Vegan Caramel Slice! I made this to look like a Twix bar but you could cut into small squares instead. The one thing I really miss being vegan is caramel slice, it’s one of my favourite treats. Now I have a vegan version and it is so good. You could never tell that this is vegan. It’s sweet, delicious, caramel, chocolatey goodness. This coconut condensed milk holds the key to this! I found this in Woolworths in South Melbourne while looking for coconut cream for a vegetable curry…

Vegan Caramel Slice
Makes 24 bars / 48 small squares
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
100g melted vegan butter
1 x tin of coconut condensed milk
1/3 cup golden syrup
200g dark chocolate
1 tablespoon vegetable or sunflower oil
What do I do now?
For the base – mix together the ingredients with the melted vegan butter. Press into a brownie tin and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes on 180 degrees celsius until golden. Remove from the oven and cool.
For the caramel layer put all ingredients into a small pot and melt together. Set aside to cool and then pour over the base and back into the oven for 15 minutes (the filling should “set” in the oven). Once set remove and cool.
For the top layer simply melt the chocolate in a bowl by placing it on top of a pot of boiling water. The two should not touch! Once your chocolate has melted pour it over the caramel layer and into the fridge to set. Once set, cut into bars or squares and enjoy.
I like to take these out of the fridge to “warm up” a little before eating!
Anything else I should know?
These will keep for 1 week in the fridge but generally they don’t tend to last that long because they taste so good.
