    Using large portion of dough, shape level tablespoons of mixture into 2cm x 4cm bar shapes. Place on prepared trays, leaving room for spreading. Using the end of a wooden spoon, make a 1cm x 3cm indentation in the centre of each rectangle. Fill each indent with 1 teaspoon caramel.

    Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Roll remaining dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Using a small sharp knife, cut into 3cm x 5cm rectangles. Re-roll scraps and repeat to make 15 rectangles. Place 1 rectangle on top of each caramel-filled bar. Press lightly to seal. Freeze for 15 minutes. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Stand on trays for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Place dark chocolate in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds with a metal spoon, or until melted and smooth. Dip top side of 1 bar into chocolate. Gently shake off excess. Place bar, chocolate-side up, on a wire rack set over a baking tray lined with baking paper. Set aside for 30 minutes or until set. Serve.
