Desperately seeking chocolate as I was flicking through Pinterest the other day and I clicked through to what looked like a pretty delicious chocolate slice thingo. Imagine my disappointment to find the site was no longer in working order...what to do?
Well, what else but make my own version based on an image. Yep. Pretty much what I do all the time. I am often asked where I get all my ideas from and to be honest, it is usually from something I ate, something that sounded good on a menu, or a picture I saw on Instagram, Pinterest, or in a book or mag.
But I digress....chocolate was required and stat. So I roasted the nuts, added a few bits and pieces that I happened to have laying around, melted the chocolate and well, Bob’s your uncle. Completely delish. Completely quick. Completely chocolatey. Get it organised people. You won’t regret it. (And thank you Uncle Bob, whoever you are! You have the best ideas!!)

Place chocolate, cacao butter, vanilla and salt into Thermomix bowl and melt 10 min/37°C/speed soft. Scrape down sides of bowl half way through as needed so that the chocolate melts evenly.
Pour over the dry mix and stir using your spatula. Add the wild orange oil if using at this stage.
