Caramel Slice

This traditional caramel slice recipe is a firm family favourite that we have been making for years. Since moving overseas, we became especially nostalgic for traditional Australian treats and this recipe did not disappoint, especially on Australia day! I'm not sure where the original recipe came from, but we have perfected over the years and think its perfect.
