CHOCOLATE MAPLE SLICES
COOKBOOK: SUPER FOOD IDEAS -August 2007
The sweetened condensed milk , boiled, makes 'dulce de leche' and for anyone who has a sweet tooth, this is magic!
A rich caramel fudge that I don't think anyone has ever disliked! Topped with dark smooth chocolate….well say no more!
Yes, very rich in the calorie department, but cutting the bars into bite-sizes will reduce the intake (that’s if you don't go for seconds!)
Hope you enjoy
