  • Caramel Slice

Golden Syrup provides the lovely fudgy caramel flavour in this slice, gooey with a crunchy base, simply delicious!

Recipe Rating: 4


1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup self raising flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
100g butter

30g butter
2 Tbsp Chelsea Golden Syrup
400g can sweetened condensed milk

130g cooking chocolate
30g butter


Preheat oven to 180°C. Put aluminium foil in a shallow 29cm x 21cm slice dish.

Base: Sift flours into a bowl, add coconut. Combine brown sugar and butter in a pan until sugar has dissolved. Add mixture to the flours and stir. Press into tin with back of spoon, bake for 10 mins or until brown.

Filling: Combine butter, Golden Syrup and condensed milk in a saucepan. Stir for 5 to 10 mins until mixture boils and browns (watch it doesn't burn on bottom). Smooth over the base and bake for 15-20 minutes until just starting to caramelise around the edges.

Topping: Combine chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl, stand over pan of boiling water until melted. Allow the filling to cool before spreading over the chocolate topping.

    Quite sweet, hard to eat. Didnt turn out as shown, use baking paper maybe instead of the foil? Bit too sweet and stodgy for our tastes.
