Grease a shallow rectangular baking tin.

Sift flour into a large bowl and rub in 100g of the butter.

Add the caster sugar and knead all ingredients together.

Press the mixture evenly into the tin and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Set aside to cool in the tin.

Put the remaining butter, sweetener, syrup and condensed milk into a heavy saucepan and stir over a gentle heat until sugar is dissolved.

Bring to boil and, stirring continuously, boil for 7 minutes.

Remove from the saucepan from the heat and pour the caramel onto the shortbread base. Allow to cool.

Break the chocolate into pieces, put into a heatproof bowl, and melt over a pan of gently simmering water.

When melted, drizzle the chocolate on top of the caramel.

Allow to set and cut into 16 fingers-shaped pieces.
