Layers of delight in these Millionaires DESSERT Bars - Shortbread, gooey Caramel and smooth, creamy White Chocolate Mousse {a restaurant copycat recipe!}

The other weekend hubby and I found ourselves all on our lonesome all weekend. We decided the kitchen would not 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 at 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 …

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!!

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!

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!
