Caramilk Slice

18/04/2024

Caramilk by itself is awesome…and then we turned it into a slice. O.M.G. Those choc caramel tones mixed with coconut, sultanas and cherry, with a hit of crunchy rice bubbles for the ultimate sweet bite.

Move over fudge…

Caramilk slice is like a cheats caramel fudge. The blending of caramel milk chocolate and condensed milk is what gives this slice that sickly sweet flavour that’s perfect in little bite-sized pieces.

You only need 5 simple ingredients to bring everything together, with no stovetop cooking or baking required.

Welcome to your new fave – Caramilk Slice

With the rise in popularity of Caramilk chocolate around the country, we thought we’d create an easy slice based off of classic white Christmas…but one we want to make and eat all year long.

You’ll usually find the slice is most commonly packed with a combination of rice bubbles, fruit and coconut. It’s a super adaptive recipe though – easily swapped out with whatever you have on hand or specific preferences you might have.

Ingredients & Substitutes

  • Chocolate – We use Cadbury Caramilk Chocolate, but you can easily swap this out for the more traditional white chocolate or even regular milk chocolate.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – Regular or coconut based sweetened condensed milk will work!
  • Desiccated Coconut – We love the texture of desiccated coconut, but if you prefer a chunkier finish you can also use coconut flakes or shredded coconut.
  • Mixed Fruit – We love a mix of half mixed fruit and glace cherries. You can also do a combination of fruit and nut here.
  • Rice Bubbles / Rice Krispies – For that crispy texture throughout the slice, we LOVE adding rice bubbles. You can swap this for other cereals such as cocoa pops for extra choc flavour or even lightly crushed cornflakes.

  1. In a large mixing bowl add the coconutmixed fruit and rice bubbles, giving everything a quick mix.
  2. In a medium glass bowl, break the Caramilk chocolate into pieces, pour over the sweetened condensed milk and heat in 20-30 second bursts in the microwave for around 1-2 minutes. 
    Important: Stir each time to help the chocolate melt evenly and mix with the sweetened condensed milk. If the chocolate seizes at any point, add a 2 tbsp at a time of boiling water and mix through quickly until a smooth texture is achieved.
  1. Once completely melted and smooth, pour over the dry mix and stir very quickly as the chocolate will start to harden.
  2. Pour and press out into a baking paper lined baking tin or dish. Spread the mix out, then use the back of a spoon or spatula to press and flatten.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cutting into small slices.

Storage

Store in an airtight container with baking paper between layers to prevent sticking (just use the one you set it in). We like to keep it the fridge, or you can store in the freezer if you want to make it ahead of time / store for longer. It should keep for 1-2 weeks in the fridge.

FAQs

Help! – My Chocolate Seized!

The one downside of quickly microwaving your chocolate is that it can split. Seized chocolate is when you’re melting it and instead of going smooth and creamy, it’ll harden right up and be impossible to work with.

The good news is, it’s SUCH an easy fix. Add a couple of tablespoons of boiling water and whisk, whisk, whisk away until smooth. You may need to add a little more boiling water depending on how much chocolate you’re melting.

Recipe Notes

  • Heating – You can heat the chocolate and condensed milk over low heat on the stove top rather than the microwave if you prefer.
  • Work Quickly – Chocolate cools and hardens quick, so the faster you work, the easier it is to press the slice into the tray.
  • Grease the Paper – Learn from us 😅, grease your tin THEN put down the baking paper so it’s not sliding everywhere when you’re trying to press the slice. Super annoying!
  • Add Nuts – Like extra crunch? Whether it’s roasted macadamias, pistachios, slivered almonds or just your favourite bunch of mixed nuts – they all go so well in this slice.
  • More Texture – You can double the amount of rice bubbles if you want more texture, and even throw in another half a cup of fruit if want an added hint of sweetness.
