I promise you are going to LOVE this Caramel Maltesers Slice, a combination of my two favourite slices!!! and a marriage made in heaven!
If you thought it didn’t get any better than Maltesers Slice and Caramel Slice, just wait until you try this Caramel Maltesers Slice! I got the idea for this slice from a recipe video I saw on Facebook for a no bake version of this recipe. While it looked amazing (how could a Caramel and Maltesers slice not?!) I thought the only thing that could make it better was using my favourite easy Caramel Slice recipe as the base.
When I finally found some time to make this recipe, I decided to go all to and make it even MORE indulgent, by using two blocks of milk chocolate for the top layer as it helped cover the Maltesers jus a little bit more and let’s face it, you can’t go wrong with extra chocolate! Yes it is a bit of a mouthful to eat (you can easily use just one block if you prefer) but if you are going to eat this slice, you might as well make it as amazing as you can!
I couldn’t help myself from sampling a few pieces of this slice and had to hide it in the back of the fridge in an attempt to stop eating it, yep it’s really that good. It also got a big tick of approval from my husband and also a couple of friends who tried it, not that I expected any less!
My top tips for making this Caramel Maltesers Slice are to give yourself plenty of time to allow the caramel layer to cool and also for the chocolate and Maltesers layer to set. Also make sure you use a good quality sweetened condensed milk as I’ve heard from people who have used different brands
Caramel Maltesers Slice
- 1 cup 150g of plain flour
- ½ cup of coconut
- 125 g of butter
- ½ cup 70g of brown sugar
- ⅓ cup 120g of golden syrup
- 125 g of butter
- 2 x 400g cans of condensed milk - Make sure you use a good quality brand I use Nestle as I've heard that the caramel hasn't set too well when other brands of condensed milk (homebrand/aldi) have been used.
- 140 g packet of Maltesers
- 400 g of milk chocolate
- ½ teaspoon of coconut oil
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a 18 x 28cm slice tin with baking paper.
- Cut 125g og butter into cubes and place into a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 30 second spurts until melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
- Place the flour, coconut, sugar and melted butter into a large bowl and mix with a metal spoon to combine.
- Pour the mixture into your prepared slice tin and flatten the surface with the back of a spoon. Place the tray into the oven and bake for 16 - 18 minutes or until it's golden brown.
- In the meantime you can start making the caramel filling. Place the remaining butter, condensed milk and golden syrup into a small saucepan and stir oven a low heat for approximately 8 minutes or until the mixture is lovely and thick.
- Pour the caramel over the base once it has cooked and put it back in the oven to bake for a further 20 minutes or until the caramel is golden.
- Remove the slice from the oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes before placing in the fridge to chill.
- Once the slice has chilled, pour the Maltesers over the top and gently push them into the caramel layer.
- Break the milk chocolate into pieces and place it along with the coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl and cook for 30 second spurts until it's melted.
- Pour over the top of the slice and return to the fridge for 1 hour or until set.
- Cut into small squares to serve.
