Millionaires Dessert Bars

Millionaires Dessert Bars

The other weekend Roy and I found ourselves all on our lonesome all weekend. We decided the kitchen won't see us at all, except when totally necessary !

We haven't been to a restaurant in ,,, oh, it must be years. Whilst waiting for our appetizers to arrive I looked through the dessert menu and my eye caught a Millionaires Dessert .. but, wow, the price for one was over the top, and secondly, we just about never have dessert at a restaurant. Seems our appetites are bigger at home, as here we will have an appetizer, dinner and dessert and would still be snacking later on.

Anyhow, the dessert of the restaurant looked really amazing and of course I, the foodie lover, read the whole description {and made notes on my phone!}. These Millionaires Dessert Bars are layers of pure delight, very much similar to the Millionaires Bars we see all over the web, but with an added layer of White Chocolate Mousse.

I have to be honest, mine does not look exactly the same as were pictured in the menu, but oh my, these bars are heavenly !

There is a layer of Shortbread crust, which was easy as I used store-bought biscuits {cookies} and I used my never-ever-fail Caramel recipe for the next layer.  I kept the Mousse top layer simple with only some Chocolate chips mixed in.  All this ended off with a drizzle of Dark Chocolate.

Everyone loved these Dessert Bars, but I now need to go back to the restaurant and taste the real thing, pricey or not !  Purely curiosity ...

Millionaires Dessert Bars

15 Servings


2 packets (200g each) Shortbread Biscuits, crushed   {I use Bakers Eet-Sum-Mor}
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, melted

1 can (397g) Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 TB Butter
1/3 cup Golden Syrup  {or Treacle}

1 cup Fresh Cream   {double cream/whipping cream}
2 TB Caster Sugar
160g White Chocolate, melted and cooled to room temperature
2 Egg Whites, beaten stiff
1/3 cup Chocolate Chips

1/4 cup Dark Chocolate, for drizzling


1.) Combine the crushed Biscuits and melted Butter - press into the bottom of a baking paper lined, 20 x 30cm pie dish - chill until needed.
2.) Place the Condensed Milk, Butter and Syrup in a medium saucepan - bring to the boil and turn down the heat to medium - cook, whilst stirring continuously, for about 5 minutes, until the mixture turns a light golden caramel color - remove from heat and let cool 10 - 15 minutes.
3.) Once the Caramel has cool, spoon over the Shortbread crust and return to the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
4.) Whip the Fresh Cream until stiff peaks form - add in the Caster Sugar - whisk another few seconds.
5.) Fold in the melted White Chocolate and the beaten Egg Whites to the whipped Cream - stir in the Chocolate Chips and spoon the Mousse over the Caramel layer.
6.) Drizzle with Dark Chocolate once the Mousse has set.

Slice into bars and serve. Keep leftovers in the refrigerator in a sealed container.

  1. These Millionaire Dessert Bars look heavenly! It's so much fun to try and recreate things from restaurant menus!

  2. Those do look delicious. We don't go out to eat very often either, but it is always fun to see what is on the menu when we do!

  3. We rarely eat dessert out too. Partly because of the cost - and partly because I'm convinced I can make it better at home most of the time! Ha! These bars look like they live up to their name ..... super rich and a real treat!

  4. Awesome bars, I never have room for dessert when we eat out so this would be perfect to make at home, plenty for everyone!! Pinned!!
