Chocolate Caramel Slice

Love from Lisa Chocolate Caramel Slice

Chocolate Caramel Slice is a recipe I’ve been wanting to try for ages. I’m crazy for slices, and always crave a good hedgehog, lemon slice, or caramel slice whenever I’m out having coffee. So this time I decided I’d make my own so I could eat it whenever I’m having coffee at home, which is a lot these days.

This recipe was fun to make but provided its own little challenges. The first was breaking my beater at step two. Funny thing was I could tell this was going to happen, as beating the butter was not working, but I beat away anyway until my beater quit on me.

The second challenge was making the filling. I wasn’t very good at this. I don’t think I let the filling get golden enough; hence it didn’t reach the hardness I think it needed.

But not to worry, the result was still beautiful. The crunchy base, gooey caramel centre, and hard chocolate topping are a combination to die for.

I recommend putting the finished slices in the fridge overnight and eating them cold the next day.  I did this and they were so delicious it was hard to stop at one.
