I’m addicted to Jaffa. It wasn’t that long ago when I posted my favourite recipe for my Jaffa Cupcakes so I’m sure that it comes as no surprise when I say that I believe chocolate and orange is a match made in heaven. The more ways I try to use this combo, the more I fall in love. This recipe is an adaption on my mums old chocolate slice recipe. She used to make it for the schools tuck shop to sell as home baking. This, and her super famous Passion fruit slice won the hearts of many kids growing up. My friends used to ask me if it was my mums day for tuck shop, and when it wasn’t they were disappointed.
It’s not the healthiest recipe, but I do believe everything in moderation. Just a little square here and there is enough to curb the sweet tooth for me. The rest, I cut and freeze until we feel like something sweet. It’s great to have in the freezer for when you Jaffa loving friends come over. It’s sure to impress!
