Nutty Chocolate Slice

It was a strictly indoors day today. Rain tumbled and fell and just when it couldn't possibly bucket down any harder... it fell some more. While the boys ran riot and turned the place upside down, I casually relented to 'go with the flow'. And by nine o'clock this morning, I'd whipped up a tasty little something for the snack container. I found this nutty beauty in a Woolworths Fresh catalogue, with a whole bunch of other Easter themed goodies. But this one really took my eye, with it's pretty purple Cadbury background.

The flavours come together beautifully. And what I really love is there is no fussing with mixers and beaters or creaming butter and sugar etc... I'll be adding this one to the favourites roll. Super simple. Super quick to make. Super, super, sweet.

Joining in with Faith Hope & a whole lotta Love for 'Snap It' and today's topic of: Sweet.

Nutty Chocolate Slice

Preparation time: 20 minutes   Cooking time: 25 minutes

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup self-rasising flour
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup caster sugar
100g butter, melted
150g milk chocolate baking chips 
(I used Cadbury, as per recipe)
395g can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup toasted hazelnuts

Combine the sifted flours in a bowl with the coconut, sugar and butter
Stir to combine
Press into the base of a greased and base-lined slice pan (28 x 18cm)
Bake in a moderate oven 180 (160 degrees fan-forced) for 10 mins
or until lightly browned and cooked through
Scatter chocolate chips evenly over the base
Pour over the condensed milk
Top with hazelnuts
Return to the oven and cook for 25 mins or until golden brown
Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack, before slicing

  1. I'm salivating and I really really need to pull my finger out and provide some yumminess like this for my deprived tribe. I'm afraid its chic chip cookies and not much else from me in the baking arena :-)

  3. Never mind being sugar free, I could so go a slice of that right now.

    We had some much needed rain fall today, I heard our little one outside squealing in it before I saw it...seems he loves dancing in the rain as much as his mama does :)

    Hope you and your boys get a chance to venture outdoors tomorrow.

  12. Oh my giddy Aunt, this sounds amazing! I am a sucker for condensed milk. I love the stuff! I even asked Chris to check, before we moved to HK, that we could buy it here (phew, we can) cos otherwise I was shipping over a whole box full! I might make this right now......
