Caramel Nut Slice with Chocolate

I've had a craving for something sweet and chewy and chocolately this week. And this Caramel Nut Slice with Chocolate on top really hit the spot. It was done in minutes and is now all neatly sliced up and in my fridge. I had two pieces the day I made it because, even though one would have been enough, I sliced my finger open cutting the slice up because I'm left-handed and a clutz! Now I can constantly feel my heartbeat pounding in my pinky finger tip haha!

This slice makes a generous serving as well so you if you are only one or two people in your home, you could pop it in the freezer to keep fresh. 

Happy Sunday guys! I'm off to the cinema with my Caramel Nut Slice with Chocolate to 'Lion'!
