I based this recipe on one I found on the very lovely blog Life In The Country. I have just completed a Blog Boost on this blog and while spending time looking at the blog, I was drawn very quickly to “A Farmer’s Wife’s” recipes. As you may expect there is very much a country flavour to her recipes, you can see them all here Country Recipes. I haven’t cooked a stew in years so think I will give her a Winter Stew ago next!

NB: I made an error when typing up the Beef Goulash recipe last week and it should have said 2 cups of flour, not 4 tsps! Sorry about that.

Easy Chocolate Slice Recipe - Mixing

    1. Press into a lined baking tray. I didn’t have a small tray so just used a portion of a larger tray I had. It ended up being about 25cm x 20cm.

  1. Bake for about 20 – 25 minutes. The slice is a bit like biscuits – it hardens up as it cools.

    How funny. When I saw the title of this blog post, Nic, immediately thought of Farmers Wife’s recipe – she sent it through to me for a cake stall suggestion recipe a month or two back, and I have found myself making it time and time again – it is such an easy one for lunchboxes and afternoon teas!

  • Marita June 27, 2011 at 7:57 am

    These are so tasty – I made them with the girls yesterday and they slice up just nicely for lunch box treats. Thank you :)

    Being first day of the school holidays in Queensland the kids were asking to cook. How easy, and great it can mixed by hand – my three boys were sitting on the kitchen floor with the big plastic bowl and a wooden spoon each. We’ve got a batch in the oven now for morning tea- thanks.

    As soon as i read this post i knew i wanted to make this for my daughter’s birthday party on the weekend. It was such a hit – so easy to make and so yummy. One of my nephews kept asking me to put out more and took some home with him. I didn’t have a good easy chocolate slice recipe before now but i think this is definitely my new “go to”.

    Thanx Nicole.
