Easy Chocolate Slice Recipe

Easy-Chocolate-Slice-RecipeI 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.
