No bake slices are among my favourite recipes, so easy but packs a flavour punch, and this Caramilk version is delicious
With the news from Cadbury that Caramilk is coming back for good has been met with much excitement. For me I love using it in baking, it is a basic chocolate with no nasties and brings in a gorgeous flavour. Plus it is lovely to work with.
No bake slices are easy and quick to make, simply combining a biscuit base with the melted ingredients of chocolate, butter and condensed milk. For this one I have included coconut and walnuts to give it a little more texture and flavour. The Caramilk is creamy and rich so it is a lovely base recipe to add texture to. What else would you add?
According to my sources at the always reliable Wikipedia, Caramilk was sold in NZ and Australia in the mid 1990’s before eventually being stopped. It is a caramel flavoured white chocolate. In 2017 it was released in New Zealand and everyone went crazy to get their hands on some.
You could find it in Australia occasionally but at times it was 30 times the recommended retail price!!! Again they bought it back in early 2018 on limited release. After a lot of requests it is now to be a permanent flavour in the range, available in both New Zealand and Australia. Which is great news for all fans…..now do you think they could also bring back snifters and tangy fruits???
Once you have prepared the base, allow it to chill while you prepare the topping, which of course is more Caramilk. You use two blocks to create this recipe. For any chocolate topping the trick is to add a little oil to the chocolate, this gives it a lovely gloss but more importantly it ensures that when you slice it the topping doesn’t crack. The other trick is to allow the slice to return to room temperature before slicing if you have time.

Would you have a suggestion to do for a nut allergy… something to replace the walnuts?
You can simply leave them out.
Absolutely yummy. Impossible not to slurp the warm ,creamy ,chocolate condensed milk as I was making this . I used dark chocolate as I didn’t have caramilk . It doesn’t last in my house.
Oh amazing and thoroughly recommend for a quick slice to take to friends house .
I am so pleased you enjoyed it! Yes it works beautifully with any chocolate you love.
My partner and I have made this slice twice now and it doesn’t last long! So delicious. We made it yesterday and now the event we’re going to has been cancelled, so I’m asking if its suitable for freezing? Thanks.
Yes you can freeze this recipe.
Absolutely delicious, didn’t last long in our house. I didn’t put the walnuts in as my kids don’y like them, but tasted really good anyway.
Can definitely leave the walnuts out. So glad you enjoyed it.
Hi Maureen, I take it you’re based in the UK! I’d like to make this recipe and wondered what UK biscuits you’d recommend?

Hi there I am wanting to make this slice but minus the coconut and walnuts do I need to adjust anything? Than you
You can add a little extra biscuits for the coconut but omit the walnuts all together. Some people have added rice bubbles also for some extra texture.
I weighed everything all made according to your recipe. Biscuits crushed fine no lumps and it was a sticky sloppy mess. Put back In bowl after 2 hrs in fridge and added more crushed biscuits. Still very sticky but hoping for the best. Added almost another pkt of biscuits. Ran out of biscuits, so stopped and got it into the fridge. Hoping for the
Oh no how odd! I make this often, I wonder what happened?
It’s delicious to eat straight out of the freezer!
For my anti-nut co-workers I replaced the nuts for chopped up hokey pokey and sprinkled some smashed hokey pokey on the chocolate topping. 5+ star ratings were received from all who tasted it. Thanks for an excellent recipe.
What a brilliant idea! Love it
Love this recipe!! Can I freeze the slice?
Yes you can, wrap it well and pop in an airtight container once completely set.
Hi there, I’ve made both this slice and the dark chocolate slice which is similar of yours and both don’t set very well for me (the base). Any ideas where I could be going wrong? the last one I made I had to remix the whole slice together in a pot and set it that way just so that I didn’t’ waste all of the ingredients. It was still delicious of course…
It’s either adding too much wet ingredients or not enough dry, or alternatively not crushing the biscuits fine enough. If they are big lumps they won’t absorb the liquid enough. I would have some extra biscuits on hand to crush.
Hi Anna! Can any oil be added to the topping (coconut/olive), or do you find vegetable oil is best?
As long as it has no/limited taste. Coconut or light olive is fine.
One of the most delicious things I have tasted in a long time
That’s great to hear 🙂

Thank you so much.

I’d like to make this but confused about the amount of chocolate to use. Hope you can let me know. Thank you.
Hi, two whole blocks total. One block less a row for the base and one block plus that row for the topping. 🙂
Love this recipe, have to use Caramac as no Caramilk in the UK.
So glad it works so well with Caramac
Planning to try it today, with Whittakers chocolate – the “C word” is not spoken here!
An absolute favourite in our house (and many, many other houses, I am sure!) So easy to make and so delicious! I think my hubby would have it for breakfast if he could! Hee hee! Thanks 🙂
