Yum-o!! Looks so good!
I have to admit that I only bake shortbread at Christmas, would be a nice treat to have it this time of year :)


Oh my...I cannot wait to try this recipe. You tempted us with it aaaaages ago, but mentioning it in a post...and I have been waiting for the recipe ever since. I am definately going to make this tomorrow, assuming of course, I don't go into labour tonight!! Haha.

THANK YOU!! Hugs xx

Shelley in SC

This looks fabulous!! Can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing!


Oh yum!! This is already a family favourite, but I will certainly be trying out your recipe!

Nan K.

We make something similar in our high school cafeteria - only we substitute a peanut butter layer for your carmel layer. I will someday try yours!


Oh, I do love a recipe that TELLS you to lick the spatula AND the bowl!
Perfectly timed for the summer holidays, thank you!

Meagan S.



Lick the spatula, now lick the bowl (did J's Nana REALLY include that in the recipe?!).
Like the idea of smaller peices, might save eating a whole days worth of calories with one cup of tea!


Yickes! I must try this tonight~love condensed milk. Yummmmm.


Oh this sounds like the perfect scrummy yummy slice to make. Just have to find my kitchen first....!

Isabelle (France)

They look sooooo perfect!!! Well done!!! I've never tried to make this before, but I want to give it a go now!


haven't made this for years!! you've reminded me how much we all love it - but surely not 40 MINUTES to melt the choc???


oh my stars!! I think I just gained two inches in the hips from just looking at the pictures!! I am going to have try this!


OH! That looks lovely! Quick question, though...what's golden syrup? Is that anything like corn syrup?


All thoughts of dieting have been deleted from brain. Until after I have made this, sampled it, shared it, and sampled it some more. THEN I reckon all thoughts will have to return to serious dieting, lolol, I can already feel the pounds piling up on my hips.

Yum, yum Lucy!

I made something similar 'ages' ago but being the ever slap dash and hope for the best I used a tin of Nestle Caramel though making your own with the 'Jiggy Jiggy' does sound like a lotta fun!!

Sod the diet I'm making this at the weekend and noticing another one of your comments substituting peanut butter for caramel sounds just as delicious.

Have a good one,

Nina x

mmm, sounds soo yummy.
I buy some similar stuff from Trader Joes, but they are so expensive for god's sake.
The trick here is the golden syrup, it's difficult to find it here in the U.S., and if you happen to find it, it's expensive... :((((


oooh this is one of my all-time favourites but I'm yet to find a recipe that's "just right" so I may have to try yours out this weekend... just to find out you understand. Personally I couldn't bear to substitute caramel for peanut butter BUT how about mixing the peanut butter in with the caramel to make a nutty caramely layer of gorgeousness? Might try with one side normal caramel one side nutty... Natalie xxx


I have been thinking about shortbread the past few days, unsure why, but I just knew I had to make some... then I happened upon your blog today and realized that you had been tempting me with the idea for a few days now :) I don't have the ingredients to make your recipe, but you can rest assure it will be dipped in chocolate and served with hot tea for our guests tonight :)


Mmm.... very yummy Lucy ~ I can see a trip to the shops happening very soon just to buy the necessary caramel shortbread ingredients. Lovely photos as always ~ Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe :O)

Sue Hall

Brilliant recipe, one which I will be trying very soon, this is my Lovely Hubbys' favourite cake and it costs me a fortune from good old M & S usually.

Sue xx


Was wondering what to bake tomorrow and you have answered my question - and I have everything needed in the cupboard.


Looks amazingly delicious!

Can I come over? :-)


Oh my goodness! This is right up my alley...caramel and chocolate together with shortbread! YES!!! When the little Lulu leaves for the day...I am going to run to the store, buy the ingredients and start baking (and licking). Thanks, my dear Lucy, for sharing J's Nana's awesome recipe.
