Crazy Bar Slice

Today has been a lovely lovely day - believe me it deserves 2 x lovely's....if not 3!
To start with Mr B and I had an RDO today, absolutely everything about having a 3 day weekend kicked off with a sleep in is good! Secondly, we finally got Mr B's taxes done and it was good news so he shouted me out to a beautiful lunch at a local pub called The Ocean Child. Neither of us had been there before, but we will definitely be returning - it had so much character and the meals were incredible!

And last, but certainly not least, we got to meet Bubba Chopper and have a bit of a snuggle, he is a gorgeous little man! Plus it was nice to catch up with the new parents - we are so proud and happy for them!

So verdict, today has been a 3 x lovely day....and if Mr B makes me a cup of tea and feeds me hot apple and strawberry crumble with cream while I sit in a toasty warm bed reading a book it might even stretch to 4 x lovelys!!!

And do you know what a day of 3 or even 4 x lovely day potential deserves? Some Crazy Bar Slice!!!
This slice, oozing with caramel, studded with mini M&M's and topped with a chewy ANZAC like layer will have you lost for words and it will become a 5 x Mmmmmmmmm day!!!

For the crust you will need:

300g butter
1.5 cups oats
1.25 cups brown sugar
1.5 cups flour
1.5 teaspoon baking soda

For the topping you will need:

1 1/2 - 2 cups thick caramel topping / caramel sauce
6 tbspns plain flour
1 pkt (roughly 1 1/2 - 2 cups) of mini M&Ms

Preheat oven to 160C

Melt butter in the microwave. Stir through the oats, brown sugar, flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well.

Grease and line a slice pan. I use a square cake pan. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 10 - 15 mins.

In the mean time, combine the caramel sauce / topping and the remaining flour.

When the crust is done, scatter with 1 cup of the mini M&M's. Pour over the caramel mix.

Combine the remaining crust mix with the remaining mini M&M's. Scatter over the top of the caramel.

Bake again for 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan and cutting.
