Marbled Caramel Chocolate Slice….

Went to see The Help last night.  Fun.  Not as good as the book, though—-but, then, movies usually aren’t quite as good as the book.  If you haven’t read it–it’s a fun read.

Spending most of the week on scaffolding and ladders made me need a treat! 🙂  Thought I’d share a fun one with you……..

Marbled Caramel Chocolate Slice

for the base:

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup fine sugar

3/4 cup sweet butter, softened

for the filling:

7 tbsp. sweet butter

1/2 cup light brown sugar

2 – 14 oz. cans sweetened condensed milk

for the topping:

3 1/2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate

3 1/2 oz. milk chocolate

2 oz. white chocolate

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 350.  Line a 13×9 jelly roll pan {cookie sheet with an edge}.  Put the ingredients for the base in a bowl and combine until it is crumbly—like fine breadcrumbs.  Work with your hands until it is like bread dough.  Put the dough in the lined pan and smooth out with a spoon.  Prick with a fork. Bake for 20 minutes or until firm and light brown.  Set aside.

 

For the filling….combine the butter, brown sugar, and condensed milk in a pan and heat gently.  Stir constantly, bringing it to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 5-10 minutes while stirring constantly—or until it turns a carmel color and thickened.  Remove from the heat and pour over the cookie base, spread evenly, and then leave it until it is cold.

For the topping….melt each type of chocolate in a separate bowl in the microwave; and then set over a pan of hot water.  Spoon lines of the semi-sweet and milk chocolate over the set caramel filling.

Then—add small amounts of white chocolate by spoonfuls randomly over the lines.  With a skewer drag vertically and then horizontally to make the marbled effect.

EAT!

One word of caution…….I was in such a hurry to devour this treat, I didn’t line the pan!  SO, I couldn’t cut it into lovely slices to show you.  Never fear, though, I just handed out forks and we all sat around the pan and thoroughly enjoyed it—scooping and shoveling!

I’m headed back up the ladder to finish the vintage book page wall……….

Happy Thursday~
