Vanilla slice is by far one of the most popular desserts in our house, but this Caramilk vanilla slice takes vanilla slice to a whole different level.
A block of Caramilk is melted through the cream before the vanilla slice filling is made, which gives it the perfect Caramilk taste without being TOO strong. This really is one delicious slice.
You could top this slice with a layer of icing just like a traditional vanilla slice if you preferred, but I felt it was perfect just as it was.

How to make Caramilk vanilla slice
This vanilla slice isn’t made quite like a traditional vanilla slice, but is instead made using my quick and easy vanilla slice pudding. It’s so much quicker and easier, and tastes amazing.
This version is made even easier by using lattice biscuits as the base and top rather than sheets of puff pastry. It also makes the slice so much easier to cut into pieces.
Before making a start on the vanilla filling, line a suitably sized baking dish with baking paper. You will want a packet dish big enough to hold 11 of the lattice biscuits side by side. Set aside while you make the filling.
Break up the block of Caramilk into pieces, and add them to a small saucepan along with the thickened cream. Stir over a low heat until the chocolate has just melted. Set aside to cool.
Once the cream mixture has cooled, add it to the bowl of a stand mixer, along with both packets on vanilla pudding mix and the milk. If you don’t have a stand mixer, use a large mixing bowl and hand held electric beaters.
Use the wire whisk attachment to beat the ingredients until soft peaks form. Arrange half of the biscuits in the lined baking dish, and spread the vanilla mixture evenly over the biscuits. Top with the remaining biscuits, ensuring the top layer of biscuits lines up with the bottom layer.
Transfer the baking dish to the fridge for around an hour to allow the filling to firm up further. Slice using the gap between each biscuits as you guide and serve. Store any leftover slice in an airtight container in the fridge.
