Why I Love This Recipe

This is tried and tested!! It's one of my English Mom's recipes.

Ingredients You'll Need

Shortbread Base:
1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine
1 1/4 C flour
1/4 C sugar

Toffee Filling:
1/2 C Eagle Brand condensed milk
1 stick butter or margarine
2 Tbps Lyles Golden Syrup or 2 Tbps Karo + 1/4 C sugar

1 C powdered sugar
1 Tbsp chocolate syrup
boiling water


Shortbread Base:

Rub butter and sugar together.

Add flour 1/2 C at a time and rub into butter sugar mixture.

Press into a small jelly roll pan or cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 10-15 mins. or until golden brown.

Toffee Filling:

Mix all ingredients together in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Boil for 10 mins. Remove from heat and beat 3-4 mins. Spread over baked shortbread. Let cool.


Frost with milk cooking chocolate (which according to Mom is not available in the US).


Mix powdered sugar with chocolate syrup and enough boiling water to make a stiff but spreadable frosting.

Frost. Let dry in frig.

Cut into bars.

Will keep well in a covered plastic container. (In the frig if it's hot out)
