So that's my official recipe, which I now have printed out.  I adapted this to fit nicely into my square baking tray which is 20cm x 20cm.

Everything laid out

Mostly measured out

The dry ingredients and the butter for the biscuit base.  I use a food processor to blitz the rolled oats and coconut until fine.  You could achieve a similar effect with a packet of biscuits, but I think this has less salt so would rather do it this way.

The caramel filling is simple - just sweetened condensed milk, golden syrup and butter

The base pressed into my baking tray.  Cook that up for ten minutes

After baking, allow to cool.

This is with the chocolate topping.  The oil helps keep the chocolate soft and not super brittle.  I think I overdid the red/green colour correction here.

And underdid the red/green colour correction here.  It takes probably at least an hour for the chocolate to set, depending on how much you let the filling cool before topping it.

I really should make more effort at my food photography.  Like made this nicely squared off...
