Just perfect for this mini summer (that's what the BOM is calling this heatwave), this no bake slice is quick to make and tastes so good chilled and straight from the fridge.
No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter SliceIngredients:
1 pkt Anzac biscuits (or 200g homemade)
375g milk chocolate
150g smooth peanut butter
Line a slice tray with baking paper. Roughly crush Anzac biscuits with a rolling pin. Place butter, broken chocolate and peanut butter in a microwave safe dish and cook on high 1 minute. Stir to combine. Continue cooking in 30 second bursts, stirring well between each one, until everything is melted and well combined. Stir in the crushed biscuits Pour into a lamington tray lined with baking paper and place into the fridge for 30 minutes to set. Cut into small slices to serve.
I used to use Aldi ANZAC biscuits if I didn't have any homemade, but they've been discontinued. Butternut Snaps make a good substitute.
To keep the cost of this slice down I use biscuit crumbs I've saved in a Tupperware container in the freezer. I just empty the crumbs from the bottom of the biscuit jar into the container each time it is refilled. When the container is full the crumbs are ready to be used in slices or as a biscuit base. This means the slice is slightly different every time it's made, but it is always good.
I use choc melts bought on sale when they are half price.. I usually buy enough to last a year when they are $2.50 or less a packet.
The butter and peanut butter are from Aldi.
Double the biscuit crumbs (400g or two packets of biscuits) and then divide the mixture in half to double the recipe without compromising the flavour of the slice.
I keep this slice in the freezer, it's easier to cut frozen and it lasts longer in our house if it is out of sight.
