Well my friends it is nearly time for the kids to go back to school. I am looking forward to that. Clancy starts e-Kindy this year so he will be at school and out of my hair for a little while each day – I am beyond excited – I might be in the light at the end of the toddler tunnel, finally!
I thought you might be looking for some easy lunchbox cooking. Get in and whip up a triple batch of this yummy chocolate slice – ready for the school lunches. It freezes really well. I posted this recipe back in January last year, so here it is again if you are looking for something easy to cook over the weekend…
I first tasted this delicious chocolate slice when I was a Govie down in the Bourke area. Di Ridge had made it for a school event and I have never looked back. It was second to none and I couldn’t get enough of it. It is lovely, soft and a bit chewy. Such a winner with the children too and would be great to freeze for school lunch-boxes. So pop your apron on pet and lets get cooking.
Di’s Chocolate Slice
250g marg or butter (melted)
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups SR flour
2 cups coconut
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pop everything into a large mixing bowl and mix really well with a wooden spoon or any spoon that tickles your fancy really.
Grease and line a lamington tin. Pour in mixture and spread out.
Cook for about 20 minutes at 180ºC
Ice while warmish and top with coconut or sprinkles.
Put in fridge and cut once cool.
Di also makes the Poppy Seed Salad Dressing that I am always banging on about. You can purchase her delicious salad dressing HERE. But careful… it is very addictive.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Are you doing anything exciting?
I was hoping to visit Mrs Savvy B but not sure if that will eventuate.
