I think I first found my love of sweet and salty together when some American friends gave me chocolate covered pretzels. I was hooked at first bite and was having them sent over to me for a while.
This slice brings back those memories for me. It is a delicious combination of salty sweet caramel and chocolate. The almonds also give it a delicious texture.
I have adapted this recipe from one I have been using in the Kate Bracks Cookbook “The Sweet Life”. It is one of five recipes I am cooking for a Dessert Night I am hosting tonight. I will roll those out for you in the coming weeks.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Slice
½ cup SR flour
½ cup almond meal
½ cup brown sugar
60g butter, melted
2 cans of condensed milk
1/3 cup golden syrup
1 ½ teaspoons of sea salt flakes
50g slivered almonds
125g dark chocolate, chopped
½ sea salt flakes
1 tablespoon of flaked almonds
