I have made this a couple of times now using gluten free flour, far too delicious. Worked perfectly.

This is a bulbous, but I would use equal parts self raising flour to plain flour. The recipes are hard to understand on the site as this one says, Put caramel ingredients in the pan but does not tell you which ingredients they are. Might be an idea to break the ingredients down in the list so we can all work out which ingredients are for which part. Other than that, perfect results every time.

Am going to make these for a party but would like to know if you can freeze them as well please?

Dear Helen. We haven’t frozen these but we think they should be fine. Happy baking! All the best from Doves Farm

I found that instead of using 250g of plain white flour, I used 150g of plain white flour and 100g of white sef raising flour. This stopped the base from crumbling so easily.

Lovely caramel and taste but shortbread disintegrated. Any advice please.

Traditionally millionaire's shortbread has a short, crumbly biscuit base. Make sure you press the dough down in to the tin before baking and topping with the caramel and chocolate.

Another big hit with the family. The caramel in this recipe is amazing. The only thing that stops me making it all the time is the calories!! Would recommend
