Here's another recipe that I posted way back when I first started my blog: my all time favorite chocolate slice. Just like yesterdays post I used my brand spanking new camera to provide you with photos that are at least a million times better than those on the original post. Enjoy :)
When I was a kid my Mum used to make this slice all the time (without a few ingredients that I have since added in, and with sprinkles!) so you could definitely say that this is a favorite of mine. It's also the first thing I ever learnt to bake by myself. I must have been about 11 or so and Mum was in the kitchen watching me. I misread the recipe and added 20 g of butter instead of 200 g. Oops. But I got there in the end and I have never made that mistake again.
This is a REALLY simple slice. It takes next to no time and it always comes out tasting wonderful.
Chocolate Fudge SliceMakes at least 16 pieces
250 g (9 oz) Vanilla cookies
4 Tbsp cocoa
1 Cup light sweetened condensed milk
200 g (7 oz) butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 Cup shredded coconut
1/2 Cup chopped peanuts
1/2 Cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 Cup cream
1 1/2 Cup icing sugar
1. Put the cookies into a food processor and whiz to a crumb. I like to not take it too far so that there are still a few chunks of biscuit in there).
2. Combine the cookie crumbs, coconut, and peanuts in a large bowl.
3. Melt the butter in a saucepan together with the condensed milk and cocoa. When it is all melted nicely and getting hot remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
4. Mix into the cookie mixture and pour into a lined slice tin. Refrigerate until firm, ice with chocolate icing* and refrigerate again until icing is set. Cut into slices and store in a sealed container in the fridge.
Chocolate icing: Melt the chocolate chips into the cream. Stir in sifted icing sugar. Spread over the top of the slice.
