  • This was First Slice Ever. My

    This was First Slice Ever.

    My husbands mum makes a caramel slice which is a family fave so thought I'd give this recipe a try. I found the base to gooey and sweet. The caramel didn't really work and wasn't that rich golden/brown colour, rather a milky light golden/brown colour. It still tastes nice but wasn't what I thought it would be. Not sure I'd make it again.

  • I cooked this too last night

    I cooked this too last night for the first time since translating. Thanks for the feedback- mine was the same! This is the original recipe.... http://m.aww.com.au/food/recipes/2010/8/chocolate-caramel-slice/ 

    next time I'm going to start my five minutes from when the thermo is actually at the 70 deg temperature to see if that helps!   Lucky it still tastes yummy- and a legitimate excuse to make it again soon!

  • I have cooked this twice now.

    I have cooked this twice now. The first time I followed the directions exactly and the filling wasn't thick enough, oozing out upon slicing. The same consistency occurred for the caramel filling the second time around, so I ended up boiling it on the gas stove top for a few minutes to thicken it up to the usual consistency (I've been making caramel slice for years the conventional way). I even tried cooking it at Varoma temperature for 5 min/Sp 1 twice to see if it would thicken up under high temp. It didn't.

    Has anyone got this to work?  I'd love any comments, as I much prefer to make this in the TM!
