Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice

Pull back the search party.

Don’t send out the rescue chopper or the sniffer dogs.

I’m still here.

I know, I know. It’s been a while since my last recipe post. I’m sorry.

But there have been reasons. Nothing dramatic, nothing worthy of a Netflix original or a Hallmark movie. Just life.

You know the one that gets in the way of doing stuff?!

Sadly, Mummy Made.It doesn’t have top shelf priority in my life. I would love to devote more time to it but it doesn’t pay the bills (or make any profit) and much of my spare time is taken up running, cooking or asking the kids for the 100th time to pick up their towels. But know that I do love creating recipes and I hope that they bring you and your family tasty joy. That’s always been my aim; to conquer food envy and to make sure everyone gets to have their piece of cake at the party.

And if you do want to support Mummy Made.It please share my recipes so even more people can eat #hiddenveggies, buy an eBook or visit my Work with Me page.

This Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice is (or should I say was!) amazing. I was going to call it a Raw slice (better googleability) but technically it’s not as it uses sweet potato puree as a base for the peanut butter filling. So whilst there is technically no cooking in this recipe it does use a pre-cooked ingredient so it’s raw-ish. Either way, it tastes like one piece is not enough (warning; it isn’t).

The base of this Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice is my healthy Chocolate Tiny Teddies, but instead of making cookies it is pushed down into a small loaf pan. As it uses Coconut Oil, the chocolate cookie base will harden as it is left in the fridge. I found the fudgey texture this gives better than the crispiness that baking the base would give it.

The Peanut Butter filling of this Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice is the same as the tasty Peanut Butter Ice Cream. To make the filling more fudge like/hold it’s shape I have added melted coconut oil. You could also use gelatine but this would make it non-vegan (dissolve 1 ½ teaspoons in 3 tablespoons of cream then heat it to dissolve and stir it through). My favourite thing about this filling is the #hiddenveggies. Not surprisingly I have used Sweet Potato but Cauliflower puree can also be used. Just add extra teaspoons of vanilla if using cauliflower as it has a stronger flavour.

The top of this Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice is simply homemade dairy free chocolate. Make it, pour it on and let it set in the fridge….then devour!!!

This Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice could also be made into an ice cream slice/cake. Just don’t add the coconut oil to the filling and set it for 4 hours in the freezer.

This Peanut Butter and Chocolate Slice is secretly healthy!!!! Sweet Potato is used to make a creamy filling over a raw biscuit base.
