“chokito” Chocolate Caramel Slice
- 57 g / 1/2 stick / 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 can / 200g / 7 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 100 g / 1/2 cup packed / 3.5oz dark brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons liquid glucose (or light corn syrup) (notes)
- 100 g white chocolate chopped
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 500 g milk chocolate
- 1 1/2 cup puffed rice
- Chop the white chocolate up finely. Line a square 8×8 inch baking pan with baking paper.
- Combine the sweetened condensed milk sugar glucose (or corn syrup) and butter in a heavy based saucepan. Stir without boiling until the sugar is dissolved.
- Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer and simmer while stirring for another 5-6 minutes until the mixture starts to come away from the side of the pan (when you stir you will clearly see the side or bottom of pan before the mixture covers it up again).
- Take the mixture off the heat and mix through the vanilla and white chocolate until fully melted and incorporated.
- Set aside while you prepare the top and bottom layers
- Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts until almost totally melted. Make sure to stir very well between each burst as this will reduce the risk of overheating the chocolate. This should take no longer than two minutes. Stir to finish melting the last few bits.
- Add the rice bubbles (rice krispies / puffed rice) into the milk chocolate and stir well. Tip half of the mix into the prepared tin and press it out to the edges with a spatula.
- Pour the still warm fudge over the top and tap the tin on the bench top to level it out.
- Gently dollop and press the remaining chocolate and rice bubble mix over the top and smooth out.
- Leave for 30 minutes to cool at room temperature then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
- Cut into squares and serve.
- I use a standard Australian 20ml tablespoon (4 teaspooons worldwide)
- To get nice clean cuts make sure the slice is cold first and heat your knife blade. You can do this by running hot water over the blade and then drying before you cut or use a kitchen blow torch for a few seconds to heat the blade (not too long). Rest the hot blade on the chocolate to start to melt a line then confidently cut through. Some pieces may crack but that s fine.
