Pecan, cherry 'n' chocolate chip slice

Dangerously moreish!


  • 250 gram packet plain wheat digestive biscuits
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 100 grams butter, melted
  • 1½ cups brown sugar
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup chopped glace cherries
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Grease and line a 20cm x 24-26cm slice tin.
  2. Place the biscuits in a sealable plastic bag and roll with a rolling pin to form fine crumbs. Alternatively, place in a food processor and pulse.
  3. Mix 1¾ cups of biscuit crumbs with the oats and butter to form moist crumbs. Press firmly into the base of the prepared tin.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned.
  5. While the base is cooking, mix the remaining crumbs (about ½ cup) with the brown sugar, pecans, glace cherries, chocolate chips, baking powder, vanilla essence and eggs.
  6. Spread over hot baked crust and return to the oven for a further 20 minutes. Cool completely before dusting with icing sugar or topping with a favourite chocolate icing. Serve in small squares.
