This slice consists of a shortbread base, firm caramel centre and a milk chocolate top. They are not at all hard to make.


Serves: 40 

  • Base
  • 150g butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups (150g) plain flour
  • Caramel Filling
  • 110g butter
  • 1/2 cup (110g) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1/2 cup (150g) sweetened condensed milk
  • Chocolate Topping
  • 1 1/4 cups (225g) milk chocolate chips

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Base: In a medium bowl, mix together butter, sugar and flour until evenly crumbly. Press into a 23cm square baking tin. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  3. Caramel Filling: In a saucepan combine butter, sugar, golden syrup and sweetened condensed milk. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon for about 3 minutes.
  5. Pour over baked crust (warm or cool). Cool until it begins to firm up.
  6. Chocolate Topping: Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute, then stir and continue to heat and stir at 20 second intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  7. Pour chocolate over the caramel layer and spread evenly to cover completely. Chill. Cut into squares. These need to be small because they are so rich.

Think I beat the butter a bit too much so base was a bit sticky putting it in the pan even so it turned out perfect little bit fiddly but that was my fault,was still ready within the time said and was tasty with the shortbread base:- - 15 May 2012


I had a caramel slice recipe but the caramel oozed everywhere and made a huge mess,the base was too hard and the chocolate top was too thick... this recipe, on the other hand, is the best i have come across. The caramel is perfect and my family loves it! I think next time I will halve the base and double the caramel... the base is too thick, the only thing wrong with it. Other than that, it is perfect!!! :D - 01 Jul 2015
