Cook Time
1 hr
Servings: 24 squares
Slice Base
  • ¾ cup gluten free plain flour
  • ¾ cup gluten free self-raising flour
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • 200 g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
Salted Caramel Filling
  • 1 can (395g) condensed milk
  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup
  • cup brown sugar
  • 75 g unsalted butter
  • teaspoons sea salt flakes
Chocolate Topping
  • 375 g dark chocolate melts
  • 40 g copha (vegetable shortening)
  • sea salt flakes to decorate
Slice Base
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C fan forced and line the sides and bottom of a slice/brownie sized baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Combine coconut, flours and caster sugar in a stand mixer or food processor until just combined. Then add the butter while mixing on low speed until the dough just forms a ball.
  3. Remove the dough from the mixer/food processor and spreading evenly press the dough into the base of the baking tray, before baking for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool whilst you make the caramel filling.
Salted Caramel Filling
  1. Place all the ingredients except the sea salt into a medium sized saucepan and cook over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly to ensure the mixture does not burn.
  2. Then remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sea salt before pouring the filling over the slice base.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside to cool in the pan. Don't be alarmed the caramel filling will look caramelised or slightly burnt on the top, once removed from the oven.
Chocolate Topping
  1. Place the chocolate and copha in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 1 minute, then remove from the microwave to stir before heating for a further 45 seconds until completely melted.
  2. Stir chocolate and copra mixture until smooth and glossy before pouring over the slice and refrigerating until the chocolate has set.
  3. Once the slice has set, remove from the pan and cut up into squares and sprinkle a dash of sea salt flakes on the top prior to serving.
