Terry’s Chocolate Orange Millionaire’s Shortbread – Zesty orange shortbread, topped with smooth caramel, and a thick layer of chocolate. All finished off with Terry’s Chocolate Orange segments. A new take on a classic treat!

One of the highlights of being back in the UK is the ready access to affordable, delicious chocolate. It is possible to get your hands on decent chocolate in Hong Kong, but the range is limited and to get the really good stuff you have to part with an obesely large amount of money.

I’ll have to watch myself very carefully, or I’ll be the size of the house in a matter of weeks, but honestly the chocolate aisle in Sainsbury’s is SUCH an exciting place for me right now! I love taking a good look at all the new chocolatey inventions that have sprung up while I’ve been away. Peanut Butter Kit Kat bites?! Yes please! Wispa bites? If you insist! Dairy Milk Oreo? Yum! And don’t even get me started on the range of chocolate spreads that exist now! I’m so excited for all the different bakes I can make with all this new (to me at least!) chocoaltey inspiration.

For today’s bake, however, I’ve gone back to an old classic. I hadn’t been able to find a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in Hong Kong recently, even at Christmas there didn’t seem to be any in the shops. Terry’s Chocolate Orange has to be one of my favourite chocolates, and the delicious combination of chocolate and orange lends itself to so many different bakes.

This time I’ve used them to put a new take on the classic treat, millionaire’s shortbread. The buttery, melt in the mouth shortbread is made with orange zest to compliment the orange chocolate. I’ve put an extra thick layer of milk and white chocolate on top, then finished it with segments of Terry’s Chocolate Orange. I really like the addition of orange to this recipe, it keeps the shortbread from becoming too sweet. I can’t get enough of the Terry’s Chocolate Orange either!

notes// 

  • I cut my shortbread into 12 generous squares. You can cut them smaller if you prefer.
  • I used milk and white chocolate on top of the shortbread, but you can use any type of chocolate you like.  I think a really dark chocolate would also work really well with the Terry’s Chocolate Orange sections.
  • Terry’s Chocolate Orange fans might also like to try my no bake Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cheesecake.
  • The chocolate layer is really thick because I like it that way! You can reduce the milk chocolate by half if you prefer a thinner layer.
  • The chocolate is very thick so can be hard to cut. Try warming your knife under hot water and drying it before slicing the squares.

Terry's Chocolate Orange Millionaire's Shortbread - A new take on a classic treat. Zesty orange shortbread, topped with caramel, and a thick layer of chocolate finished with Terry's Chocolate Orange.
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • ---- for the shortbread
  • 250g plain flour
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 175g butter
  • zest of 1 orange
  • ---- for the caramel
  • 1 x 375g tin condensed milk
  • 100g butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • ----- for the chocolate toppings
  • 400g milk chocolate
  • 100g white chocolate
  • 1 chocolate orange
  • a few sections mini chocolate orange segments
Method
  1. Start by making the shortbread layer. Preheat your oven to 180C / 160C fan / 350F. Grease and line a13 x 9 (33cm x 23cm) rectangular tin.
  2. Put the plain flour, caster sugar, butter and orange zest in a food processor and blitz together until the mixture starts to form a dough. You can also do this by hand by rubbing the butter into the flour and sugar, then gently kneading a couple of times into a dough.
  3. Press the dough into your prepared tin using your knuckles or the back of a spoon. Put into the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the shortbread is turning golden. Remove from the oven and cool completely in the tin.
  4. Once cool, make the caramel. Put the condense milk, butter and caster sugar into a saucepan, and gently heat, stirring continuously, until the sugar has melted. Continuing to stir, allow the caramel to bubble away until it has thickened. It might darken a little, but take care that it is not burning on the bottom of the pan. Pour the caramel over the cooled shortbread. Put in the fridge for about 30 minutes to cool.
  5. Melt the milk chocolate and pour over the caramel. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle evenly over the milk chocolate, then swirl together with a knife. Press Terry's Chocolate Orange segments all over the top of the chocolate. Put into the fridge to set completely, then cut into squares.

  1. Does the orange zest go in the shortbread mixture when everything else goes in?

    • Hi Emily,
      Yes, it goes in with all the other shortbread ingredients. Sorry I missed this out the recipe!
