  3. Meanwhile, place condensed milk, brown sugar, butter and coffee essence in a saucepan over low heat, stirring for about 10 minutes until mixture thickens.
  4. Sprinkle pastry bases with walnuts, spread half the caramel filling over each base and return to the oven for 10-12 minutes or until filling starts to bubble around the edges. Cool completely.
  5. Melt chocolate and remaining coffee essence in a bowl over a pan of simmering water (don't let bowl touch water), then pour over caramel, tilting the pan to ensure an even coating. Leave to cool and set completely before slicing.
