Caramel Slice

If you ever feel like baking it up one day, this is the winner recipe. There are a few layers to make but it's worth it - it lasts so long as each piece is savoured in its sweetness. It's perfect for treating people to something special or for kiddies who adore it. The dark chocolate that I recommend to use in the icing helps balance the sweetness in the caramel for a more adult flavour. It tastes as you hope it would.
