peanut butter and chocolate slice


Ever since I had my first Reese's peanut butter cup a few months ago, I cant stop dreaming about them. At a couple of bucks a pop I thought maybe I can somehow incorporate the flavours into some sort of baking to extend it out a bit.

So I tried to mesh together a chocolate caramel Slice. I based my recipe on PJs one but then changed it up a little.

Peanut Butter and chocolate slice.

Base:
1/2c brown sugar
125g melted butter
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2c cocoa
1 tsp baking powder

Sift dry ingredients then mix together in a bowl. Press into a lined and greased square baking tin. Place into oven at 180 for 10-13 minutes.

Filling:
1/2 can Condensed milk
2 Tbsp peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
30g butter

Melt these all together in a pot over a stove at a moderate heat until fully combined. About 3 minutes on a low to moderate heat. Take off heat and poor filling over the base once it has finished in the oven. Put back into the oven for 5 minutes.

Topping.
100-200gram cooking chocolate (depending on how much chocolate you like!)
50 grams butter

Melt together until combined and then poor over the filling.
Wait until fully cool and set in fridge before cuting into squares.



So good! Kids Loved them

I'm kinda glad we can't get Reeses Peanut Butter Cups here - I'd be twice the size! This looks like a fab recipe - definitely keen to give it a try!
