White Chocolate Caramel Bars

Oatmeal-Coconut Crust, gooey Caramel, topped with White Chocolate

Gooey caramel with a crunchy, sticky oatmeal-coconut crust AND topped with white chocolate !
That's close to all my favorites in these White Chocolate Caramel Bars

I am usually very pessimistic when I'm making anything caramel or toffee-ish - and don't even get me started on fudge ! Total nightmare and it just about never turns out 100%

This recipe is so simple and it worked. The caramel is soft, gooey and what I was most excited about {yes, I get excited when a recipe works out when I thought it won't!}, it sets perfectly and cuts nicely into portions.

Oatmeal-Coconut Crust, gooey Caramel, topped with White Chocolate


White Chocolate Caramel Bars


20 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

1/3 cup Rolled Oats, processed finely
1/2 cup Self-Raising Flour
2 t Cocoa Powder
1/3 cup Light Brown Sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut
1/2 cup Butter, melted
1 can {397g} Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/3 cup Golden or Treacle Syrup
2 TB Butter, cubed
2 slabs {80g each} White Chocolate - good quality, not baking chocolate
2 t Vegetable Oil {I use Sunflower Oil}

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C {350 deg F} - line a 20 x 20cm {8 x 8 inch} baking dish with baking paper - leave an edge hanging over the sides for easy removal later.
2.) Combine the Oats, Flour, Cocoa Powder, Brown Sugar and Coconut in a medium mixing bowl - add the melted butter and mix - press onto the bottom of the prepared baking dish - bake 10 minutes.
3.) Place the Condensed Milk, Syrup and cubed Butter in a medium saucepan - heat over medium heat, stirring for 5 - 10 minutes until the mixture thickens and turns a light caramel color.
4.) Pour the caramel mixture over the baked crust - bake a further 10 minutes - remove from the oven and cool completely.
5.) Melt the White Chocolate {microwave or over boiling water} - add the Oil - stir to combine - pour over the caramel - refrigerate 30 minutes or until set - cut into bars using a hot knife.

This was an immediate hit with my family, therefore ... next time, I'm making a double batch !
