Chocolate caramel slice recipe ideas?

Tesco make expensive but apparently very nice chocolate caramel slice which my boyfriend is rather devoted to, and I fancy trying to make a vegan version. The base is shortbread, with a firm caramel on top (as opposed to, say, the toffee sauce for sticky toffee pudding, which is the nearest thing I've made successfully - you don't want to know how badly wrong my fudge went, and plain chocolate on top. Shortbread's easy enough, I'll just melt plain chocolate, but does anyone know how I should make the caramel? I'm thinking using some of the following: sugar, golden syrup, soya cream, margarine. Also, do I bake the shortbread first and then pour the rest on top and let it set?

The nearest thing I've made so far is this sticky toffee pudding, of which the sauce involves marg, sugar and soya cream, but is too thin for this. I'm thinking about converting this recipe (with a different shortbread as we don't want coconut in there), but I don't know if condensed milk equates directly to soya cream, and 400g seems an awful lot of it, my 250 ml carton of soya cream only weighs 260 g including the carton.
