This is my variation on a myriad of other chocolate caramel slice recipes I have seen over the years, with a fool-proof thick caramel layer and the addition of coconut for a little extra texture and flavor - although you can make it without. My Mum used to make something similar when I was growing up we fondly called 'goo cake' - my one has all of the 'goo' you could possibly want! —From The Kitchen
good quality dark cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups
sweetened condensed milk
caramel sweetened condensed milk
In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 180?C (350?F).
Line the base and sides of a 28 x 21cm (or similar) slice tin with baking paper.
In a big bowl beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract until pale and soft
Add cocoa, flour, baking powder and coconut, and mix well.
Press 3/4 of the mix into the tin and smooth firmly with the back of a tablespoon. Pop in the fridge while you prepare the rest.
Mix condensed milk, caramel, butter and golden syrup in a microwave proof bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate while you do the dishes!
Pour caramel mix over base and sprinkle over remaining base mixture.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until cooked through.
Cool, slice in tin, then hide it in the cupboard - don't say I didn't warn you!
