Chocolate Peanut Slice


I could eat the base of this slice by itself. Seriously good.

  • 200g butter, cubed
  • 1⁄2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1⁄4 cups plain flour
  • 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
  • 150 grams dark chocolate
  • 75ml cream
  • 3⁄4 cup icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees. Line a slice tin with baking paper.

To make the base, cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in the egg, then add the flour and peanut butter and mix until combined. Spread in an even layer in the tin. Bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the tin.

To make the topping, melt the broken-up chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Mix well, then sift in the icing sugar and mix to combine. Cool to warm, and pour over the slice. Refrigerate. Makes 12 pieces.
