Chocolate Caramel Slice

It’s Sunday today and after I’d finished all of my housework, laundry, folding, you know, the multitude of things a Mum does each day, I decided to make a Chocolate Caramel Slice.  I’ve made this once before and it was absolutely divine, especially when you’re craving for that sweet-little-something to tickle your tastebuds.  I originally found the recipe on taste.com.au as a featured recipe.

Ingredients

For the base you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of plain flour (sifted)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
  • 125gm butter, melted

For the filling you’ll need:

  • 400gm can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 60gm butter, melted

For the topping you’ll need:

  • 60gm copha, chopped
  • 125gm cooking chocolate, chopped

Method

  1. Preheat over to 180C/356F.  Grease and line with baking paper a 3cm deep, 28x18cm lamington/slice pan.
  2. Combine all of the base ingredients into a bowl and mix well.  Press the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden.  My oven runs hotter than normal so I took my base out at 15 minutes.  Let the base cool.
  3. Now for the filling….  Combine the condensed milk, syrup and butter in a saucepan over medium heat and whisk for around 8 minutes or until it’s golden in colour.  Pour over the cooked base and bake for a further 12 minutes or until firm.  Again, depending on your oven, check how the caramel is going as I took mine out after 10 minutes as it was ready and bubbling madly.  Cool completely and/or refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours or until set.
  4. Lastly, the topping….  Place the copha and chocolate into a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.  Stir until both ingredients are melted and pour over the caramel.  Then simply refrigerate to set the chocolate mixture which will probably only take half an hour.
  5. Cut into squares to serve and ENJOY!!

I hope others find this recipe as delicious as my family does.

And here’s a picture of taste.com.au’s finished product as my camera is out of action right now, but you get to see what the finished product should resemble *winks*
