Caramel Slice


Afternoon Everyone!

Isn't it funny that sometimes the best tasting food isn't always the prettiest.  That is the case with this slice. It's sticky and it's hard to cut the chocolate without it cracking but oh my it tastes so good!  This slice has to be the most sickly sweet, straight to the thighs, I really should only have one piece but I can't help but have more kind of treat ever!

I originally found this recipe on Best Recipes and have made it countless times and it has never failed.

Base
1 cup flour
½ cup desiccated coconut
½ cup brown sugar
125g butter, melted

Caramel Filling
½ cup golden syrup
125g butter, melted
2 x 395g cans sweetened condensed milk

Chocolate Topping
185g chocolate
3 teaspoons vegetable oil

Base:
Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Combine flour, coconut, sugar and melted butter.
Press the mixture into a 20cm x 30cm tin lined with baking paper.
Bake for 15 to 20 mins or until golden brown.
Caramel Filling:
Combine syrup, butter and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan.  Stir over low heat for 7 minutes or until the caramel has thickened a little.
Pour over the base and bake for 20 mins or until the caramel is golden.
Refrigerate until cold.
Chocolate Topping:
Combine chocolate and vegetable oil in a glass bowl.  Melt over a saucepan of boiling water, making sure that the glass bowl doesn't touch the water. 
Spread the melted chocolate over the slice and refrigerate.
Slice and enjoy.

Now, don't forget to share...
