Simplest choc caramel and pecan slice in the world - done in less than an hour!

Those Filipinos love their chocolate.  They love anything sweet and the more sugar and syrup, the better.    I made this quickie slice one day to take into my team because a) they deserve it!  b) I knew they'd love it and c) I saw graham crackers and I couldn't resist (We don't get those in Australia easily!).

Of course if you can't get graham crackers, use whatever biscuit you like - if you there's never enough chocolate you could use choc ripple cookies or try some good ol' milk arrowroot biscuits with a teaspoon of allspice and a tablespoon of honey mixed in with the melted butter.

You literally chuck this together, it does not take more than 10 minutes to get it in the oven!!   They are rich, you don't need much and they are perfect to share!  This slice makes at least 24 squares or rectangles, depending how big you like to cut eat them.

250g biscuits of choice 
100g butter, melted
1.5 cups pecans
1.5 cups chocolate chips/buttons
1 tin condensed milk

Preheat oven to 190 degrees c
Line a tin with baking paper or foil, grease well.
 Process your biscuts in a food processor or place in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin until like breadcrumbs.

Mix through butter until moist like sand.  Depending on your biscuits you may need more/less butter.

Press into the bottom of your tin.

Sprinkle over pecans evenly, then choc chips.  Lastly pour over condensed milk, ensure it's as even as possible.

Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until the condensed milk becomes caramel-like

 Leave to cool for about 20 minutes, then turn out, and slice.

Store in airtight container for up to a week in refrigerator.  You, your family and friends won't believe how something so delicious is so simple!
