Whisk vanilla, condensed milks and golden syrup in a bowl until well combined. Pour over base and bake, turning pan around halfway, for 40-45 minutes or until light golden and caramel is set with a gentle wobble in the centre. Set aside to cool completely.
Place chocolates and oil in a bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Allow to stand for 5 minutes, then stir until melted and smooth. Cool slightly, then pour over caramel. Chill for 1 hour or until set. Remove from fridge and cut into slices to serve.
