Winter is here and short days, cold weather and comfort foods are upon us!
Satiate weakened emotions and widened appetites with this sugar fix perfectly geared to the season;
The ideal treat for weekends. Serve it with frothy hot chocolates for a guaranteed sugar rush.
When I bake this, my kids tell me they love me.
So honoured! They associate sugar with love.
I love sugar too!
This is my own recipe. I have experimented to make it as low fat as possible without compromising on the sugary bang one expects from such a food. This slice is really easy to make which ensures you will keep coming back for more!
1 cup of self-raising flour
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of desiccated coconut
100gm of margarine, melted
1 tin (395gm) Nestle 99% fat free condensed milk
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
1 cup of Nestle milk chocolate melts
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Line a slice tin with baking paper.
In a bowl mix the flour, sugar, coconut and margarine.
Press into the lined tin. Make sure your lining comes up higher than the edges for easy removal later.
Bake this base for 10 mins until lightly golden.
To a saucepan add:
Heat this gently with frequent stirring until a thick custard is formed.
Spread this custard over your baked base and return to the oven for a further 8-10 mins.
It should be golden but not too brown. Keep an eye on this as sugar heats quickly.
Don't be concerned if it bubbles and boils in the oven. When it cools it will be surprisingly flat.
When cooled, melt your chocolate melts and spread on top of the first two layers.
When completely cooled, refrigerate a few hours or overnight and slice to desired portions.
