Caramel Fingers!!!

CARAMEL FINGERS


I love trying new recipes. Sometimes we tend to fear before trying the recipe and think that what if it doesn't work! If it doesn't work, it doesn't work..its no big deal! Practice makes a man perfect and it will work when you'll try again. Patience they say is always fruitful!!!


Having nothing to do, I was bored the other day. Flipping through the pages of many recipe books that I have, this particular recipe caught my attention. I decided to try it and the replication was pretty awesome. My father gobbled down two at a go ;)





CARAMEL FINGERS

Caramel Fingers are made of  three layers- biscuit base, delectable caramel and melted chocolate. Soft biscuit base, gooey and fudgy caramel will make you want to dig into this treat again and again. I have sprinkled salt over caramel topping to bring out its flavor which makes it all the more yum! This soft treat will become a favorite in your house and among your guests! Do give it a try :)
