My gluten free, dairy free and vegan millionaire shortbread recipe has a buttery shortbread base, a sticky caramel centre and a chocolate topping. This recipe has taken me a long time to perfect, it turns out that getting the texture of dairy free caramel right is pretty hard, but I’m so happy with the final result.
To make my millionaire shortbread you will need a standard 20cm square baking tray, you can purchase one by clicking here. If you do make them I’d love to see, don’t forget to tag me in your photos over on social media.
Frequently asked questions
Which cream do you use for the caramel?
For this recipe I used the Alpro Single Soy cream however any single soy cream would work.
Which butter do you use for the shortbread?
For this recipe (and the majority of my baking) I use the Stork ‘perfect for baking’ 250g gold packet butter which is naturally dairy free. Note: This is the only Stork butter that doesn’t contain milk so be careful to pick up the right packet.
How long do they take to set?
My Millionaire Shortbread will take a minimum of 2 hours to set in the fridge.
How long do they last?
They will last for around 3 days in an airtight container, however are always best served on the day you make them.
How do I know if the caramel is ready?
The caramel will take around 15 minutes and will still be slightly runny. You can test it is ready by dropping a small amount into a bowl of cold water, if it forms a soft caramel ball when pushed together this means it is ready.

Looks delish! Definitely will try this sometime ☺️
Nice recipe. Being lactose intolerant myself I’m interested in giving this one a go. Specially the caramel! Thanks!
This looks amazing! I’m not the biggest fan of spending time in the kitchen but I’m tempted to try this.
I can’t eat soy ~ do you think coconut or almond cream would work? Looks amazing!!
I haven’t tried with any other cream but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work 🙂
What kind of GF flour do you use?
My favourite to use is the FREEE gluten free plain flour 🙂
Hi. Looks a fabulous recipe. Can you use coconut blossom sugar and maple syrup as alternative as I can’t have caster sugar or golden syrup.
Hi Karin, Thank you – As I haven’t tried either of these alternatives I wouldn’t like to say if they would work or not but if you do try then I’d love to know how you get on! x
This is a great recipe, I followed it exactly using the recommended ingredients and they are delicious! Can’t wait to try more of your gluten and dairy free recipes. Thanks Alice 🙂
My gluten free flower has xanthan gum in it, so I don’t need to use extra right?
Yes if your flour already contains xanthan gum you don’t need to worry about adding any more.
