    I was fed up of buying caramel slice so decided to create my own recipe now I make them at home all the time. You can adjust each section to make each layer as thick as you want.

    3. Caramel: Put the condensed milk, butter and golden syrup in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour mixture on the cooled shortbread base then freezer for 20 minutes while preparing the chocolate and doing the dishes.

    Reduced butter in caramel to 4 tablespoons after reading other reviews.  -  15 Sep 2015


    I will make it with double the caremel next time, but think that is a preference thing. Worked out great and easier than I thought.  -  15 Jan 2014
