Let me start off by saying that this is in no way a fancy-pants slice. It’s a ‘whip up in 10 minutes flat while holding a toddler on your hip’ kind of recipe (true story!!).

  • tried making a fancy-schmancy dessert and it ended in tears… this is your rescue recipe;
  • you’ve got a Christmas party in the afternoon and your toddler has decided to take up residence on your hip.

    Easy method with simple ingredients! Had so much fun making this slice! I put my own spin on it and crushed some candy canes into a powder using the blender, sprinkled it on top of the melted chocolate with larger pieces of candy cane and the MNM’s! It turned out amazing!
