Birthday Chocolate Caramel Slice Success

Thanks to those of you who left encouraging comments on my last post.  I thought that I would let you know that the birthday dessert worked out in the end :-)

This, my friends, is a chocolate caramel slice on steroids.  It has a layer of shortbread-style crust (with coconut), a caramel layer, and is topped by melted chocolate.  Sure, the caramel was a little gooey, has to be kept refrigerated, and required about 3 times as long in the oven (plus scraping off some burnt bits) but it turned out well.

Does he look sugar-crazed or what?

Yes, it’s a giant dessert.  I didn’t think about the fact at the time of writing up the grocery list that this is more suited for a party of 20 people as opposed to a party of 2 adults and 1 hungry toddler.  Lets just say that a big chunk of this is currently sitting at Chris’ office and will hopefully be happily gobbled up by his colleagues.

  2. That sounds amazingly sweet! But you are probably right about it needed to feed more than 2 adults and a toddler :) But you have one happy looking hubby! :)
