How To Make Chocolate Caramel Slice

Preheat oven to 180˚C (360F) or 160˚C (320F) fan-forced.

Grease and line a 20cm square cake pan with baking paper.

TO MAKE BASE 

Stir brown sugar, coconut, and flour together in a large bowl until well combined.

Add butter and mix until well combined.

Firmly press mixture into pan using the back of a spoon.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and slightly risen.

Set base aside to cool for about 20 minutes while making the caramel. Leave oven on.

TO MAKE CARAMEL LAYER

Place butter and golden syrup in a medium, heavy-based saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

When the butter has melted, add condensed milk.

Stir constantly over medium heat for about 9-12 minutes, until caramel thickens.

Gently spread the caramel evenly over the base.

Return to oven for a further 10-12 minutes.

A ½ cm of lightly browned caramel should form around the edges of the slice.

Allow slice to cool to room temperature.

CHOCOLATE TOPPING

Melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over very low heat, stirring constantly. Spread melted chocolate over caramel.

Refrigerate slice until chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.

Remove slice from pan and cut into pieces. Use a hot dry knife to cut the slice.

Store slice in an airtight container in the fridge.
