Do you love Nutella? I love Nutella. Its not something that I indulge in very often, but I always have a jar in the cupboard. I quite like it spread on plain biscuits like Malted Milk Biscuits or Social Teas. Don't judge me, lol
Here today I am using it in a fabulous slice/bar that would be a great addition to picnic baskets or lunch buckets . . .
These have a lovely fudgy consistency . . . almost being a cross between a brownie and a cookie . . .
The batter is really simple to make and goes together very quickly. It also bakes in quick time. You do have to work super fast when you take them out of the oven to get those chocolate jazzies popped on top while the slice is still hot and they can melt and adhere together.
What is a Chocolate Jazzie? Well, it's a milk chocolate button, topped with multi coloured non-pareil cake decorations. You could use anything you want really . . . just so long as you pop it on while the squares are still hot from the oven.
Thinly sliced Mars Bars or Snickers Bars would be scrumptious. As would pieces of a chocolate orange, or even just milk chocolate chips or buttons. Whatever you fancy really, in the chocolate line, would work great!
These would also be a great addition to your Elevensies cuppa, or for an afterschool treat. Oh heck, I can't think of any time these wouldn't be welcomed!
Moreishly scrumptiously chewy and rich . . . with a hint of whatever floats your boat, and nutella on top . . . these spell winner, winner, winner!
*Chocolate Jazzie Slices*Makes 16 slices
I hope you will take the opportunity to bake these this weekend and that when you do you will pop back to let me know how very much you enjoyed them! Bon Appetit!
