Double Choc Caramel Slice

I took the kids to the corner shop to get some lollies for a treat on the weekend.  We found this little piece of caramel slice selling at the counter for only 50c.  I hadn't made caramel slice for a long time because I could get quite addicted to it.  I had all the ingredients at home so I went home and started cooking straight away.  My son took two slices to school the next day and his friends were willing to pay $2 for a slice.  He shared a little bit with his good friend and ate the rest all by himself while the rest of his friends are dribbling at it.  

Double Choc Caramel Slice

3/4 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup plain flour
2/3 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
125g butter, melted

For the filling:
395g sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons golden syrup
30g butter

For the topping:
100g dark cooking chocolate
100g milk cooking chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 180c.  Line a 18cm x 28cm lamington pan with baking paper.
  2. Combine the first 5 ingredients, mix well.  Press into pan and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Combine condensed milk, golden syrup and butter in pan.  Stir over medium heat until boiling, reduce heat and stir constantly until it changes colour.  (Do not worry if there are some burn bits, that doesn't show once baked.) Spread the caramel over base, bake further 10 minutes.  Let cool.
  4. Melt the dark and milk chocolate in a microwave safed bowl with medium heat for 30 seconds, and further 20 seconds until the chocolate melted.  Spread it over the caramel and put the slab of slice into the fridge before cutting into small pieces.
