Peanut Butter & Chocolate slice

I like to bake and occasionally I will ‘share the love’ and take something to work. Hopefully the item travels easily on public transport, looks appealing, feeds a crowd and is cost effective  ……that is not toooooo tall an order or expectation for a baking item surely?

I have always loved the peanut butter/chocolate combination, which I will place blame squarely on Peet for introducing me to Reece Peanut Butter Cups, this slice is the perfect foil for that craving and with a few salt flakes scattered on the slice when it comes hot from the oven it is even better still….
