Slap it together slice

Need a simple dessert?

Strapped for time?

Nothing like a slap it together slice to sort out life’s problems.

It’s essentially a simplified Millionaire’s shortbread.

This is what happens when you combine the shortbread mastery of Digital Salad and our new-found favourite spread-

Put simply, make some shortbread, spread, leave to chill, add chocolate, cut, serve, and bask in the glory of how simple this is.

But it could be any spread.

Chocolate spread, peanut butter, nut spreads, even ice-cream!

So to make the shortbread-

250g plain flour
75g caster sugar
175g butter

First things first- grease a square tin of your choice, or use a silicon square tin if you have it.

Preheat your oven to 180C

Mix the flour and caster sugar into a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Then, get kneading until it forms a dough.

It might be rollable, but we pressed it into the tin using our hands. It didn’t look like it would fill it, but prod it into all the edges and then prick it all over with a fork.
Bake in the oven for 20min if using a metal tin or 25min if using silicon. It should be getting lightly browned. Leave to cool in the tin.

Once cool, spread your spread of choice in a thin layer all over.

Fridge it for a bit whilst you melt 200g of chocolate over a bowl of boiling water.

It could be two different types of chocolate or just one, it’s up to you.

Once it’s melted remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly, before spreading it over the top.

Fridge for two hours and then turn out and cut into chunks.


Eat some more.

Feel like a millionaire.
