Chocolate Freckle Slice

I made this slice today. The recipe is from AWW Easy Baking . Just searching for the book online now, I was surprised to find the RRP is $24.95, I paid about $8 for it at Sam's Warehouse a couple of month's ago - SCORE!!!

This recipe makes 35 sqaures - about 4x4cm each. It's only about 1cm deep, but it's VERY rich, kind of like a fudgy cookie. So one square, OK maybe two, are enough...

Chocolate Freckle Slice
185g butter, softened
220g jar chocolate hazelnut spread
1/3 cup (75g) firmly packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups (250g) plain flour
200g packet freckles

Preheat oven to 160 deg C (140 C fan forced oven). Grease and line a 19x30cm lamington pan.
Beat butter, spread and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until combined. Stir in sifted flour in two batches.
Press dough into pan, smooth surface with a spatula. Bake for 25 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and immediately press freckles firmly into slice in rows about 1.5cm apart. Cool slic in pan, cut when cold.
Makes 35 sqaures.
