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.

Our current lunch box set up for the primary school kids

Kids Konserve lunch box review
I am often asked what do I use for a lunch box for my kids. The photo above shows the lunch box set up we are currently using for the primary school kids. We use:

This works well for us as we can:

  • add whole pieces of fruit if needed
  • the kids can have cut up fruit and veg for brain food
  • items can be made the night before and stay fresh
  • items can be easily kept separate
  • kids know what is for lunch and what is for recess
  • they can take single items out as needed
  • it can keep food cold
  • items don’t get crushed
  • and it is waste free
