This little baby uses the exact same recipe as my original caramel slice, but with a white chocolate topping for a sweet little variation. It tastes just as good as the classic dark chocolate version (but I think this one looks even better!!).

PS. The little gold specks on the top of my white chocolate caramel slice are just edible gold shimmer from the baking section of the supermarket – it’s totally not necessary but does make it look super pretty!!

    stirred and stirred the caramel over a low heat for almost half an hour and it just wouldnt thicken for whatever reason.. used the right amount of ingredients? not sure what happened there. Annoying!

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Shannon, did you use full fat (not skim) condensed milk?? It will thicken further on cooling too!
