chocolate caramel slice
melted butter, to grease
125g butter, at room temperature
80g (1/3 cup) caster sugar
190g (1 1/4 cups) plain flour
395g sweetened condensed milk
2 tbs golden syrup
60g butter, extra
150g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
preheat oven to 160 degrees C. brush a square 20cm (base measurement) cake pan with the melted butter to lightly grease. line the base and 2 opposite side with non- stick baking paper, allowing the paper to overhang the sides.
use an electric beater to beat the butter and sugar in a medium bowl until pale and creamy. add the flour and beat until just combined. use your hands to bring the mixture together to form a ball. turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. use the back of metal spoon to gently press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.
bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. remove from the oven and set aside for 15 minutes to cool
