MckLinky Blog Hop - Favorite Food w/Recipe

A Favorite Aussie Dessert - {Caramel Slice}
1/2 c. plain flour
1/2 c. self-rising flour
1 c. desiccated coconut
1/2 c. soft brown sugar
100 g. butter

Filling:
30 g. butter
2 tbs. golden syrup
400 g. can condensed milk

Topping:
125 g. dark chocolate, chopped
30 g. butter

Preheat oven to 180C. Line base and sides of a shallow 28 x 18 cm tin with aluminium foil.

Sift flours into a medium mixing bowl; add coconut and make a well in the centre. Combine sugar and butter in a small pan and stir over a medium heat until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved.

Add butter mixture to flours and stir until well combined. Press over base of prepared tin, using the back of a spoon. Bake for 10 minutes; leave to cool.

To make filling, combine butter, syrup and condensed milk in a small pan. Stir constantly over a low heat for about 10 minutes until mixture boils and lightly browns. Pour over pastry base and bake for 20 minutes. Set aside until completely cold.

To make topping, combine chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl. Stand bowl over a pan of simmering water until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Spread over caramel filling. Leave to set. Using foil, lift slice from tin; cut into squares or fingers to serve.

Note: store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Thanks for commenting on my crockpot recipe. I've found that if you take a crockpot recipe that needs a slow cook (8-9 hours), I will be it in the oven at 200 for about the same amount of time. Typically the "low" on a crockpot is equivialent to 200 in the oven and the "high" is considered 300. Hope that helps! I love this recipe you posted, can't wait to try it.

Hey thanks for commenting on my banana bread recipe. If my bananas need ripened then I put them in a paper bag with an apple. They will be ripe in no time. I haven't tried the freezer thing. Great blog!
