Salted Caramel Chocolate Peanut Slice Gluten Free

November 14, 2015

Author Notes: Caramel + Chocolate + Nuts = Triple Threat. No wonder this is my most requested recipe. This slice literally flies off the platter at every party. Occasionally I cut the squares smaller so there is more to go around but that doesn’t seem to make a difference because guests just come back for seconds…. and thirds. The sight of a few measly crumbs remaining on your platter at the end of the party will fill you with pride.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180c. 2. Combine butter, coconut, flour and sugar in a bowl and stir well. Press into a 20cm square or rectangular baking tin lined with baking paper. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. 3. Combine condensed milk, butter, golden syrup and sea salt in a saucepan and stir over low heat for 3 minutes until caramel thickens slightly. 4. Place the peanuts on top of base in a single layer.
