This Caramel Slice recipe has to be one of the easiest recipes ever. I always have a can of condensed milk in the pantry so whenever i’m feeling like a sugar hit i just whip these up. The only thing i don’t like about this is that there is a lot of waiting around for things to set. If you’re impatient like me, you can skip that part. It’ll still taste yummy, just won’t look as good.
