We were at the supermarket check out on Monday and Sylvia found there was a jar of Nutella in the trolley. I acted all innocent. But she was onto me. Anyway I had an excuse. It is World Nutella Day today. When I told her yesterday that it was all used up in a slice she frowned. Until she tasted a piece. Then all was forgiven. Yes, it is so delicious that it is even better than eating Nutella from the jar!
chocolate crackles; from a vegan version of the American rice krispies slice; and from a healthier chocolate almond rice bubble slice.
I thought of mixing chocolate with the topping but we only had a 70% dark chocolate which might have swamped it. It did occur to me that to make this slice really decadent, I could top it with half the mixture from this nutella fudge. I have also wondered if it might work with chocolate and cream/butter instead of nutella. However then I think these are crazy thoughts because this slice is so good that it is hard to stop at one square.
I am sending the slice to The Baking Explorer (and Cakeyboi) for Treat Petite with the theme of Love in the Air.
