Chocolate caramel slice

    2 hours 50 min

    These chocolate caramel slices are like a Millionaire's shortbread, except there's no boiling the tin, and the topping is a luscious chocolate icing instead of plain melted chocolate. It has been passed down through my family and is simply delicious!

    Terrible recipe why would you use baking powder if the base is meant to be like shortbread. Also the caramel is too light in colour and sickly.  -  18 Oct 2012
