Super Chocolatey Cookie Slice

This slice is, quite simply, chocolate perfection! One bite and you are transported to a place reserved for those moments when you need all the stresses of the day to melt away and the healing soothing power of chocolate to take over.

Screaming children, bad hair days and difficult bosses suddenly, for that moment, don’t seem quite so overpowering.

You have to taste it and then I promise you’ll get it. It is so so scrummy and delicious with just the right amount of moisture to crunch ratio that a truly great cookie should have.

Then to finish it is coated with a silky smooth chocolatey topping that just melts in your mouth.

I used my favourite RealFoodSource Coconut sugar chocolate drops for this recipe – I absolutely love the taste of them but they are so convenient and make this recipe super easy to whip up in an instant. I always have a stock of them in the cupboard. :)

Once set you can store the slice either in the fridge, on the counter or in the cupboard (or even better hidden somewhere!) However, if you do store them in the fridge, I know that weather has been up and down a lot lately, remove about 1 hr before eating for the best flavour.
