I recently had the luxury of slipping out of the house on my own to pick up a few things from the supermarket. Instead of having to keep an eagle eye on an inquisitive toddler whilst straining under the weight of the growing baby boy strapped to me, I was able to slow down and enjoy the experience a little more. Wandering down the first ailse at Aldi, I discovered this:
I was a little excited to say the least. Initially I though it was a limited release flavour, but it’s part of the normal Whittakers range! As soon as I saw it, I knew I just had to use it in my favourite slice recipe. There has been a few varieties now, Picnic Slice, Caramello Slice, Peppermint Slice and this one is certainly up there with the best flavour combinations.
In the past I have simply sprinkled coconut over the top of these slices, but this time you do need to use more chocolate *sigh* and melt it down to use as icing. The combination of peanut and chocolate flavours with the sweetness of the condensed milk and then the crunch of the biscuits make this slice amazing.
Learn how to make this Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice here:
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice
- 1 block of Whittakers Peanut Butter Chocolate
- 1 pack of Marie biscuits - crushed
- 200 ml of condensed milk half a tin
- 125 g of butter - melted
- 1 x 200g block of Cadbury Milk Chocolate - for topping.
- Line a slice tray with baking paper - make sure you leave enough so it hangs over the edges.
- Crush biscuits and pour into a large bowl. You can use a food processor, or just whack them with a rolling pin like I do!
- Melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave - I cook it for 30 second spurts and mix in between.
- Add the melted butter and chocolate as well as the condensed milk to the crushed biscuits and using a large metal spoon, stir to combine.
- Pour mixture into the lined slice tin, and use the back of the spoon to press down and flatten the surface.
- Melt the block of milk chocolate - using the same microwave method as before.
- Pour melted chocolate over the top of the slice, pop it into the fridge for 2 hours to set, cut into small pieces and enjoy!
So there you have it, another delicious variation of this amazing and versatile recipe. Enjoy!
