I love chocolate and caramel together. But this is no recent epiphany or anything. This is a combination I have been obsessed with for a long time (I've even featured it twice before on this blog, here and here). The cause for this rather indulgent obsession lies with...my high school canteen. I used to have one of these per day while at high school. The canteen had the most scrumptious homemade ones that I just couldn't resist. Since I am no longer at school, my favourite little treat is not readily available anymore (which is kind of lucky since I think I would be around 200kgs if I still ate one of these per day) so I had to bake some up. They didn't look as pretty as the ones from back in my young teenage years, but they tasted just as beautiful, if not better. It's true... absence makes the heart - or taste buds - grow stronger!
Recipe adapted from this recipe. I warn you, the refrigerating for three hours (I've just realised I have written regridgerate on the recipe picture haha. It's how we write it in Australia.) is absolute torture! But it's definitely worth it in the end.

I also warn you that if you are on any kind of summer diet right now then I wouldn't bake these until after the bikini season is over. They are impossible to turn down. I kept telling myself that I was only going to have one, but we all know that never works. But as I said...they are worth it.
