Ingredients

  • Base:

  • 1

    cup self-rising flour

  • 1/2

    cup brown sugar

  • 1

    cup shredded coconut

  • 1/2

    cup (1 stick) butter, melted

  • 1/4

    tsp. cinnamon (optional)

  • pinch of salt

  • Caramel:

  • 1

    (14 oz. can) sweetened condensed milk

  • 2

    tbsp. Lyle's golden syrup (available by the sweeteners)

  • 1

    tbsp. butter

  • 1/2

    tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • Chocolate:

  • 16

    oz. dark chocolate

  • 1

    tsp. butter

  • 1-2

    tsp. coarse sea salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 360 deg. In a large bowl, combine the flour,brown sugar,coconut,butter,cinnamon (if using) and salt. Mix well on low, press onto an ungreased rectangular baking sheet (about 10 by 14; a 9 by 13 will also work, about 1/4 inch thick. Bake at 360 deg for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool a bit. For the caramel, combine the milk, golden syrup and butter in a small heavy saucepan. Heat over medium, stirring constantly, until big bubbles form and the mix is thickened and a light caramel color, about 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the vanilla (adding it at the beginning will make it much harder to tell when the milk turns a caramel color.) Pour and gently spread over the base. Return to the oven for 10 minutes. Then let cool. For the chocolate, melt the chocolate and butter using a double boiler or in a glass bowl placed over a pot of boiling water. Stir until melted. Pour and spread the chocolate over the cooled caramel. Sprinkle with the sea salt. Refrigerate until the chocolate has set, about 2 hours. Cut and serve or refrigerate the cut pieces in a cookie tin.
