Well this recipe lived up to its name. This is really, really easy.
Half way through doing the washing up last night I realised I had nothing for morning tea for kids lunch boxes. I was so tired and did not feel like driving to the shops or baking and then I remembered reading about this recipe from Bill Granger’s ‘Feed Me Now’.
I put on a saucepan with some butter to melt and tipped the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Stirred in the butter and pressed it into a tin. Baked it and it was done. I’m ashamed to point out exactly how much we have eaten since last night as I believe most of the eating was done by me. But I thought it is a good testament to how incredibly delicious it really is.
I have blocks of Lindt 50% dark chocolate stocked up in my pantry and I just used one of those which is 100g. It was perfect even though the recipes calls for 150g.
