Chunky Hedgehog Slice

It’s nutty, it’s chunky and it has chocolate – what’s not to love about my new clean hedgehog slice recipe?! This rich dessert has so many elements to it, from the tablespoons of peanut butter through the slice to the drizzle of melted dark chocolate on top, if you love a decadent dessert, you need to try this.

Made with four types of nuts and swirls of chocolate, this wholesome version of hedgehog slice will give you just what you need to kick that 3pm sugar craving. Enjoy!

    I’m excited to try this recipe with my daughters. Do you stir the ingredients over heat in a saucepan? Please could you explain when/how to melt and combine ingredients. Thanks!

      Hi Jay,

      You stir the wet ingredients over heat in a saucepan and then add to the dry ingredients once combined. Hope that helps!

      Happy baking!
