    I found your website yesterday and so glad I did this was the first recipe I tried, and its over the top amazing! So simple and indulgently delicious crispy crunchy base, topped with a fudgey chocolate chewy caramel! Going to try it the next time with some dessicated coconut in the base, and some chopped walnuts sprinkled over the caramel. 5 stars, thank you! I m living overseas and can t source the caramels. I m thinking of trying these bars with a homemade caramel sauce but wonder if it would be too runny. Any tips?
