Chocolate Caramel Slice

This is happiness in one single bite! Both my Mum and Nana would make this alot, and I have to say it was quite often in our fridge for me and my sister for an after school treat or for when we had family and friends over. It is a 3 step recipe but each step is so simple, my kids definately get involved so really anyone can do this.

Trust me you will not be able to stop at one piece of this. It is the perfect balance of sweetness, chewiness and decadence. It's one of those treats that does need to be stored in the fridge, I will advise to take them out a few minutes before you want to serve them so that the chocolate and caramel can soften slightly. The flavour is great at any temperature, but I prefer them just below room temp.
