Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Gluten free option - use gluten-free Weet-bix, hwever I also recommend adding an extra egg to keep it from crumbling.
Coconut oil - this helps to stop the chocolate from cracking when you cut the slice into pieces. You could also substitute coconut oil for a mild vegetable oil or copha. 
Slicing - take the slice out of the fridge and leave for approximately 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
Storing - store the slice in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Alternatively, freeze for up to 1 month.
