Caramel Chocolate Slice

Postby zeedeveelgirl » Thu May 03, 2007 2:13 pm

Ingredients:

Base:
100g Highland Oatmeal Biscuits, crushed (you can use any biscuits you like, however these are the absolute lowest kJ bikkies you can buy, Weight Watchers/Paradise Lites Vive are close though!)
40g Butter, melted

Filling:
200g Skim Sweetened Condensed Milk
15g Butter
1 tbsp Golden Syrup

Topping:
80g Dark Chocolate, melted (I used Green & Black's Organic Dark Chocolate w/ Orange & Spices, this is low kJ compared to others but it's expensive!)

1. Line a lamington pan with baking paper

2. Mix crushed biscuits with melted butter, press mixture over base of prepared pan. Refrigerate while you're doing the next step.

3. Combine condensed milk, butter & golden syrup in a small heavy-based saucepan. Stir over heat, without boiling, for about 15 minutes or until mixture is thick and "caramely". NB make sure you put it on VERY low heat and you stir it continuously as soon as it's in the pan. I made the mistake of leaving it a few minutes and I burnt it!!!

4. Spread caramel filling on top of biscuit base, refrigerate while you do the next step.

5. Melt chocolate in the microwave, spread over filling.

6. Refrigerate until firm, doesn't take very long at all!

Serves: 12

Kj Content: 616kJ
(hrmm must have miscalculated before!)
Keep in mind though that nutritional values may vary if you use different biscuits, butter or chocolate!

It's deeeelish Ally :D It's so easy to make too, doesn't even require baking :D The only thing to watch out for as I mentioned is to continually stir the filling mixture as soon you put it in the saucepan!! I made a bit of a charred mess of mine :oops: :oops:

When ever I make a caramel slice for my hubby I always melt the chocolate, with a little bit of cream in the microwave.

That's why I am going to make it for mother's day, so when I go to sydney for a few days, everyone can eat them especially my hubby but that way I don't take them back home with me so that they are not in the house.

If anyone is interested, I was watching Better Homes & Gardens last night and saw an even EASIER recipe for this!! I made it even lower kJ as well :D

Ingredients
Base:
100g Highland Oatmeal biscuits, crushed
30g ETA Butter

Filling:
200g Skim Sweetened Condensed Milk

Topping:
60g Cadbury Lite Chocolate


Method

1. Melt butter, add to crushed biscuits and combine. Press into the bottom of a pan (obviously spray with cooking spray or line with baking paper)

2. Pour condensed milk on top of base, bake in the oven at 160 degrees Celcius for approx 30-35min.

3. Refrigerate until set (about 1/2 hour)

4. Melt chocolate and spread over the top. Refrigerate.

***TIP*** To cut into slices without the chocolate cracking, use a hot wet knife.

Serves: 12

kJ Value: 451.5kJ per slice (I am making this at the moment so once I have it finished and weighed I'll let you know all the nutritional values! :)

Enjoy! :D

Umm ok it seemed like a good idea at the time, but Lite chocolate does NOT melt properly!!!

Oh yes ............ I like the sound of this recipe thread :D :D

But I know I am a chocoholic and I also know I would never stop at one slice or even two so I will refrain from making this one even though it sounds devine. :)
