These are delicious. They are chewy and chocolatey.
After my daughter finished the last of the slice yesterday, she came up to me and told me we have a huge problem in the house, I asked what was wrong, and she replied we have no more of the chocolate slice in the refrigerator. This was not good, imagine life without this, you will understand once you've tried it. But as the great mum that I am, I whipped up a batch the very next day. Crisis over, there was calm in the house again.
This is so easy to make, only has a few ingredients and tastes so good. You need to try this, especially now that you have oats in the house.
Makes about 20 slices
170g unsalted butter
½ cup + 1 tablespoon brown sugar, firmly packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 tablespoon milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
⅓ cup creamy peanut butter
Grease an 20cm square baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter. Add sugar and mix until the sugar is well incorporated. Add vanilla, oats, and milk. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
Press half of the mixture in the prepared pan.
In a small saucepan or in the microwave, melt together the chocolate chips and peanut butter, stirring frequently until smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture on top of the oat layer and spread with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle the rest of the oat mixture on top, lightly pressing into the chocolate.
Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. Cut into bars or small slices.
