A home cook has shared a remarkably simple recipe for Caramilk slices, no baking required.
Tahlee Hammond posted in a cookery group on Facebook on Friday, telling members she’d made the slices with Rice Bubbles, milk arrowroot biscuits, a tin of condensed milk, butter and a block of Cadbury’s best-selling caramelised white chocolate.
The mother from Sydney said she mixed two cups of cereal with one packet of crushed biscuits, then melted the other ingredients in a saucepan over a low heat and tipped in the dry mixture.
She covered the top with a second block of melted Caramilk mixed with a teaspoon of vegetable oil which makes the chocolate smooth and shiny.
Ms Hammond said the slices were ‘so easy to make’ and took just one hour to set in the fridge.
Caramilk fans were delighted with the simplicity of the recipe, with one woman saying she had already made two batches since it was shared Friday night.
‘I’ve made it twice so far and oh my God, it’s just so delicious! Thanks for sharing,’ she said.
Another said: ‘There’s only one problem. The Caramilk needs to survive the car drive home first!’
Others said the slices looked ‘delicious’ and had reminded them to stock up on blocks of the caramelised chocolate next time it’s reduced from $5 to $2.50 in Coles supermarket.
And it’s not the first Caramilk-inspired dessert that’s gone viral on social media this year.
In February, amateur baker Luke Matthews put a unique spin on Australia’s iconic lamington cake by making a batch infused with the Cadbury favourite instead of traditional chocolate sauce.
Using cream, icing sugar, shredded coconut and ready-made slabs of sponge along with a bar of the white caramelised chocolate, the father from New South Wales whipped up 15 large lamingtons in 30 minutes.
The recipe proved wildly popular, racking up more than 5,000 likes and 12,000 comments as well as being shared by almost 2,000 people less than 24 hours after it was posted in an Australian cookery group on Facebook.
