Chocolate Jazzie Slices

*Chocolate Jazzie Slices*
Makes 16 slices

Kids love these quick and easy chocolate squares with chocolate jazzies melted into the tops.

185g butter, softened (3/4 cup plus 1 TBS)
220g chocolate hazelnut spread (1 1/4 cup)
75g soft light brown sugar (1/3 cup acked)
250g plain flour (1 3/4 cup)
200g chocolate jazzies (generous cup)

Preheat the oven to 160*C/325*F/ gas mark 3.  Line an 8 by  12 inch baking tin with baking parchment, leaving some overhang.

Beat the butter, chocolate spread and brown sugar together until well combined.  Stir in the flour in two lots, until thoroughly combined.  Press this mixture evenly into the prepared pan. (I find it easiest to use my hands for this.) Smooth the top with a spatula.  Bake for 25 minutes.

Working quickly remove the baked squares from the oven and press the chocolate jazzies firmly on top of the baked squares in rows, leaving about 3/4 of an inch in between each.  Leave to cool completely before cutting into rectangles
