Salty & Sweet Caramel Slice

Salty and sweet has been on ongoing trend and luckily for everyone there is no end in sight! Whoever started it I would love to hug, kiss and throw beautifully scented rose petals at because I LOVE it! There is one recipe that I turn to when I have that salty sweet craving and that would be my delicious salty and sweet caramel slice.

It has a delicious chewy biscuit base that reminds me of a freshly baked Anzac cookie, a delicious caramel center with a hint of salt and an amazing crunchy chocolate top which consists of salty crushed pretzels and melted picnic chocolate.

Here it is!! Give this a go and you won't regret it!
