I have made these slices twice now – in a week! They were a hit with family and friends! This could be my go to recipe. Someone suggested to me that you could make bliss balls with the chocolate layer. What a good idea. I must try that.

Note: if you don’t like peanuts you can substitute the peanuts in the chocolate layer with any nuts of your choice. And then you can substitute the peanut butter with almond butter, cashew butter or some other nut-free butter.
