This is not really one for the kiddies, although the big lad does happily devour it, this recipe is more of a treat for the big kids. It's my Mum's recipe, so I thought it fitting to share at the moment. Plus, it's just downright delicious and who can go past some good old fashioned caramel slice?!
Chocolate Caramel Slice
1 cup plain flour
1/2 brown sugar
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
125g melted butter
1 395g can condensed milk
1/3 cup golden syrup
200g melted dark chocolate
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Pre-heat oven to 165 degrees Celsuis. Line a slice tin (about 18x28cm) with baking paper.
Combine flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl. Mix with a whisk to remove any sugar clumps. Add melted butter and stir (with a spoon) until combined. Press into tin and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.
Place condensed milk, butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth.
Pour over base and bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Cool.
Combine chocolate and oil in a jug or bowl and melt in microwave (in 30 second bursts to avoid burning). Pour over caramel and allow to set.
Cut into squares and enjoy!
