How to make Millionaire’s caramel gingerbread?

First, I made gingerbread layer using my recipe for pierniczki -Polish gingerbread cookies. You can make gingerbread layer in advance if you want. You can even make it two weeks ahead and store it in a room temperature.

Next, I made the spiced caramel layer. This step is quite straightforward but it is important to remember few things. It will take around 20 minutes for the mixture to thicken and you have to stir it constantly, so it does not burn. It is also necessary to know that caramel should reach the so called ‘soft ball stage’ (115C) for it to set properly and get this nice chewy consistency. I would recommend using a sugar thermometer if possible.

The chocolate layer – this is an easy one. Just melt white chocolate and double cream over a water bath. I always add cream to chocolate for Millionaire’s bars as it makes the chocolate layer soft and easy to cut and bite.

When it comes to decorating, I love adding extra gingerbreads on top to make the bars pretty and thicker. Of course, you can decorate your bars any way you wish.

  3. Cut 1/3 of the dough and use it to make gingerbreads to add on top.

  5. Preheat your oven to 160°C (fan) and bake the gingerbread base for about 20 minutes. Bake the decorative gingerbreads for about 11 minutes.

Making caramel

  1. Add all the ingredients into a medium size pot and cook all the ingredients on the medium flame. Stir constantly making sure that you reach edges of the pot as well.

  2. It will take about 20 min for caramel to thicken. If you are using a sugar thermometer, you should be aiming for a soft ball stage of 115°C. Please be aware that caramel is VERY hot and under no condition you should taste it while it is hot! It needs a lot of time to cool down.

  3. When caramel is ready, let it cool in the pot and after about 30 min pour it over the gingerbread base. Spread with spatula if necessary. Let it cool in a room temperature and transfer to the fridge.

Making chocolate layer

  1. Add chopped chocolate and double cream into a heat-proof bowl.

  2. Place the bowl over a pot with boiling water and let chocolate melt.

  3. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir until you get a smooth mixture.

  4. When chocolate is ready, pour it over cooled caramel and spread all over. Add a couple of gingerbreads on top. Let it cool in room temperature and transfer the tin to the fridge for at least 5 hours or overnight.

  5. Cut Millionaire's gingerbread as you wish and store it in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week. You can also freeze it for up to 2 months.
