Chocolate Oat Slice

One of the families' favourites - I have to make it only when we have people over, as I would eat it all! (It's also safe to say that this is not lactose, sugar or gluten free!)

250g butter, melted
2 cups dark brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 1/2 cups SR flour
3 cups rolled oats

300g dark chocolate, melted (for this recipe I used 2 chocolate rabbits left over from Easter!)
395g can of sweetened condensed milk
30g butter
1 cup flaked almonds
1 tsp vanilla essence


Preheat oven to moderate (180 degrees), and grease and line two rectangular slice pans (19cm x 29cm)
Combine butter, sugar, eggs and essence in a large bowl, then add the sifted flour and oats, mix. Roughly divide into 3 portions - 2 are pressed into the prepared pans, and then remaining mixture and the pans are placed in the fridge while preparing the filling.

For the filling, combine all ingredients in a small pan and mix over very low heat until combined. Spread filling over both pans, and top with the third portion of mixtured in a crumble fashion. Bake for 30 minuted or until lightly browned.

Allow to cool, and then turn out - refrigerate for a while before cutting it into portions.

ooooh boy...I can only eat it with my eyes, but that's some satisfyingly good looking slice!

(omg, the word verification for my post is "slicing"!)
