Caramel Crunchy Slice

This square is delicious and very quick and easy to make. Like my other post, this is not your typical caramel slice. It is uncooked (so easy!) and does not use biscuits in the base, but a combination of cornflakes and coconut. Mmmm, salivating already.

I recently worked out that this recipe came from one of those collaborative community cookbooks where well-known people nominate their favourite recipe. This one came from the mayor of Palmerston North, at the time it was published.

Caramel Crunchy Square

For the base:

  • 250 grams of Kremelta
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1 cup of coconut
  • 3 cups of cornflakes
  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • Vanilla

For the caramel:

  • ½ a cup of brown sugar
  • ½ a can of condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of golden syrup

Mix all the dry ingredients together and mix well, add the melted Kremelta. Mix until well combined. Grease and line a square baking tin and press half the mixture into the bottom. Press down with a glass until very compact. Put the tin into the fridge to set.

Meanwhile melt together all ingredients to make the caramel. Cook and stir gently for 4-5 minutes. Pour over the set mixture and then cover with other half of the base mixture. Chill slice and cut into squares when set.
