I love these mugs being a northerner myself going "home" from London I always say I'm gong to the frozen north so when I saw these mugs and thought I have to get these.

Grim up north mug £15.95

Ay up me duck £15.95

Southern softie mug £15.95

So flick the kettle on and make yourself a brew in one of these.

Millionaires Shortbread

225g Plain flour
175g Butter
75g Caster sugar

100g Butter
397g can condensed milk
100g soft brown sugar
few drops of vanilla essence
150g chocolate

Place flour in a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs
Stir in the sugar
Knead into a smooth dough
Grease and put baking parchment in the base of a 28 x 18 x 3 cm tin then press the dough in the tin
Make sure the dough is even pushing it down with the back of a wooden spoon
Cook the base at 150c gas mark 3 for 25 minutes until it is golden brown
While the base is cooking start on the topping - put the butter , condensed milk and brown sugar into a pan and lightly heat until all the ingredients are melted together then boil for 5 minutes making sure you stir continuously
Add the vanilla essence and beat well
Pour evenly over the cooked base and leave to cool
Break the chocolate up into a heat proof bowl and melt over a pan of boiling water
Spraed the melted chocolate evenly over the topping and allow to fully set before taking out of the tin
Cut into squares and enjoy
