Chocolate caramel slice

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Combine the flour, dessicated coconut, brown sugar and half the melted butter in a large bowl. 
  • Then line a slice tin with baking paper. Spoon in the mixture, pressing into the corners, and cook in the oven for about 15-18 mins until golden brown. 
  • At the same time, put the golden syrup and remaining butter with the condensed milk into a heavy-bottomed pot and stir over a low heat for 5-7 mins until combined and thickened, continually whisking. Set aside to cool. 
  • Then pour the cooled caramel over the biscuit base and set aside to cool, before placing in the refrigerator to cool completely. 
  • When ready, place the chocolate and oil in a bowl and cook in the microwave on high for 1 min. Stir and cook for another minute if needed to melt. Then pour this over the top of the slice, allow to cool a little and refrigerate for about 2 hours until firm.
  • Cut into slices and serve.
