How to cut perfectly neat slices…

If I’m being honest, I’m a bit (ok… a LOT!) of an OCD kind of person and I really, really, REALLY like my slices and bars to be cut absolutely perfect. 

I put together an entire post with 9 simple tips for cutting super neat slices and bars that you can check out here (if you’re a bit OCD too!!!), but here’s a few that are super useful for this Caramello Slice recipe:

  • Leave it in the fridge for a few hours before cutting into slices
  • Choose the right knife (for this recipe I would either score through the chocolate layer lightly with a large flat knife and then press firmly down, or I’d use a small serrated knife and gently slice through). 
  • Use a hot dry knife – see tip 8 for info
  • Trim up any not-so-perfect edges with a small serrated knife

Cutting a slice into perfect pieces is absolutely not necessary (it’s going to taste just as good either way)… but if you like a pretty looking slice, then these tips will help you soooo much!!

How long can you store a Caramel Slice for?

I recommend storing our no-bake Caramello Slice in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days (it will last longer than this, but that’s the time that the slice remains at it’s very best!).

If you want to prepare this slice well ahead of time, simply store it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Notes

Any plain sweet biscuits (cookies) can be used. I generally use Arnotts brand Marie biscuits. 
Cadbury Caramello chocolate is a popular chocolate sold within Australia and NZ. If you can't buy this particular brand, you can use any soft caramel filled chocolate block. 
The amount of sweetened condensed milk you will need in this recipe will depend on the type/brand of biscuits you use. I recommend starting with 1/2 cup (or 200g) and if the mixture seems too dry and crumbly adding a little more (you want it to hold together well but certainly not be too sloppy). I also recommend choosing a full fat sweetened condensed milk (not a skim milk version).

    Does this slice survive freezing for use at a later date? I want to make it with my daughter before she goes overseas next week but keep it until a birthday at the end of January. Do you think this would be possible?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Absolutely!!! Just store it in an airtight container in the freezer 🙂

    You should provide more detail…like the pan size. I’m not at all sure what a standard rectangle is…9X13? Since you give everything in metric measures, I have to do homework. Most people still use tried and true recipes and most of those are in imperial measurements., so I much prefer not to have to work out conversions to make something. Also, I suspect you don’t live in Canada as we don’t refer to blocks of chocolate or biscuits. If you hadn’t shown the picture of the Arrowroot cookies, I wouldn’t have had any idea what type of biscuits. We generally think of soup crackers (not sweet) when referring to biscuits, especially plain. And we don’t have Cadbury Caramello bars that I’ve ever seen. We have one called Caramilk, which I suppose would work. I’d like to try the recipe…it sounds pretty yummy….we’ll see how much homework I want to do. Thx

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Ruth, no I’m not from Canada (I’m Australian) – but I certainly do love your beautiful country! From what I can remember of Caramilk it’s a bit different to Cadbury Caramello chocolate. I don’t remember it being filled with soft caramel (although I might be wrong). Also, I’m pretty sure you can buy Cadbury chocolate at one of the major supermarkets in Canada (I can’t remember which one sorry!) but I remember that it was quite expensive and had a limited range. So yes, you’re best to try and substitute the ingredients for those you can easily buy. Good luck!

      Ruth, I’m not sure if you intended it to be but your message came across as very rude! I’m not sure if you post recipes, but if you did, would you use imperial conversions and brand options for international viewers? Most of the developed world use the imperial system. It’s a far superior option for baking (less chance for mistakes!) and looking at recipes gives you the opportunity to try new things 🙂 I still have to use google to convert fahrenheit to celsius. I can never remember sticks of butter. Graham crackers, pumpkin pie filling, bisquick, cool whip etc are still totally foreign to me). I’ve lived in New Zealand, England and Australia and all of Lucy’s recipes are super easy using locally, easily sourced ingredients. I’m just so grateful there are people out there working up recipes and posting them so the rest of us don’t have to 🙂

      Thank you!

  4. Jess M says:

    Hi I’m wanting to make this recipe for a party on Sunday, which is 6-7 days away, surly the slice would still be ok if it’s make ahead of time or is it strictly eat within 5 days?
    Have you got any party recipes I can make in advance?

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Jess, just make it and freeze it! Allow it to defrost the night before you need it in the fridge.
