DIRECTIONS

  • BASE (first 3 ingredients):
  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Add the flour and stir to make a mixture that is soft and will go together when squashed.
  • Lightly knead and then roll out or place into a deep Swiss roll tin.
  • Press into place with the palm of your hand until even.
  • Prick all over with a fork.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes gas 4.
  • Cool in the tin.
  • FILLING (middle four ingredients):
  • Place the butter, sugar, syrup, and condensed milk into a pan and bring slowly to a boil.
  • Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Once boiling keep on a slow boil stirring all the time for about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Caramel should be thick and golden.
  • Allow to cool.
  • When cool pour over the biscuit mixture and leave to set.
  • TOPPING (last 2 ingredients):
  • Melt the chocolate and butter over a pan of simmering water.
  • Spread over top of the caramel layer.
  • Cut into squares or fingers once set.
  • Do not be put off by the stages; very easy and worth the wait. It looks like you have been in the kitchen and slaving over the cooker for hours. You will get compliments with this one.
