Chewy chocolate slice

Finally, this recipe worked!  I have made a few 'chewy' chocolate slices now and none of them have turned out chewy but were instead dry and crumbly.  With the addition of rolled oats, this slice is chewy and delicious and extremely easy to make.



  • 125g butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbspn cocoa
  • 2 Tbspn hot water
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/3 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 Tbspn cocoa
  • 2 Tbspn hot water
1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celcius (fan forced).  Line a slice tin (18cm x 28cm) with baking paper. 

2. In a large bowl, whisk butter and sugar together.  

3. Add egg, cocoa & 2 Tbspn hot water and whisk until very well combined. 

4. Add plain flour self-raising flour.  Stir to combine.  

5. Add oats and stir through.  Pour into tin and press down evenly.

6. Bake in oven for 20 mins.

7. While the slice is baking, make the icing.  Add all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.  When slice is removed from the oven, spread the icing over it immediately so it melts across the whole slice.  Refrigerate to set then cut into slices and watch it disappear!
