LeeJ - I find this sort of slice always ends up a bit to dry for me, but not this one!  I undercooked it slightly but it will firm up that last bit in the fridge and be beautiful I do think! As you can tell, we couldn't resist, it was iced warm, and served up. A lovely slice, will definitely make again, too simple, and very yum!
Well, let it set in the fridge, and it is now the PERFECT take along slice. Easy to slice, looks fab, tastes great. I'm going to pop some crushed scotch fingers in the next batch as I think it could be the perfect base for a hedgehog! 

maddy - Gosh, this slice transported me back to my childhood parties....this would be the first thing I would take to eat. Thanks for bringing back the memories Dede! 

Amanda - Great little treat, this one! Baking day today and now happy kids, thanks!

johnro -  this has become our favourite choc slice after making the recipe from Day to Day Cookery for years - similar version to that posted by Narelle with the addition of an egg.  I prefer the moistness of this one - thanks a bunch Dede!!!!

No problem guys, I do cook mine longer than 15 minutes as I only cook at 150, so I am not 100% sure of the cooking time but I like mine to be pretty crunchy so I leave it for longer (Probably 25 min) I will take a photo and add tomorrow if they don't get eaten in the mean time.

Thanks Cookie1, Nice to see the word 'Another', as I  have not contributed many recipes as yet, I have mainly been stalking the forum and getting recipes. But now I am more comfortable with my TM I am keen to convert some favorite family recipes. I haven't tried converting main meals yet though as I'm not sure of cooking times etc but I'm sure that will change soon. My goal is to convert at least 1 main meal recipe before I reach my 5 stars.

Just wondering if this one is similar to The Easy Peasy Chocolate Slice, found here:

http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=4953.0

Ummm was going to make the other one (have made a few times now), but now I can't decide which one to make.  mmmmmm

Hi Debbiebil lg,
Does look to be very similar. Ingredients are the same just quantity different. You might have to toss the 2 in the air and decide with the one that lands face side up Lol. (Might take a few tries)

Finally got to making this tonight, I find this sort of slice always ends up a bit to dry for me, nut not this one!  :D

I undercooked it slightly, but it will firm up that last bit in the fridge and be beautiful I do think! As you can tell, we couldn't resist, it was iced warm, and served up  ;D

A lovely slice, will definatly make again, too simple, and very yum!
