Sweet, Chocolate, Chewy and Bubblicious
This #LetsLunch time we are posting about guilty pleasures. What’s yours?
This is a recipe that has been hidden for more than 10 years. It is from my original handwritten recipe book, and is one of those recipes that (over the years) became invisible. I am unsure of its origin, and I haven’t made it in years. But when I do, it conjures up memories and tastes of years gone by. A taste of a particular time in life. Perhaps it was a baby’s playgroup where someone shared the recipe? Perhaps it was from a Tupperware party in the early days of marriage? Perhaps it was from the school fete where some clever mother had made trays and trays?
Whatever it is, it is definitely a guilty pleasure. A very sweet slice with a delicious chewy and light texture. Fun for a special (guilty!) treat.
So let’s give it a huge revival.
