Choc Star Van Trillionaire’s Shortbread
A decadent combination of 1.3cm of brownie, 1.5cm of thick caramel and 2mm of chocolate.
One thing about millionaire shortbread is that the cookie base means the caramel squishes out in a big gooey mess. I love them but this messiness means I don’t enjoy them as often as I would like to. That and I only like home made fresh ones.
The Choc Star Van trillionaire shortbread is delicious. The caramel is slightly grainy without the depth of flavour that using a sugar with a higher molasses content would bring but that might have been a bit too much. The brownie is slightly dry which helps it crumble when you bite in to it but it also seems to have a mouth-feel of desiccated coconut but does not have a coconut taste. This leaves a slightly grainy feeling in the mouth which regrettably detracted from the experience for me.
An almost perfect baked yummy, this was worth the diversion to the Choc Star Van.
