Chocolate caramel slice recipe

Chocolate caramel slice recipe
  • Meal Type

  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 140g butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar


  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 40g butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup


  • 1 block dark chocolate
  • 20g butter
  • White chocolate melts, optional

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 27cm x 18cm slice tin.
  2. In a large bowl combine the coconut, oats and flour.
  3. In a medium saucepan combine the golden syrup, butter and brown sugar and heat gently until melted. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well. Press into the tin and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden and puffed. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.
  4. For the caramel, heat the condensed milk, butter and golden syrup and bring to the boil, simmer, stirring constantly for 4-5 minutes, until thickened and a rich caramel colour. Pour over cooked base and bake for a further 8-10 minutes until golden around the edges. Cool completely before icing.
  5. To make the icing, simply melt the dark chocolate and butter in the microwave or over a double boiler until smooth and glossy. Spread over the slice and drizzle with melted white chocolate.
