  1. Made these yesterday and omg yum! So buttery and delicious, doubled the cooking time for my 3.5L slow cooker.

  2. Turned this recipe into a slice and then added melted chocolate on top and popped into the fridge to set. The only thing I changed was the time it cooked for. 2hrs on high instead of 1 and used the tea towel method still. I left mine to cool down in the slow cooker before removing as I didn’t want it to break.
