Chewy chocolate slice

Do you ever have one of those days where your diary is empty and you can do whatever you please? I had one of those mornings yesterday. I was dreaming of wearing PJs, baking cakes, and doing lots of nothing with Lulu. First up was making choc-chip slice. So I got out all the ingredients and we started cooking.

Lulu doses this cute thing where she wants to be part of everything, so she’ll drag {screach!} a stool over to where ever she needs be, and climbs up and she’s there. She’ll make toast {read: eat peanut butter from the jar}, do the washing up {read: put water EVERYWHERE} and make cakes with me {read: taste test the batter over and over and over again}.

It was meant to be a chewy choc-chip slice with coconut in it. But we had no coconut. And then when I add the melted butter to the mix, it melted all the chocolate and it was all just a bit of a mess.

And it was at that point, when I was contemplating throwing it all out, then I remembered that I didn’t have a free day at all, and that I was 14 minutes away from an appointment that took 20 minutes to drive to.

Long story short: we made it to the appointment, and the slice was amazing. Like seriously, I think it would be better than the original recipe {but of course I’ll make that later on just to be sure!}.

So without any further a-do, I bring you chewy chocolate slice.
