Faced with an impromptu afternoon tea at a friend's house, and no local shop open because of a public holiday, I was forced to get creative with the contents of my cupboard. Thus the easiest (and tastiest) slice in the world was made. This slice is soft, chocolatey, gooey, and looks gourmet. Surprisingly, there are only 4 ingredients - yes you read that right - to make these beauties.
Ingredients 500g sweet plain biscuits (I used Belvita)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
100 grams icing sugar
100 grams butter
Blitz your biscuits until they are a fine powder. Add to a bowl.
Melt 80g of butter and 1 tbsp of cocoa in a pot. Make a well in the centre of the biscuit flour and pour the chocolate butter in. Stir well; if the mixture is a bit dry add a dash of milk. Have a taste - my biscuits were very sweet so I didn't add sugar, if yours are plain, add a sweetener.
Pour the mix into a baking paper-lined tray and bake in a 170 degrees Celsius oven for 20-25 minutes.
Once the top starts to firm up, remove and set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the sifted icing sugar, the remaining melted butter, and 2 tsp of cocoa. Pour the runny icing over the top of the still-warm slice. Set aside and allow to cool.
Once cooled, sprinkle with the remaining cocoa, cut into squares and serve. Delicious and ridiculously easy!
Thank you that's so nice of you to say I was pleased with how they came out! And yes so many options, you could even ommit to cocoa and add mixed berrys or cinnaom and apple! The choices are endless :) .
