No bake desserts are my personal favorite.

What is not to love about them? The oven gets ignored, there is little prep needed, and you satisfy the sweet tooth in no time.

If you’ve made our cornflake bars, caramel slice, or cookie dough bars, then a chocolate slice MUST be next on your agenda!

Why this recipe works

If you are not much of a baker but still enjoy homemade sweets, then my chocolate slice recipe is what you should try next. Made with plain chocolate cookies, oats, dark chocolate, and peanut butter, this chocolate slice turns out sweet, luscious, and so delicious! 

  • Easy and quick. Chocolate slice is the perfect dessert to make if you have leftover chocolate cookies and it doesn’t even matter if they are homemade or not. And while this chocolate slice may take a couple of hours to fully set, making it takes a matter of minutes. 
  • Only 6 ingredients. Unlike most dessert recipes that have a long list of dry and wet ingredients, this chocolate slice recipe only calls for a couple of everyday ingredients. 
  • No bake recipe. Like in a pot de creme, the best part about this chocolate dessert is that it requires no baking. So, there is no room for error even for those who think baking is not their strong suit. 

What I love about this recipe is just how versatile it is! You can serve them at events and parties or make a batch for a cheeky dessert! 

Ingredients needed

This rich and fudgy chocolate slice is made with a few simple ingredients. Here’s everything you will need. 

  • Oats. I use rolled oats for this recipe as they create a chewy texture. 
  • Chocolate cookies. Plain chocolate cookies crushed to a fine crumb. 
  • Sugar. Use confectioner’s sugar for this recipe as it melts a lot easier than granulated sugar. 
  • Dark chocolate. Finely chopped. 
  • Peanut butter. To add sweetness and help bind ingredients. 
  • Butter. Unsalted. 

For the topping:

  • Dark chocolate. As the slice is already pleasantly sweet, using dark chocolate has a fantastic contrast. 
  • Peanut butter. When combined with the melted chocolate, it creates an almost fudge-like texture (like we used for our keto fudge). 
  • Flaky sea salt. Sprinkle over the chocolate slices to decorate them. Salt also enhances the flavor of chocolate. 

How to make a chocolate slice

This chocolate slice recipe doesn’t require any baking which means that it is a breeze to make. Here is how you make this rich chocolate dessert in just a few steps. 

Step 1- Prepare the chocolate base

Put the finely chopped dark chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Add the peanut butter and butter. Microwave in 20-second intervals until fully melted. Once melted, add in the rolled oats, chocolate cookies, and confectioner’s sugar. Mix well until fully combined.

Step 2- Make the topping

For the topping, add chopped dark chocolate and peanut butter to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 20-second intervals until fully melted and glossy.

Step 3- Set, slice, and serve 

Pour the chocolate peanut butter topping over the chocolate slice and refrigerate until firm. Once frim, allow the chocolate slice to sit at room temperature for a few minutes. Then slice, sprinkle with flaky sea salt, and serve.

Tips to make the best recipe

  • Use a blender or a food processor to crush the cookies into a fine powder. Crushing the cookies by hand will result in inconsistent crumbs and interfere with the final texture of the chocolate slice. 
  • Substitute dark chocolate with milk chocolate if you want a sweeter topping for the chocolate slice. 
  • Remove the chocolate slice from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature for around 20 minutes before you cut it. This will prevent the chocolate coating from cracking. 
  • Coat your knife with cooking spray to cut perfect slices. Wipe the knife clean after each slice and apply cooking spray again before cutting another piece. 

Storage instructions

To store: As this is a no bake dessert, the bars can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container. They will keep well for at least a week. If you’d like them to keep longer, store them in the refrigerator and they will keep well for at least four weeks. 

To freeze: Place the slice in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.

  1. I love white chocolate. I know it’s not everybody’s cup of tea (my sister loathes it) but I’ve always had a really fond feeling for it. I love sweet and salty things too! I definitely want to try your salted caramel slices with regular chocolate too – those always catch my eye when I’m on your blog! Well, all you food does, actually. 🙂

  2. You are an amazing gift giver. My aunt is one of the worst. She keeps giving me super religious things or things with cherubs on them. And and other very nonsense gifts. Honey, I think it is a bit late for me….

  3. HEEEY I got an email that this post is up 🙂 I subscribed with another email address again and it worked. Yiha!
    For Mother’s day my mum usually gets a cake or something baked, a breakfast, if I’m at home; and a little something, nothing big. Like cosmetics or something. We usually just spend the day together and that’s the best part 🙂
    An unappreciated gift…the cookbook I gave to my brother for Christmas last year. He hasn’t tried it out yet. And I requested a cooked meal by him, and/or making a recipe together. Hasn’t happened yet 🙁 *sad Ann*

  4. So, I’mm make this.
    But I won’t give it to my mom. Because I am a selfish human being and I want to eat ALL the slices for myself.
    You’re judging me, and I’m ok with that. Pinning!

  5. LOLLLL at least your mom said she didn’t want anything, even if she did. If I don’t get my mom something she usually sends me a really awesome/terrible passive aggressive text about how it would be nice if I remembered the day dedicated to her. …I should blog about that, but I don’t think she’d like that very much.

  6. Well if this recipe is Arman’s mom approved, then I clearly need to try it out. Seriously, though, this looks delicious. I would never have thought about vanilla and salt together, but I do love the salty-sweet combo when it comes to dessert. I think I need to load up on these bad boys. Also, I fail at gift giving. I used to be really good at it, but now I can’t ever come up with anything for my wife. This year she’s getting Arman’s Mom’s Healthy No Bake Salted Vanilla Slices. And she’s gonna like it! 😉

    1. Confession- I went through an oatmeal phase where no joke, I had a salt shaker by my side!

      I like that idea- If all fails, more for you!

  7. You’re inspiring me to start trying recipes with caramel…. I might have to start with this one. Probably the healthier version only because I’ll eat them all for dinner.

  8. Haha oh man, my mom IS Frankie Heck from The Middle. Hence why we have to watch it every week so I can point it out and tease her for it. Oh momma, I love ya. I do disturbing amounts of research before I gift anyone anything for the great fear of getting something shitty. Of course there are always those people who are impossible to buy for/have everything/are super rich so anything you get them equates to garbage. It never fails to make my head burst every single Christmas.

  9. I’m not a big white chocolate fan, but I love pretty much anything with caramel, and thees look delicious!!

  10. Give me anything vanilla flavored and I will eat it like it’s my job. And you sound like an awesome gift giver!!

  11. I’m not a huge white chocolate fan but I’m really intrigued by the homemade healthy version! I’ll be on a cross country trip for mothers day so I was going to send her a gift but I like the idea of making her something instead 🙂
