Happy middle-of-the-work-week! Also the day of the USA 2016 Elections. What can I say about this subject?… I’m not usually into politics and take no notice of New Zealand’s politics, let alone other countries. However, it has been impossible not to be caught up in the USA election and quite honestly it’s been quite a show. It’s been an intense, confusing, shocking and probably the most memorable election in history. For many people, today is going to be very intense but what ever the outcome I have something to lift your spirits and pick you up.
I have a super indulgent and one of my favourite recipes ever to share with you! Buttery Caramel Oat Slice…. These bars are a soft and crunchy oat base and top with a LARGE layer of buttery caramel sandwiched in between! This recipe is a crowd pleaser and I have had so many requests for this recipe I’ve actually lost count.
This recipe was adapted from Jo Seagar’s Caramel Oat Slice but I have, of course, put my own spin on the recipe to make it my own. The base and topping contains both oats and coconut to create a lovely flavour and added crunch in the texture instead of your usual soft cookie base. This texture pairs perfectly with the rich, creamy, buttery, indulgent caramel center. The caramel center is a play on my Caramel Filling recipe.
