Caramel Coated Wafers


You can make your own, or use purchased wafers or shortbread biscuits.  I purchased my wafers.  You need about 20.


1/2 cup raw sugar

2 tablespoons of malt extract (probably a little more as trying to measure out 2 tablespoons can be a challenge!)

3 tablespoons water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup of soy milk

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 teaspoon vanilla essence


Chocolate coating:

1/2 cup of dark chocolate chopped up

1/2 cup of white chocolate chopped up

1 teaspoon of olive oil

(You can use all of the same type of chocolate. I like to mix mine up)


Remember – I used a packet of ready made wafers.

To make the caramel, add sugar, malt extract, water & salt into a saucepan. Heat until it starts to bubble. Move to one side and mix milk, cornstarch, salt & vanilla essence in a small bowl. Add to saucepan & return to heat. Using a whisk, continue to mix until caramel is nice and thick. Allow to cool. (Lick whisk clean) 😉

Arrange wafers on a foil covered baking tray.

Add 1-2 teaspoons of caramel on top of each wafer & place in freezer for 30 minutes.

Add chocolate & olive oil into a glass bowl & microwave in 1 minute intervals, stirring until until melted.

Using a teaspoon, coat biscuits with melted chocolate and return to freezer for a further 30 minutes minimum.


I keep mine stored in a container in the fridge. But not for long!

    To help measure spponsful of the malt extract or treacle try rubbing the spoon with a little flavourless oil. It helps the treacle or whatever slide easily off the spoon.

    The caramel wafters look good and I look forward to giving them a try.

    Hi Jill,

    Thanks for the tip. The alternative is to lick the spoon clean 😉
    Did you end up making them?
