I hope January is treating you well. As I type this, I can hear wind and rain outside the windows. I cast my mind back to a better time, a sunnier time. These bright lemon and white chocolate slices have a delicate flavour sure to take you forward to Spring. Lemon is my favourite flavour in dessert. It’s light and refreshing and these slices are no exception.
They are a cross between a brownie and a tray bake and have a gooey, fudgy middle. You’ll find it hard to have just one!
Preheat the oven to 170C. Melt together butter and white chocolate in a glass bowl either over a pan of hot water or in the microwave.
Mix in the caster sugar. Then add in your lemon juice from two squeezed lemons and the teaspoon of lemon extract. Mix well.
Pour your mixture into a prepared baking tray. I’ve used a 10×8 and sprayed liberally with cake release.
These taste like fondant fancies. LOVE. Get the kettle on.
I love topping these with lemon crunch, lemon jelly squares and meringue drops by Scrumptious Sprinkles.
