    This stuff sticks like there's no tomorrow! Take the baking paper directions seriously, because mine's firmly stuck to my foil pan. I snuck a bite while it's still warm, and it's definitely fabulous in the taste per minute category.

    We just loved this slice. The only thing I changed was to use salted peanuts because I like the mix of sweet and salty. Thanks so much for a keeper

    The amount of choc chips I used was approximate since I used a bar of semi sweet chocolate (we can't get chips here in NL easily) and the taste was really yummy, but a bit too chewy... did I cook it on too high a heat? did the approximation of the chocolate upset the balance? it tasted great and I will definiately make it again, but I will need to lessen the stickiness of it all with some more accurate guesswork on my available ingredients before it really becomes a favourite. It's NOT a flop, it just needs some work on my part :)Please see my (tough) rating system, a wonderful 3 stars ! Thanks !!!

    YUM!! Would would have thought something as simple as sprinkle, drizzle, bake could taste so good!! Watch the last bit of baking carefully as mine was golden brown and firm just after an extra 10 minutes.

    What an easy, yummy slice - no effort to make yet tastes wonderful. I made it exactly as per the recipe and it was enjoyed by my family and friends over the Christmas break. Definitely will be making this again.


I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=43 and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
