Chocolate Nut Slice
« on: July 14, 2020, 06:58:30 am »
Chocolate Nut Slice
Ingredients
125g butter
125g dark chocolate
125g brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
125g plain flour
250g nuts
Preparation
Set oven to 180* and prepare a 28 x 18cm tray. (7" x 11")
Place the nuts in the bowl and use turbo to chop to the texture you would like. Set aside.
Do the same with the chocolate. (I actually used choc bits and didn't blitz them) Set aside.
Melt the chocolate and butter on about 50*, until melted.
Add the brown sugar and vanilla.  Speed 2/3 until the sugar is dissolved.
Add flour. Mix on  :: until almost combined, adding eggs as you go.
Add nuts and  :: until combined. I actually stirred mine through with a spatula while in the bowl.
Place into the prepared tray and bake 40-50 minutes, or until firm.

I found this recipe in a file I hadn't looked at for years. In fact I had forgotten about it. You could use any nuts you had on hand. I used a mixture. Next time I will use all peanuts as I find peanuts and chocolate are a great combination. I cut it into 24 pieces and each piece has about 140 calories in it.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I like the idea of using peanuts Cookie, especially if salted, would go so well with the chocolate.  Will try this one in next week or so.  :)
