Method

  1. Step 1

    Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and caster sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Stir in plain flour and rice flour until dough comes together. Shape into a disc.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 19cm x 29cm slice pan with baking paper, allowing the 2 long sides to overhang.
  3. Step 3

    Press the dough over the base of the prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 mins or until light golden. Set aside to cool.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, place the condensed milk, golden syrup and extra butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 8-10 mins or until the caramel is golden brown and mixture comes away from the side of the pan. Add the peanut and stir to combine.
  5. Step 5

    Pour the peanut mixture over the shortbread base in the pan and smooth the surface. Set aside to cool.
  6. Step 6

    Place chocolate and copha or butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Stir with a metal spoon for 3 mins or until the chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Pour over the slice and smooth the surface. Sprinkle with salt. Set aside for 1 hour or until set. Cut into pieces to serve.
