Chocolate Caramel Slice



This would have to be one of my favourite cafĂ© slices... but for some strange reason I've never actually tried to make it myself.  I found this great recipe the other day - and after giving it a go was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out.

Chocolate Caramel Slice (makes 24)

Base
1½  cups flour
½  tsp baking powder
½  cup brown sugar
125g butter, melted

Filling
395g can sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp butter

Topping
200g cooking chocolate, broken into pieces
50g butter

Preheat the oven to 180°C.  Grease the base and sides of a 27cm x 18cm slice tin. 

Prepare the base. Combine flour, baking powder, and brown sugar in a medium bowl.  Stir in melted butter. Press the mixture into tin.  Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.

While the base is cooking, prepare the filling. Combine the condensed milk, golden syrup and butter in a small sauce pin. Cook over a low heat, stirring constantly, until boiling.  Continue to cook for 5 minutes.  Stir constantly.  Spread the filling mixture over the base, then return to oven for a further 10 minutes. Place on a rack to cool.

Prepare the topping.  Melt chocolate following packet instructions, stir in butter.  Stir while the chocolate and butter melt.  Spread chocolate over filling.  Chill until chocolate is set, then cut into bars or squares using a warm knife.

  5. hey - what's with everyone thinking I'm skinny!

    Having 5 other hungry mouths in the house does make the baking disappear real quick - you'll be sweet Jodi once baby number 4 comes along! ;)

  8. ok YUM!!!!!! I have to try and make it. It's such a Kiwi bit of baking and so can I admit I have never tried it? Even after being here for 15 years??? I guess I didn't grow up with it so have never been tempted but when I look at the ingredients I KNOW I will love it!

  12. Yum, I don't make it very often as I find it so fiddly, plus I end up eating too much of it. But when I do make it, I like adding coconut and rolled oats to the base.

  16. a bit of scared of making this...at least at a cafe I can limit myself to one. If I make a whole batch I will be in trouble...maybe I just need some self control! Thanks for sharing!
