My favourite! I have made this easy caramel slice recipe a couple of times, and have tweaked the original version to make it even better (lush, rich, and just right!).
I will definately be making this on the weekend when the girls come over for afternoon tea.
Easy Chocolate Caramel Slice Recipe Ingredients
- 2/3 cup self raising flour
- 2/3 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
- 80 g butter
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk*
- 2 tblspns butter
- 2 tblspns golden syrup
- 100g dark chocolate & 50g milk chocolate (I use lindt)
Easy Chocolate Caramel Slice Recipe Base Method
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Combine the self raising flour, coconut and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Melt the 80g of butter, pour into the bowl and mix well to combine with the other ingredients.
Grease a lamington pan (15cm x 25cm x 4cm deep) and line with baking paper. Fill pan with the base mixture and press down firmly and evenly using a glass.
Place in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until the base has risen and browned slightly.
Easy Chocolate Caramel Slice Recipe Filling Method
While the base is cooking, make the filling. Combine the sweetened condensed milk, golden syrup and additional butter in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over a medium heat and then stir constantly for 5-10 minutes until the mixture thickens.
Allow to cool for a few moments. Once the base is cooked, remove for the oven and evenly spread the filling over. Return to the oven for 5-10 minutes until the sides have started to bubble. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Easy Chocolate Caramel Slice Recipe Topping Method
Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a microwave proof bowl. Microwave on medium low heat for 30 seconds at a time (stirring after each zap) until chocolate has melted. Spread evenly over filling.
Allow to cool completely, then place in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up. Remove from the fridge and cut into squares.
