FERNA CHOCOLATE CARAMEL BARS

Ingredients: 

Base:

 Brown Sugar, firmly packed, ½ cup

 Franklin Baker Gem Desiccated Coconut, 2/3 cup

 All Purpose Flour, 2/3 cup

 Gold Coast Butter Oil Substitute, melted, 85 grams

Caramel Filling:

 Gold Coast Butter Oil Substitute, ¼ cup

 Ferna Light Corn Syrup, 2 tbsp

 Condensed Milk, 1 can

Chocolate Topping:

 Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate Chips, 200 grams 

 Gold Coast Butter Oil Substitute, 2 tbsp

 

Procedure:

1. Preheat oven to 375F (180C). Grease an 8-inch baking pan and line bottom and sides with wax paper. 

2. Stir brown sugar, coconut and flour together. Add butter oil substitute and mix until well combined. Firmly press mixture into prepared pan using the back of a tablespoon. 

3. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly-brown and slightly-risen. Make caramel during this time. 

4. Place butter oil substitute and light syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When butter oil substitute has melted, add condensed milk. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 9-12 minutes, or until caramel thickens.

5. Gently spread caramel evenly over base. Return to oven for a further 10-12 minutes (a border of lightly-browned caramel will form around the edges of the slice). Allow slice to cool to room temperature. 

6. For the chocolate topping: Melt chocolate and butter oil substitute in a small saucepan over VERY low heat. Whisk well to incorporate butter into chocolate and spread evenly over caramel slice. Refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 30 minutes. Holding onto wax paper, remove slice from baking pan. Cut into 12 squares, using a hot, dry knife. You may have to dip your knife into very hot water (and dry) before making subsequent cuts, to keep the cuts neat.
