Espresso and Chocolate Chip Slices [sheet pan recipe] are delicious, especially with a cup of freshly brewed coffee – at teatime or for dessert – Quick, easy recipe.
Espresso and Chocolate Chip Slices are such a delicious treat ! I found this book, Food Lovers (Desserts), at our Crazy Store, it was the last one so I grabbed it immediately.
This is now one of my most used cook books and I am aiming to make each and every recipe – soon !
Some books, not just recipe books, any books, will grab my attention and I will know instantly that it will be good.
Don’t get me wrong, I bought duds before, which I either donate to the library or it is gathering dust somewhere.
I also now know to make a double batch next time! One slice per person is most definitely not enough. This cake is truly addicting, so be warned !
This is by no means a small recipe – it filled a baking sheet and I ended up with 12 slices – large slices.
