It appears I am on something of a slice bent at present. (Or a “bar bent”, if you speak North American. I will admit that, for once, American terminology wins this round because I do so love alliteration.)
This Caramel Coconut Slice is insanely ridiculously stupidly amazingly enticingly gooey crispy chewy easy-to-make rich sweet layered gorgeous awesomeness.
Does this treat fall on the “yep sweet this is sweet hello sweetness you’re so sweet” side of the spectrum? Yes. But, sometimes, that is exactly what you need in the middle of week that has seen you duck into the work bathroom to cry with homesickness more times than you’d like to admit.
Sweetness = not crying as much. It is a good equation.
I could keep writing about how much my workmates loved this slice; I could wax even more lyrical about the divine way the sugar caramelises with crunchy nuanced depth against pockets of melting chocolate within.
But, instead, I’m going to leave this here, because last night my oldest, oldest, oldest friend from Australia arrived in town with two other friends, and I’m heading out to show them some of the magic Toronto has to offer.
Take that, homesickness. Australia has come to me this week, and I’m so happy I might burst.
