Last Minute Christmas Treat: Toffee Millionaires

By Kelsey Banfield |

Toffee MillionairesAre you stressing for a last minute treat to bring to an event this week? Look no further. These fun toffee millionaires are absolutely delicious and can be pulled together in no time. Bake the shortbread, pour the melted toffee on top and, voila, a delicious dessert is ready. Everyone I know loves toffee and never protests when these arrive at a party with me. I like to package them in a pretty box or tin with some tissue paper for a gorgeous presentation.

Toffee Millionaires

loosely adapted from Martha Stewart

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pan

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt

3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar

1 cup finely chopped chocolate-covered toffee bars plus 1/2 cup coarsely chopped chocolate-covered toffee bars (about 10 ounces total)

1/4 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan. Whisk to combine flour and salt into a bowl, set aside.

In a separate bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture; mix just until combined. Press the dough into the prepared pan.

Pierce dough all over with a wooden skewer. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until golden brown and center is firm, about 70 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat finely chopped toffee bars and cream in a saucepan, stirring constantly, over medium-low heat until smooth. Pour over shortbread in pan; sprinkle with coarsely chopped toffee. Let cool slightly. Cut into squares and serve.
