Amber's Chocolate Slice recipe 125g unsalted butter + 375g milk/dark chocolate + 150g smooth peanut butter, heated in saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth. Stir in 12 crushed biscuits/cookies (try Butternut Snaps). Pour into tray and pop in the fridge for 20 mins to set, then slice. This is a delicious fudge-style slice, very decadent and hard to resist! I used 2 blocks of chocolate from Aldi, one milk and one dark, and there were a couple of squares missing so that's why it's 375g instead of 400g! But I'm sure it would work just as well with two whole blocks. You might want to line your tray or pan, if you want it to come out easily and neatly. I just hacked a bit out and the rest was easier to remove.
