Chocolate Peanut Butter Slice

Chocolate and peanut butter – two of my favourite foods, and two of my favourite ingredients. I haven’t always been a peanut butter fan. Growing up I loved Vegemite. For those of you in Australia, you’ll know I’m probably not alone with my love of Vegemite. For those of you not in Australia you will probably never understand.

Chocolate peanut butter slice combines two of my favourite foods - chocolate and peanut butter. Three separate layers of nuts, peanut butter and chocolate.

Vegemite is a fascinating spread – made from a yeast extract. It looks like it’s going to taste like chocolate so you get that feeling of ooh, this will be so good. But then it hits you’re tongue and you’re wondering what on earth you’ve just eaten because it’s incredibly salty and the opposite of what you were expecting. Anyway, give it a try. And video yourself having it for the first time. That’s always a laugh. My favourite way to have it is smothered on toast. I also love a Vegemite sandwich. Vegemite sandwiches were a staple lunch for me during my school years. My sister loved peanut butter and I loved Vegemite. I never really understood what she saw in peanut butter. But, slowly, I think I’m starting to understand. I haven’t yet made it to loving the peanut butter and jam (jelly) sandwich. I only had my first one of those a couple of weeks ago.

But for now, it’s peanut butter and chocolate. Peanut butter cups and this chocolate peanut butter slice. It seems like a lot of ingredients and a lot of steps, but really if you break it down it’s not a difficult recipe to make and the results are definitely worth it.

The slice theoretically will keep for about 3 weeks in the fridge, but mine has never lasted that long because it’s just too tempting to eat.

If you make this I’d love to see your pictures on social media. #sweetsandgreens or leave a comment below.
