Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Slice

Hello there! How’s everything going in your world? It’s busy, BUSY here! Today I have the gorgeous Kirsten from Treat Yourself Sweet guest posting and she’s bought the most deliciously sweet Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Slice with her (errrmmeeeegoddd!!). Two of my very favourite things. Anyway, Kirsten’s not only a kick-ass cook, she’s also a teacher (yep, just because life isn’t busy enough). You’re going to adore Kirsten and her yummy recipes – I pinky promise!

You love chocolate, salted caramel… oh and peanut butter- so when it comes to dessert (okay, and snack time) which one do you choose? With this little package of deliciousness, now you don’t have to… it is everything you wantneed in one little bite. If you can stop at one. ‘Are you serious?’ … yup, I’ve done it again.

Saturday was a beautiful sunny morning, perfect excuse for a run to the supermarket to pick up the essentials, but instead I had coffee in my PJs. As the sun dipped behind the clouds, I decided a run using my legs was out… the car was in – mistake #1.

As I wandered the (very small) shopping centre, food inspiration hit me everywhere… I could make this, this… maybe this. Oh- I feel like that. I stood in the baking ingredients aisle trying to decide if a peanut butter caramel slice or a double chocolate slice was more what I felt like? I got both.

I’ve gone to the supermarket – hungry and become the proud owner of half the diary section, fruit and veg, most of the chocolate section… oh and throw in a few on sale clothing items… and I haven’t even been to Aldi yet (oh, a serious weakness).

So, 2 trips to the car and a couple of garage sales on the way home and I have a floor full of can’t-be-bothered-putting-you-away groceries and one delicious Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Slice almost ready to eat. Okay, let’s be honest- I’ve sampled every layer in the making process! (and let me tell you… AH-mazing! Even the cat was intrigued).

If you could only choose one, what would it be? Chocolate, salted caramel or peanut butter???

  • BASE
  • 250 grams Arnott's Salted Caramel Monte Carlo biscuits

  • CARAMEL
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • ½ cup (120g) smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius
  • To make the base: Finely crush the biscuits and melt the butter. Combine the two and mix well. Line the base of a slice tin with baking paper.
  • Place the biscuit base in the tin and then firmly push them down with the back of a spoon or finger tips.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Take out and cool.
  • To make the caramel: Place all of the caramel ingredients in a heavy based pot over a low heat on the stove top.
  • Stir until all the ingredients are melted and the caramel is a smooth consistency.
  • Continue to stir for another 5 minutes (should be about 10 minutes in total)
  • Cool for 5 minutes and then pour over the base and spread to ensure it is an even consistency.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden and set. Set aside to cool completely.
  • To make the chocolate top: Melt the chocolate and copha together. Pour onto the cooled caramel layer and then place in the fridge until set.
  • Using a hot knife, cut into squares and store in the fridge in an air tight container.

Hi there,
This sounds delicious, I would love to make it , however I don’t know what the size of a traditional ‘slice’ tin might be. Would you be able to let us know?
Thank you. 🙂

It sounds like peanut butter would be the perfect sidekick to caramel slice! This recipe looks incredibly yummy, Kirsten and Lucy!!
