Conventional Method

  • Stir continuously for 10 minutes or until the caramel has thickened (make sure your heat is very low and you continue stirring until the sauce has obviously thickened).
  • Pour the caramel over the cooked base and return to the oven for a further 15-20 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and set aside until cool.
  • Melt the white chocolate and vegetable oil in the microwave on 50% power for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds with a dry metal spoon.

Notes

Recipes Notes & Tips
Ingredients Info
Golden syrup substitutes - if you can't get hold of golden syrup, you can replace it with corn syrup, honey or maple syrup (corn syrup will give you the most similar light and buttery flavour).
Mild vegetable or coconut oil - by adding just a little mild vegetable or coconut oil to the chocolate layer it makes the slice much easier to cut through without the chocolate cracking. It is optional but I find this is really helpful. See my tips for cutting slices perfectly.
Full fat sweetened condensed milk - should be used instead of skim or light, as this makes the slice set firmer, and you really do want a firm caramel filling for this slice.
Edible gold sugar dust - optional. I like to sprinkle this over the top of my chocolate layer while it's still melted to give the slice a pretty and sparkly look! You can buy this from the baking section of many major supermarkets or speciality cooking stores.
More Baking Tips
Tips for cutting slices perfectly - see full tips and tricks here. Take slice out of the fridge 30 minutes before cutting to allow the chocolate to soften slightly, or cut just prior to the chocolate layer setting. Use a small serrated knife to cut through the chocolate layer and then through the base. 
Storing & freezing - store in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the fridge) for up to 5 days. or wrap well and freeze for up to 1 month,
