Words can not describe how tasty this slice is. I’m embarrassed to admit I have made it 3 times already in less than two weeks. Its what I call a lazy caramel slice. Its has all the taste of a caramel slice but so much easier and quicker. I’m not a bossy person but you must try this slice! Try some warm out of the oven or cold from the fridge. Either way it will knock your socks off! (Can you tell I love it?!). It is meant to be a soft almost melt in your mouth base and slightly gooey topping. It wont be a super firm and crunchy base and will not be firm like traditional caramel slice.

My mum made something very similar back when we were kids but the base was quite different. This is one of my favourite go to slice bases. Easy but tasty. So I have used it.

“Heavenly” and “Divine” are two words some of my partners work friends used to describe this slice. I’m told some people didn’t stop at one (or even two) pieces. That’s a hit in my books!

  2. Line a square 20cm x 20cm tin with baking paper.
  3. Place butter, sugar, coconut and flour into bowl.
  4. Blitz on speed 7 for 45-60 seconds until a dough like consistency is achieved.
  5. Press into the tin. Use the bottom of a glass or tmx measuring cup to smooth out and compress the base. Make sure you have compressed it really well.
  6. Sprinkle choc chips over the top.
  7. Drizzle of the condensed milk. Rustic is fine. It doesn't have to cover the whole base.

Notes
