New Zealand Jaffa Slice

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

Jaffa's are a New Zealand orange coated chocolate confectionery. Jaffas are a small round sweet with a soft chocolate centre and hard orange flavoured candy on the outside. Please note that I had to use the description of 'chocolate chips' as Recipezaar doesn't identify Jaffa's. You will need to change the 'chocolate chips' back to Jaffa's for this recipe. Also our cup measure larger usually 250ml. I haven't tried this recipe yet but wanted to post it here for any Kiwi's out there that may be able to find Jaffa's.

A very easy to make slice. A little sweet for our taste but was well received by the ladies I served it to. Another 'keeper' for me. :)
