Made this yesterday, one of my go-to slices. I should have taken some photos when it looked perfect, I know. But the family were too quick and now it is nearly all gone …. well, it definitely will be gone as soon as I make a coffee!
This is my take on a recipe which I saw on Masterchef Australia probably about 4 years ago and have been making ever since. If you like salted caramel + chocolate + nutty, crumbly base – you are going to LOVE this!
Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 28cm x 18cm pan and line with paper extending on short sides to help remove slice.
- 150g self-raising flour
- 75g plain flour
- 100g macadamias, roasted & finely chopped
- 150g brown sugar
- 175g unsalted butter, melted
Mix flours, nuts and sugar together, add melted butter and press over base. Bake for 20 minutes and allow to cool whilst preparing the filling.
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup
- 55g brown sugar
- 30g unsalted butter
- 3 cans sweetened condensed milk
- 2 teaspoons salt flakes, plus 1 teaspoon extra
Stir golden syrup and sugar in saucepan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved Bring to a simmer and cook for a minute, remove from heat and quickly add the butter, condensed milk and salt. Return to stove and cook for 5 minutes until slightly thickened, stirring continuously. Do not allow the mixture to boil. Pour over base and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.
- 250g chocolate, chopped
- 50g unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup water
Place all ingredients into a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, and stir until the chocolate has melted and ingredients are combined.
Pour over caramel, sprinkle with extra salt flakes and refrigerate until set. Remove from pan and cut into slices. Makes approximately 24.
