Guest Post: Chocolate and Granola Tray Bake by Chantelle

Today’s post is written by the lovely +Chantelle Hazelden who blogs over at Mama Mummy Mum.  Chantelle has posted here before with her cheerio cakes.  Well she has done it again, as well as being a Mummy to 4 beautiful girls she has found the time to bake up a treat again and is sharing it with you.

Thank you Chantelle – we will definitely be trying these when we get back from our holiday, they look amazing.

Hello
it’s me again, back with another recipe to tempt you all.

I do
believe that you can’t go wrong with a good bit of chocolate, it just
manages to cheer you right up (just don’t think about the calories).
This chocolate and granola tray bake is super easy to make and you
don’t have to wait long to eat it either, it’s a win win surely?

Ingredients

For
the tray bake:

* 125g Self Raising Flour

*
100g Caster Sugar

*
1 heaped Tbsp Cocoa Powder

*
125g Butter

*
75g Granola
For
the topping:

* 100g Dark Chocolate

* 100g White Chocolate

Preparation

 
*
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

*
Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.

 

*
In a jug melt the butter and then pour into the dry ingredients, stir
until they are all mixed together. It forms a thick gooey mixture.

*
Place in a baking tray that is around 20 x 20cm and push down so that
the mixture is nice and compact. You can of course use a bigger tray
just pushing the mixture to one side of it.

* Bake for 10
minutes.

*
As the cake cools slightly, melt the dark and white chocolate
together in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or so as you
don’t want it to burn.

* Once completely melted, pour over the
cake and spread it all over.

* Pop in the fridge to set for a
couple of hours or if you want to speed up the process you can always
place it in the freezer for a bit.

* As soon as it is set,
take it out of the fridge, slice it up, big or small pieces, whatever
takes your fancy.

All
that’s left to do is sit down, put your feet up and have a cuppa and
a slice of chocolate and granola tray bake, job done
