IMG_6158 - resized (3)

I love this recipe as it is so tasty. A big thank you to my Nanna for sharing her recipe. I’ve enjoyed Caramel Crunch for as long as I can remember and always looked forward to visiting Nanna and Pop so I could sample my favourite version of the ‘caramel slice’. I have finally perfected it with a few mentoring sessions along the way. Thanks, Nanna! I obviously didn’t inherit your baking skills!

Makes 12 serves.



  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup coconut desiccated
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup margarine
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence


  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 2 tbs golden syrup
  • 1 tbs margarine


  • 1 x 200g chocolate (dark/milk chocolate)
  • A little copha – Helps to increase mouthful and setting in warm climates



  1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C.
  2. Place dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Melt margarine, pour over dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Press mixture into slice tin (thanks for my slice tin Nanna!)
  5. Cook for 15-20 mins.
  6. Cool base a little.


  1. Add all filling ingredients into a saucepan.
  2. Heat very slowly just enough for the margarine to melt.
  3. Add filling to the slightly cooled base.


  1. Combine cooking chocolate with a little copha in a metal bowl.
  2. Place on top of a saucepan with hot water and melt chocolate and copha together stirring throughout.
  3. Pour over cooled cooked base/filling.
  4. Place into the fridge to set.
  5. Cut into portions.
