About a year ago while shopping at the Vegan grocer 'The Radical Grocer' in Brunswick I found Soy sweetened condensed milk!
This stuff is uber pricey but pretty good for this recipe. The caramel does not set like the non vegan version but it comes pretty close.
1 cup plain flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted nuttelex
1 can soy sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup nuttelex
2 Tablespoons golden syrup
2 blocks lindt dark chocolate
Pre heat over to 180 degrees.
In a mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients then add melted nuttelex.
Spread on lined slice tin and bake in over for about 10 mins.
Place condensed milk, nuttelex and golden syrup in a pan and heat until nuttelex is melted.
Cook over low heat for about 10 mins until the mix has thickened.
pour over base and cook for further 10 mins.
Melt chocolate and copha in a pan the pour over cooled and set caramel.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours.
I love this photo (above) but there is a tiny little bit of fluff on the top piece of slice and it is just killing me. I probably shouldn't have mentioned it because I am probably the only one who has noticed!
Its so annoying!
