Chocolate Caramel Shortbread

Chocolate Caramel ShortbreadA real creamy caramel on light, crisp shortbread topped with thick swirls of chocolate.


7 tbsp vegan butter, softened

¼ cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup brown rice flour

¾ cup corn flour

For the Caramel:

7 tbsp vegan butter

¼ light brown sugar

13-ounce vegan cream

For the topping

3 ½ ounces gluten-free dairy free white chocolate

3 ½ ounces gluten-free dairy-free dark sweet chocolate


1.Preheat the oven to 400°f. Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat together in a large bowl until light and fluffy, then stir in the flours until well combined. Press the shortbread into an 11 x7- inch baking pan, then place in the Preheated oven for 10-12 minuets, until golden.

2. Meanwhile, place the Caramel ingredients in a heavy- based saucepan and heat over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved, then cooked for 5 minutes, stirring continuously. Remove from the heat and let cool a little, then pour the Caramel over the shortbread base and let cool.

3. Place the white and dark chocolate in separate heatproof bowls over saucepans of simmering water and melt. When the Caramel is firm, spoon alternate spoonfuls of white and dark chocolates over the Caramel, tap the pan on the work surface so that the different chocolate join, then use a knife to make swirls in the chocolate. Refrigerate until set, then cut into 15 squares.

For the Caramel it was meant to be condensed milk, which would be dairy, so I tried to work with my soya cream. After refrigeration even though I add other ingredients to thickened my sauce still needed extra work. It came out ok but a bit soft for cutting into squares.. need to re-do this recipe 😉

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
