    TAN SQUARES:
    180g butter
    ½ cup White Sugar
    ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 cups white flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    ½ cup chocolate chips

    Caramel
    1 tin condensed milk
    75 grams butter
    2 tablespoons Golden Syrup

    Method:
    Pre-heat your oven to 180°C and line a 25cm x 15cm slice tin with baking paper.
    Cream butter and sugar, then add in vanilla. Sift in the flour and baking powder and gently mix until combined.
    Press two thirds of the mixture evenly into your baking paper lined tin.
    At this stage you will need to make your caramel. To make the caramel melt together the condensed milk, golden syrup and butter in the microwave, I gave mine four zaps of 40 seconds each, stirring between each interval. Your caramel is ready when it is golden and thickened. Pour the caramel over the base you have created in your slice tin.
    Mix the remaining base mixture with the chocolate chips and crumble over the caramel.
    Bake in your pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes.
    Remove from the oven when the top of your slice is golden and leave in the tin to cool completely before slicing into squares.

    I make another version of the Tan square but sprinkle chopped walnuts on top instead of adding the chocolate chips. Makes it a bit healthier and not so sweet

    EASY FRUIT SLICE:
    1 cup self-raising flour

    1 cup sugar

    1 cup dried mixed fruit

    1 cup desiccated coconut

    1 cup milk

    Method
    Cooking method: Baking

    Grease and line a fairly deep ‘slice’ dish or cake tin.

    Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.

    Pour into the greased dish and bake in a pre-heated moderate (180C) oven for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked through in the centre. Yum!

    This is a very quick and easy slice to make. It is also really tasty and keeps well – and it is easy to remember the recipe.

    175 g butter
    ½ cup caster sugar
    1 egg, beaten
    2 cups flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    3 Tbsp cocoa

    CHOCOLATE CARAMAL SLICE:

    Filling
    1 ½ x 375 g cans sweetened condensed milk
    2 Tbsp golden syrup
    30 g softened butter

    Icing
    1 cup icing sugar
    2 Tbsp cocoa
    1 Tbsp butter, melted
    Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease or line with baking paper a 20 x 30cm slice tin.
    Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy. Mix in the egg.
    Fold in the sifted flour, baking powder and cocoa. Mix together and press the mixture into the slice tin. Bake for 15 minutes.
    While the base is baking, prepare the caramel by gently heating the filling ingredients together until they are combined.
    Pour the filling over the partly cooked base and return to the oven for a further 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
    When cooled, make the icing by mixing the ingredients together. Add hot water if required. Spread the icing over the caramel. Cut into small squares when icing has set.
