Caramel Slice


For the base

  • 1 1/2 cups (180g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (110g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar


For the caramel layer

  • 1/2 cup (110g) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup or corn syrup
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk


For the chocolate topping

  • 7 ounces (200g) dark chocolate, chopped 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Optional toppings

  • Sea salt flakes
  • Shredded coconut



1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a square baking pan (approximately 8x8 inches or 20x20 cm) with parchment paper.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, melted butter, and brown sugar for the base. Mix until the ingredients are well combined and form a crumbly texture. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared baking pan.

3. Bake the base in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until it turns golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool.

4. In a saucepan, melt the butter for the caramel layer over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and golden syrup (or corn syrup) and stir until the sugar has dissolved.

5. Add the sweetened condensed milk to the saucepan and stir continuously over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes or until the mixture thickens and turns a caramel color.

6. Pour the caramel mixture over the cooled base, spreading it evenly. Allow it to cool and set completely.

7. In a heatproof bowl, melt the dark chocolate and vegetable oil together using a microwave or a double boiler. Stir until smooth.

8. Pour the melted chocolate over the cooled caramel layer, spreading it evenly. If desired, sprinkle sea salt flakes or shredded coconut on top for added flavor and texture.

9. Refrigerate the caramel slice for at least 2 hours or until the chocolate layer is firm.

10. Once set, remove the slice from the pan and cut it into squares or rectangles. Serve and enjoy!
