chocolate caramel slice 2011

My workmates just adore chocolate caramel slice, so whenever there's a farewell morning tea it's one of my 'go-to' recipes. I use a really old recipe that was originally on the can of condensed milk but with one variation - I double the caramel layer. It still takes the same amount of time to cook and I can't tell you what a difference this makes to the finished product. Oh, I also use butter instead of copha in the chocolate topping as I don't like the taste of coconut oil.

I took these into work a week ago, before the oven died, and in my haste to get to the station tumbled over and went for a slide on my knees. A week down the track my knees still look the worse for wear but I saved the slice from disaster. I was told by my colleagues, it was worth it.

With a European summer just around the corner, I've been avoiding chocolate, cake and cookies, so I've not had any of the slice. It's been lurking in the freezer just long enough for me to take some photos and the leftovers went straight back to work today.

Less than 2 weeks now until my holidays begin and I'm getting quite excited. I'll be back on Wednesday briefly before heading to Brisbane for the Queens Birthday Long Weekend.

So until then,

  1. Such lovely photos, I can't imagine taking photos of caramel slice & not having a slice or three... If you have the time, do pop into Two Golden Hours at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday & Monday of the long weekend. We'd love to see you there! K
