Spiderweb Millionaire's Shortbread for Halloween


Spiderweb Millionaire's Shortbread for Halloween
I saw Ruth make these a few days ago over on her blog The Pink Whisk and thought they would be a good half term Halloween bake for a rainy day....and today has definitely been rainy....and windy!

Millionaires Shortbread used to be a favourite of mine when I was younger and if Mum was making them for a special event or bake sale she would cut off long strips in the baking tin and let my brother and I eat the offcuts...if she didn't get there first!

I used silicone cupcake cases as Ruth suggests as they keep their shape better. Once the chocolate layer has set, just peel off the silicone cases and store in a cool dry place.

For a more in depth photo tutorial on how to make these then please see Ruths blog. Below is the basic recipe and method.

Leave to set.Step 5: Melt the milk chocolate in a bowl in the microwave and then melt the white chocolate in a separate bowl and spoon into a piping bag with a fine nozzle.Step 6: Spoon the milk chocolate on top of the caramel layer then pipe three circles of white chocolate on each cake and use a cocktail stick to feather the chocolate to the edge - to make it look like spiderwebs.
