NZ is at day 1 of our nationwide lockdown in an effort to overcome COVID-19. I don't know about you but I plan to spend alot of time trying out some new recipes over the next 4 weeks! Here is one of my fave slice recipes. I should also add- this freezes really well! So while we are all hunkering down in our homes it could pay to keep some of it out of sight- out of mind! if not- then you have been warned! It is very moreish...
