Chocolate Pecan Slice
1 lge block dark chocolate (180 -200g)
250 g butter
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour
100g dark chocolate broken into small pieces or 100 g chocolate buttons
Lightly toast pecans. I put them in the oven to toast as the oven is preheating.
Melt butter and chocolate together. I use the microwave, med heat with one minute intervals or use a saucepan or double boiler.
Beat sugar and vanilla into melted chocolate mixture.
Add eggs one at a time and beat well. The mixture should trap lots of air bubbles.
Stir in flour, pecans and choc chunks.
Spread mixture into a greased and lined deep slice/lamington tin.
Bake at 170 deg C until just cooked.
Remove from oven and allow the slice to cool in the tin.
When cold, cut into pieces and dust with icing sugar.
