I often make this coconut meringue slice which is very nice. You could try putting canned caramel onto the base before topping with the meringue, then bake as stated in the recipe. I have C&P'd the recipe for you

Coconut Meringue Slices Makes 12
75 g (3 oz) margarine
100 g (4 oz) caster sugar
2 medium egg yolks
2 x 15 ml spoon(2 tbsp) milk
few drops vanilla essence
175 g (6 oz) Self Raising Flour
pinch salt
2 medium egg whites
100 g (4 oz) caster sugar
50 g (2 oz) desiccated coconut
chopped cherries and nuts

Heat oven to 160ºC, 325ºF, Gas Mark 3. Grease and line a tin 28 x 18 cm (11 x 7 inch). Cream margarine and sugar, beat in egg yolks, milk and essence. Fold in the flour and the salt and spread in the tin. Beat egg whites stiffly, fold in sugar and coconut. Spread mixture over base and sprinkle with cherries and nuts. Bake for about 45 minutes. Cut into slices when cool.

I made this today. Just far far to sweet and a little too much coconut having it in the base and top.
