Preparation steps

Cream 225 g/2 cups butter with 100 g/1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy (beat in the egg, if using). Sieve the flour over and knead to a pliable dough. Press the mixture into a 23 x 28 cm/9 x 11 inch cookie sheet and smooth the top. Bake at 180°C/350°F for 20 minutes. For the topping, warm the rest of the butter, add the sugar and allow to caramelize. Then add the condensed milk, stir in the honey (or corn syrup), bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes (or longer if necessary), until the mixture is thick and caramelized. Add a little more sugar if necessary. Pour over the shortbread base and let cool. Melt the couverture chocolate with the clarified butter over a bain-marie, pour over the caramel and let cool. Melt the white chocolate over a bain-marie, then put into a small paper bag, snip off one corner and decorate the cake with drizzles of white chocolate. Cut into squares before serving.
