Twix Slice!

Every year I bake a dessert for Christmas. This year I have decided to make a Twix slice.
INGREDIENTS
For the base:
  • 125g softened butter
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 125g plain flour
  • 60g corn flour

For the caramel:

  • 50g butter
  • 50g light muscavado sugar
  • 1 x can condensed milk

For the topping:

  • 300g milk chocolate

METHOD

  • Preheat oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3. Grease a 20cm square tin and line with baking parchment so it overhangs the top by 2cm.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Sift together the flour and cornflour and add to the butter and sugar and mix to a smooth dough. Press into the base of the tin and bake for 30 mins. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • To make the caramel, place all the ingredients into a saucepan and gently heat, stirring continuously until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and continue to stir for 5 mins until it has thickened. Pour over the base and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Break the chocolate into a bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Do not allow the base of the bowl to touch the water. Stir until the chocolate is fully melted.
  • Pour the chocolate over the cooled caramel and chill for 30 mins. Remove from the tin using the paper and cut into finger slices.
