Red Velvet Caramel Slice

Red Velvet Caramel SliceThe iconic caramel slice redressed for Valentine’s Day with a chewy red velvet base, a dreamy caramel center, and topped with dark chocolate, chopped white chocolate, and cute little red heart sprinkles.  This Red Velvet Caramel Slice is way better than a box of chocolates!

Red Velvet Caramel SliceI know lots of people don’t particularly look forward to the dreaded V-Day.  Let’s look at the perks though.  Chocolate.  Red Velvet.
