PREP: 30 MIN | COOK:30 MIN + 30 MIN to set | SERVES: 6

What you’ll need…


350g pkt Sunbeam Almond Meal 

1/4 cup caster sugar 

60g butter, melted, cooled 

1 egg 


2 x 395g cans Nestle Sweetened Condensed Milk 

1/3 cup (80ml) golden syrup 

100g butter, extra 


180g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped 

50g Butter, extra 

50g Cream 


100g Sunbeam Almonds, toasted and crushed 

Gold leaf (see note), to decorate 

Fresh Berries 


Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. In a large bowl add Sunbeam Almond Meal, sugar the butter and egg and combine until a breadcrumb texture. Spoon into a greased 23cm (base measurement) fluted loose base tart tin. Press mixture to line the base and sides of the tin. Making sure you have made even base and sides, the palm of your hand for the base. Freeze for 15 minutes. Place the tart shell on a baking tray and bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until golden. Set aside to cool. 

Combine the Nestle Sweetened Condensed Milk, golden syrup and half the extra butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, for 5-7 minutes or until golden in colour and caramel thickens. Remove from heat and immediately pour into the pastry case. Use a small palette knife to smooth the surface. 

Place the chocolate, cream and remaining extra butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water and stir with a metal spoon for 5 minutes or until chocolate melts and mixture is glossy. Pour over the caramel and use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface. Set aside for 30 minutes to set.  

Toast almond in moderate oven for 10mins then roughly blitz to make nut sprinkles to decorate, add gold leaf & fresh berries. Cut into wedges to serve. 

Note: Packets of edible gold leaf are available from the baking aisle. Use tweezers to arrange pieces of gold leaf on the chocolate before it sets. Silver leaf can be used as an alternative.
