Chocolate Caramel Slice Recipe

When I was living overseas I had an amazing recipe for a chocolate caramel slice, that I used to make when I had those sweet cravings or guests that I wanted to make something different for them.  The recipe was on a little bit of paper stuck in one of my old well used recipe books.  When I made the move back to New Zealand a few years back it was one of the things that got lost in the move.  When I had those moments of craving here I would just pop into the local cafe and buy a slice.  After procrastinating for a long time I finally decided to try some recipes I found on line and make one at home for the guests dropping by this week.
