You Won't Believe How Easy This Is Chocolate Slice

Chocolate Slice

This recipe makes a tray of about 20 slices.  The slice has a scrumptious mouth feel of a deep chocolately cookie texture.

You'll need:

  • 6 oz/180gm butter

  • 3/4 c brown sugar

  • 7 ounces/ 220 gm chocolate hazelnut spread such as Nutella

  • 2 c all purpose/ plain flour

  • 1 c chocolate frosting or hazelnut spread

Now, let's make the slice

  • Before you do anything, turn on the oven to preheat at 360F/ 180C

  • Use a roomy saucepan to make the mixture

  • Into the saucepan place the butter, hazelnut spread and brown sugar. Melt it all together and keep stirring to blend it well. This process takes only a few minutes

  • As soon as the butter has melted, take it off the heat immediately but keep stirring so that the mixture is an even consistency

  • Now, toss in all the flour and stir it in

  • You'll see the mixture clumps together like a large ball of dough

  • Tip it into a baking mold - notice I use a glass oven proof rectangular pyrex dish - and press it down firmly with the back of a wooden spoon

  • Place it in the center of the oven and bake for 25 minutes

  • When cool, top the slice with lashings of chocolate frosting

Easy Recipes Tips

  • I bake slices in oven to table ovenproof bake ware so as to minimize time decanting and arranging baked yummies.  If there is one thing to have a few of it's rectangular ovenproof dishes - Besides slices, I use these to make lasagna, casseroles, baked rice pudding, cobbler, roasts, roasted vegetables...the list goes on

  • There's no need to oil and line the dish as there's enough fat in the batter that it just slides off the pyrex dish

  • The reason you do preheat the oven is so that the oven cavity is at an even temperature and your recipe will cook evenly. So, always turn on the oven to preheat before starting the process

  • What I do, is after baking say a roast, since the oven's hot, I throw in something quick to bake, like this chocolate slice or perhaps a cobbler

  • I know you want to eat the slice NOW! but it really is much tastier with lashings of store bought chocolate frosting or hazelnut spread. But... you do have to wait till it cools completely firstly

  • If these last more than one day, they should be store in an airtight container

  • This slice is just ideal for packing for camping trips. Take a jar of frosting or spread to apply as a topping just before serving.
