No Bake Chocolate Caramel Bars

"No-bake n NUT FREE caramel slice 😜. I love this allergy friendly version of one of our most popular desserts, and I pretty much promise you will, too! 🍄 Whilst in an op-shop this afternoon, I had to intersect a room full of squealing humans who found a huntsman in a bag of clothes. Even as I rescued the poor thing off of the floor, an older person tried to stomp it 🥺! Insects and bugs and arachnids have such a valuable place on this earth, and if possible- help them outside instead of ending their life. After my rescue, the sweet lady at the register gave me a huge bargain on my purchase, and thus The spider and I both received some goodwill today ✌🏽"
