Chocolate Peanut Butter Slice

Chocolate Peanut Butter Slice

These bars are a wonderful, gooey slice of chocolate peanut heaven! So moreish it will be impossible to resist a second third fourth!!!




Will I get messy making these? Yes Probably! Will it be worth it? Yes definitely! Will I find them moist, delicious and positively moreish? Absolutely!!!! 



The best bit about these is that they last for ages and they mature and get even more delicious! Only trouble with this is keeping your people’s mitts off them long enough to discover this!! 



They are so just so moist and irresistibly delectable with the consistency of a brownie and a hidden layer of peanut butter – scrummy!




The layering can be a little tricky and therefore messy as the ingredients are quite sticky, if you’re having trouble put your spoon under warm water a couple of times whilst pressing the chocolate batter unto place and you’ll find it will stop sticking. You should get good coverage on the top but don’t worry too much it will expand as it heats and join together.




I like to make my own peanut butter for these - when I get a moment I will share the process in detail – mainly because I don’t like excessive additives like palm oil, salt and sugar. However, it can be quite time consuming so when I don’t have time Meridian produce a peanut butter that is made 100% from organic roast peanuts that tastes great.




So here goes – hope you have fun making and especially eating these……… :)
