Notes

The cook time does not include the time it takes for this raw caramel slice to set in the freezer.
Cutting the slice - Use a hot knife to cut this raw slice to ensure that the chocolate layer does not crack.
Base layer - if the base layer mixture is sticking to your spoon when you are pressing it into a lined slice tin, then use a clean spoon dipped into coconut oil. The mixture won't stick and it will also help to smooth the layer out.
Caramel layer - You can dip a clean spoon in some coconut oil to smooth out the caramel layer.
Storage - Keep in an air tight container in the freezer. It should easily last 1-2 months.
