Like the Chocolate Crunch Slice, the Fudge Slice brings back a lot of childhood memories. We were allowed a piece after school as a treat before being sent outside to play. I think that we were only allowed to stay indoors if the rain was torrential, there was a gale force wind and the temperature was below -5 C. Anything above that was classed as fine and we were sent out in our wellies.

Pour mixture in to a greased tin (approximately 18 x 28 cm or 7 x 11 inches) and flatten.

Cut in to small slices once it has cooled.
