This slice couldn’t be easier. Melt. Mix. Set in the refrigerator. An easy no bake recipe made with pantry staples. Chocolate, peanut butter and cornflakes. Rich, decadent and incredibly moreish. Proof that sometimes the best recipes really are the simplest. This one’s a no brainer. Whipped up at a moment’s notice when I’ve promised my family something sweet and I’m short of time. In this case my last hurrah before school goes back tomorrow.

OH MY GOD YUM!!! I know this isn’t the same, but your slice makes me think of honey crackles…
I know what you mean. It’s just occurred to me that spooning the mixture into patty cases would work. Honey crackles with peanut butter topped with chocolate.
Oh yeah – that would work a treat!
Quick and easy, just the way I like my sweets!
