Salted Caramel Slices

Caramel slices are something that I bake when I am in need of a real sweet fix. I tend to make a big tray and then keep it in the fridge so I can greedily pick at them. I have been a fan of salted caramel for a while now (like a lot of other people) and I thought it might be a good idea to combine the two.
    My usual caramel slice recipe is delicious, but the caramel seems to never set properly. As enjoyable as it is to eat the gooey mess, its so hard to cut up, so I thought I would see if I could find a different method to try and solve the problem.
    I was originally just going to search for a salted caramel that I could add to my slices but then I found this http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/salted_caramel_39300 salted millionaires shortbread recipe from Simon Rimmer. I tried this instead and I have to say it worked a real treat.


   Boiling the caramel instead of heating it slowly and then baking it (as my original recipe suggested) seemed to make the caramel a lot firmer. I did have to add more salt, but I think that was just my taste preference. All in all they were delicious.
