I am a big fan of caramel and this chocolate caramel slice really hits the spot. It’s really very simple to make and just so good to have in your cupboard when the sweet craving comes around.
What you need

1 cup self raising flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup castor sugar
125g butter melted

1 tin condensed milk (400g)
20g butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup

125g milk chocolate
100ml cream

The process

Sift the flour into a bowl, add the coconut and castor sugar and mix to combine. Add the melted butter and mix thoroughly.

Take a baking tray (approx 20x30cm), lightly butter it and line with grease proof paper. press the mixture evenly onto the tray to form an even firm base.

Bake in a 180 Celsius oven for 10-15 minutes (when you see the base begin to brown it’s ready). Remove from the oven to cool.

Add the condensed milk, 20g butter and golden syrup to a pot over a low heat and gradually bring to the boil. (stir constantly) Allow the mixture to boil gently for about 5 minutes or until a rich dark caramel colour.

Pour the mixture over the base, spread evenly and then back in the oven for another 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.

In a pot on a medium heat, add the cream and when you see bubbles appearing around the edges, remove from the heat, add the chopped chocolate and stir until completely melted and smooth. Pour over the caramel, spread evenly and place in the fridge to cool.

Cut into little squares once cooled.

Simple and delicious.

    Just tried to make these. Didn’t work out that well. When I poured the caramel mixture over all of the base came up and kept sticking together. In the fridge now so will taste it later. Might still taste good.

    Hi Graham,
    Thanks so much for all the fantastic recipes, they go down a real treat.
    I would like to know if I can leave out the coconut from the recipe for the chocolate caramel slices and if so would I have to substitute it with extra flour or perhaps a cup of chopped peacn nuts.


    • Graham says:

      Hi Bev, you can leave out the coconut but don’t use flour, use something like finely chopped almonds, pecans would also be good but smash them us quite well. Have a lekker day G

  3. […] During the holidays, my kids often make things to sell to the neighbourhood and this one is a winner every time. For a little something extra and double the price, cover ithe fudge with a thin layer of chocolate like in the chocolate caramel slice. […]

    I would just like to share with you that I used this recipe as my desert for my dinner club that we have once a month. I chose a “finger” desert to try something different. After serving it, I waited and watched each person as they took a bite from their slice (there were 8 people). Every single one of them “ooohed” and “aaaahed” after their first bite and BEGGED me for the recipe! So thanks so much for this!! Can’t wait to try the next one!
