Chocolate Slice with Almonds & Pistachio Nuts
- ¾ cup Chocolate Melts
- 1 Tbsp Cocoa
- 200g chcolate Krispie biscuits, roughly chopped
- ½ cup shredded Coconut
- ¾ cup Raisins
- 70g Pistachio nuts, toasted
- 70g whole blanched Almonds, toasted
- ¾ can Condensed Milk
- 100g Butter
- Icing (optional)
- 75g Dark Chocolate bits
- 3 Tbsp Cream
- 1 tsp Butter, softened
Line a loaf tin with baking paper so that the paper comes up and over the edges of the tin. This makes the slice easier to lift out.
In a large mixing bowl, place the chocolate bits, cocoa, Krispie biscuits, coconut, raisins, pistachio nuts and almonds. Set aside.
Place the condensed milk and butter in a saucepan. Gently heat on low until the butter has melted. Remove the pan from the heat.
Pour the condensed milk mixture over the dry ingredients. Mix until combined then pour into the loaf tin. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight.
To make the icing, place the chocolate and cream in a mixing bowl and microwave for 40 seconds. Add the butter and stir until it has melted and the mixture is combined.
Lift the slice from the tin and spread the icing (if you want it) on top of the slice. Leave to set. Cut into slices to serve.
