Makes 20 slices
420g gluten-free flour
240g soft brown sugar
150g shredded coconut
350g melted butter
880g condensed milk
300g golden syrup
440g dark chocolate (we use Whittakers)
1 Tbsp butter
To finish (optional)
flaky sea salt
Heat oven to 180degC.
Mix flour, sugar, coconut together. Add butter and combine together.
Spread mixture evenly in a lined and greased slice tin.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
Microwave ingredients until easily mixable, about 1-2 minutes.
Pour mixture evenly over the baked base.
Return to oven for 15 minutes, or until starting to bubble and lightly brown.
Remove and let cool.
Melt chocolate in the microwave or on the stove top in a bowl over a pot of hot water.
Once melted, add butter and mix well until glossy texture.
Pour over baked base and caramel.
Let cool, and harden.
We like to finish it with flaky sea salt and orange zest.
