Hedgehog Slice

I had a craving for Hedgehog my favourite chocolate slice the other day so did a quick Google search and found this wonderful Hedgehog slice recipe at Stay at Home Mum.

I have removed the egg, I am not too keen on eating raw egg. There is also no chocolate in this it is cocoa powder that gives you the delicious chocolate hit.

I also chose to use Scotch biscuits for a richer flavour which is a bit naughty but you can use any plain biscuit you like.

This recipe will only make a few slices, I just made enough to satisfy my chocolate craving. Double or triple the recipe if you want more!

Remove from heat and add the dry ingredients to the margarine mixing well to combine.
