Caramel and chocolate… Enough said.

Ingredients

To make this yummy slice you will need…

  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1/2 cup (110g) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (40g) desiccated coconut
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 100g butter, extra
  • 800g sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup (80g) golden syrup
  • 200g milk or dark chocolate, melted

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line an 18cm by 28cm slice pan.

Place the flour, coconut and sugar into a bowl and stir to combine. Add melted butter and mix well. Press mixture firmly into the pan. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool.

Place the extra butter, condensed milk and golden syrup into a medium saucepan. Stir over a low heat until combine and smooth. Pour over cooled base and bake for a further 15 – 20 minutes until golden.

Pour the melted chocolate evenly over slice and smooth with a spatula. Allow slice to cool and the chocolate to set.

Cut into whatever sized portions you desire with a warm sharp knife.

  1. How do you do this without the Coconut? Can you just leave it out, or should it be substituted for something else? This looks like another weekend project for me – the Insanely Chocolatey Brownies went down a treat a few weeks ago, so here’s hoping this will (Providing I can lose the Coconut ;))

    • Hiya! You could try the below variation to the base if almonds are suitable…
      1 cup (150g) plain (all-purpose) flour
      ½ cup (60g) almond meal (ground almonds)
      125g butter, melted
      ¾ cup (165g) caster (superfine) sugar
      Same process – place the flour, almond meal and sugar into a bowl and stir to combine. Add melted butter and mix well. Press mixture firmly into the pan. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes at 180°C until lightly browned.

  2. hey- how do you translate all that into minnesotan? i wouldn’t know a celsius if it hit me in the face.

      350F I think.

      A quick tip: If you just type units you want to convert straight into Google, it will come up with the answer directly. e.g. Try googling “800g in oz”.

        There are also temperature conversion sites. They can be quite helpful, especially if you don’t want to mess with the two absolute units (R/K) or the F/C equation. (you should try engineering classes in the US…we had to learn US, Imperial (seriously, Slugs? is that unit still in use?) and metric.
