Ingredients
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 350g plain flour, sifted
  • 225g salted butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 150g soft brown sugar
  • 397g can Carnation Condensed Milk
  • 150g Asda Dark Chocolate (50 percent cocoa solids), in squares
  • 200g Asda Milk Chocolate, in squares
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3.

  • Line the base and sides of a 20cm x 30cm shallow cake tin or roasting tin with baking paper. Mix the caster sugar with the flour and rub in the salted butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.

  • Tip into the tin and press down very firmly with a large spoon.

  • Bake for 35 minutes until pale golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin.

  • Put the unsalted butter and brown sugar in a pan and heat gently until melted. Add the condensed milk and simmer gently for 8-10 minutes until the mixture thickens slightly.

  • As it cooks, stir continuously with a wooden spoon, making sure you take the spoon into the edges of the pan to stop it catching and burning. Pour over the biscuit base and leave until cold.

  • Put the chocolate in a large bowl. Put the bowl over a pan of hot water, making sure the base of the bowl doesn't touch the water. Leave until melted, stirring occasionally.

  • As soon as the chocolate is melted, pour onto the caramel and leave until set.

  • Cut into squares to serve.
