Is there such a thing as leftover chocolate, you may be asking yourself?
Well, when you decorate cakes for chocoholics and you’re creating a new fudge, you find you have boxes and packets of various chocolates tumbling out of your pantry! If there is no such thing as uneaten chocolate in your world then maybe you may have a half can of condensed milk then, most likely from whipping up a batch of no churn ice cream?
If you are anything like me, using up odds and sods in the kitchen will satisfy your slightly odd compulsion to finish half open packets nicely. Not to mention that Easter time is just around the corner and my Leftover Chocolate Slice will help you rid your cupboards of unused chocolate egg shells and the choccies within, when your kids (or Hungry Hubby!) has eaten their fill, in the raw, as it were. Pin this image for your forthcoming hour of need, chocolate coated need…
Just look at that chocolatey goodness. And it’s just a case of melting, stirring, pressing into a pan and leaving to set. Oh and bashing up some digestives but that’s always fun so we’ll allow one extra little step. This slice is made in about 10 minutes and only takes an hour in the fridge before you can dive in and start devouring it.
The texture is definitely a little fudgy thanks to the condensed milk and crushed biscuits. You can add whatever chocolate bars or sweets you have to hand but the combo I use here is always very well received. When I gave Hungry Hubby a batch to take to work so my army of taste testers could give me their verdict, I was utterly delighted that the batch of 50 barely lasted past mid-morning and they sent me a picture of the empty cake tin before the end of the working day!
Although I fear I’ve created a monster as this Leftover Chocolate Slice is so addictive, I fear I am going to have to source me a job lot of cheap chocolate to keep my hoard of taste testers satisfied 😉
