Orange & Caramel Millionaire Bites

This recipe is a twist on the classic millionaire shortbread we all know and love! The addition of the orange flavour makes these caramel bites a little festive and oh so indulgent.
The recipe is entirely vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar-free but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in anything. The orange & caramel bites are sweet, gooey, rich and utterly heavenly. Perfect to make for visiting family at Christmas or share amongst friends.
