Caramel Hedgehog

Another winner from the Magnificently Simple Marvellous Slice Recipes Cook Book.

Sigh. I suppose it is obvious that I am getting fatter as I work my way through the recipes in this book.

Mum and my sister E asked for this recipe the instant they tasted these, which is a sure sign of a great recipe.

125gm butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 table spoon golden syrup
3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 packet of crushed Marie biscuits

Melt the butter, brown sugar, golden syrup and sweetened condensed milk together in a suacepan.

Caramel 2

Bring to the boil, add the vanilla extract then take off the heat and leave to cool slightly.

Mix the caramel mixture into the crushed biscuits then press into a lined slice tray.

Caramel 3

Refrigerate slightly before marking into squares, then leave in fridge until set.
