Burnt butter caramel slice

Thanks to this recipe from Cook Republic.

Biscuit base
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup brown sugar
125g butter, melted
Mix together, pour into lined lamington tin and bake until golden. 
Caramel topping
1/3 cup golden syrup
125g butter, melted
1 400g can sweetened condensed milk
Stir together over low heat for about 5-7 minutes (caramel will be smooth and thickened).
Pour caramel over biscuit based and put in oven for 25 mins at 180 degrees - or until caramel is browning in spots (my oven was at least 25 minutes).  Cool for a couple of hours before serving.  Attempt not to eat all at once. 

As you can see, it's a simple recipe, so it just calls out for modifications - what about adding nuts?  I am going to try one batch with salted peanuts and another with unsalted macadamias, will report back.
