Salty Caramel Popcorn Slice!

Salty Caramel Popcorn Slice!

The long weekend called for it! After a 11.5km run (which felt like a half marathon!!) we settled in for a much needed ‘chill the f#^% out’ day! But before you know it…..

Mum can we have some popcorn while we watch the movie? Mum, what about some chocolate? Mum…..can we have some ice cream for the movie session?

So much over the top sweetness is not something I do in our house on a regular basis so to combine everyone’s request, including my own of needing some salt – this is what came out x

Hope you love it as much as we did 🙂
