Simply Amazing Date Caramel Slice
Yumm!! This delicious treat is not soooo naughty and super fine when the need for a little sweet joy creeps into your life.
A perfect way to wean yourself off those other nasty white sugar things you may have been indulging in. Certainly not for every day but amazing on occasions!!
For those of you who I have been promising this recipe to for a while I am sorry but it is finally here, and worth the wait.
* Now to do this recipe justice you really do need a high powered blender or you will not get the caramel texture but give it a go in an ordinary one if that is all you have.
