Macadamia Caramel Slice

我不知道为什么我老公就是爱吃这片甜甜的东西。每次走过有卖caramel slice 的地方,他都会多看几眼。我常用同样的骗话阻止他,骗他说外面的卖得很贵,他买一片我可以回家做一tin给他。很多时候,他就这样打消念头。哈哈,还是很容易骗的。昨天超市condensed milk 减价,好吧,就给他做个caramel slice吧。告诉他我在做这甜点时,他眼睛一亮,马上露出喜悦的表情。还好他说会把切成乱七八糟的边边先吃掉,将切得比较像样的留给我拍照了才吃。还是挺了解做blog人的心声嘛!

一般在外面卖的slice都没有加macadamia nuts,但是这个食谱里竟加了macadamias,增添了口感。爱巧克力和爱吃甜的朋友,对caramel slice 都会是爱不释手!!
