Millionaires. Apparently, they are not just annoyingly rich people that we wish we could be, but are chocolate-coated caramel biscuits that we wish we could live on. Who knew?
I didn't know that I was missing anything until I came across these guys – and I don’t even know how I did. It was once of those sleep deprived, 3 AM, “oh my God, I don’t quite know what I am looking at or for, I wish I could sleep, WHATARETHOSEANDCAN3AMBETHENEWMIDNIGHTSNACKTIME?!” Internet searches. All I know is this: I woke up, I experimented, I cooked, I taste tested, I taste tested some more until there were none left and then I realized that if I couldn't be a millionaire, I could eat one. And that's kind of the same thing. #notreally #justrollwithit
Now, while I don’t personally advocate that we live on a diet of millionaires, I did manage to make these babies gluten and refined sugar free and vegan with one small tweak. So I mean, you can eat them without the guilt. And lick the plate clean without the embarrassment. I won’t judge.
If you are wondering what they taste like, the best I can give you is a cross between Caramel Slice and Caramel Crown biscuits. If you are still wondering, make them and thank me later.
- Rice Flour 150g (could also try substituting with GF All Purpose)
- Almond Meal (Lucky Nuts) 100g
- Margarine (or vegan partner, Nuttelex) 120g
- Unrefined Brown Sugar (Billington's) 50g
- Rice Malt Syrup 60g (Pure Harvest)
- Maple Syrup 30ml (Walden Farms)
- Peanut Butter 40g (Mayver's)
- Lactose Free Cream (Liddell's) 100ml
CHOC CARAMEL COATING
- Salted Caramel Koco Powder 30-40g
- Coconut Oil (unsolidified) 50-60g (Loving Earth or Love Organic)
- Line your baking tin and preheat oven to 200 degrees
- Melt margarine and combine all base ingredients in a mixing bowl
- Pour into lined tin and bake for approx half an hour
- Take out and let cool completely.
- Combine all Caramel ingredients in a saucepan and bring to boil. As it starts to bubble turn down heat and stir consistently until the mixture darkens and thickens. It should have evaporated a small amount - don't stress.
- Pour over the base and place in freezer to set for at least half an hour.
- Meanwhile, combine the coconut oil with Koco. Pour over the slice to coat - this will harden very quickly, much like "ice magic" topping. If you work quickly, you could also sprinkle in some extra dark chocolate, or chopped nuts.
- Keep in fridge when not devouring.
Enjoy! And remember to tag me if you recreate these gems! @natalieshaw_xo
