Chocolate Caramel Slice


This is an oldie but a goodie.

I don’t know if this is a popular slice in other parts of the world but here in Australia it is a long time favourite of children and adults alike.

Over the years I have made this slice I have discovered the secret is not to over cook it. Which means to watch it in the oven, and follow my instinct over the recipe.

Over cooking makes the caramel chewy and the base too hard.

Caramel Chocolate Slice Recipe

Ingredients:

BASE

1 cup SR flour

1 cup coconut

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

125g melted butter

FILLING

400g can sweetened condensed milk

30g butter

2 tbsp golden syrup

TOPPING

125g dark chocolate

30g butter

OVEN 180C

Method:

Lightly grease a slice pan

Mix all the BASE ingredients together and press into the pan.

Bake for 15 minutes

Put all the FILLING ingredients into a small pot and stir over low heat for ten minutes, or until golden brown

Pour the hot filling over the base and put back in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

Watch it carefully and when it starts to bubble and brown, take it out.

Put the TOPPING ingredients into a bowl and microwave on low for a minute at a time until chocolate melted.

Pour chocolate mixture over the caramel slice and refrigerate.

Take it out of the fridge before it cools too much, and cut into squares.

And then eat, eat, eat till you make yourself sick.

  1. I love that recipe for the base. I have been using an old Women’s Weekly recipe from the 70s and the base was crushed biscuit and butter. Yours is obviously far superior, so I am updating my recipe book.

    • Hey, thanks for your comment. This base is really nice, and really easy to make, so I think you’ll like it. Just remember not to over cook it first time round, or it’ll get too hard if overdone!

  2. Im in Albuquerque, NM (Google it!) and Ive never heard of them but they look delicious! Thanks for the post! 😉 yum!
