months.
