Millionaire Square Recipe

*** For a details story about why I started making these, got the recipe etc, see underneath the actual recipe itself (Please consider reading for some history on it!). My reason for this is because there is nothing I can’t stand more than looking up a recipe online only to have to scroll scroll scroll to the bottom to find it with a bunch of fluff on the top! Thank you!

Millionaire Squares

Bottom Layer:
– 2 cups flour
– 1/2 cup white sugar
– Pinch of Salt
– 1 Cup Butter (Or Margarine)

Mix together all 4 ingredients until it crumbles. Put in a 10×15 pan. Flatten to the bottom.
Bake at 325F for 25 minutes.

Middle/Caramel Layer:
– 1 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
– 1 Cup Butter (Or Margarine)
– 6 Tbsp Corn Syrup
– 1 Can of Condensed Milk

Heat and boil on low heat for 5 minutes. Pour over the bottoms. Cool in fridge to cold.

Top Layer:
– 300 Grams of Milk Chocolate

Melt and pour over the top.
Let chocolate slightly set and cut into squares before fully cold because if the chocolate becomes cold as you cut squares it will crack.

** If you want to sprinkle course or flaked salt on top of the chocolate that is a welcomed flavor profile also to cut the sweetness of the squares!

This has GOT to be one of my all time favorite recipes. For the longest time my Nanny would make them around the holidays and various times through the year and we had to restrain ourselves from eating an entire tray that was left out! This year moving back home I had asked my Nan to make me a tray of them. We brought her to the store and she made them. However she is obviously getting older and she slipped a recipe into the container so that way I could make them myself anymore. Maybe a not to subtle hint she was done making them for me. After making them myself they are pretty easy however they do take a bit of time. I cannot wait to share with her the squares that I made and hope they live up to her standard! If you are interested in more holiday recipes you are more than welcome to check out last year’s post all about them here too.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
