NEW SERIES: Back To School Recipes
I'm sure, unlike most people, I was quite lucky when it came to school dinners. I actually really enjoyed them! 
I wouldn't say we had anything out of the ordinary but 17 years on, after leaving primary school I still think about my school dinner favorites on a regular basis. Is that odd? 
So in true Back To School fashion, I'm going to be recreating some of my school dinner favourites and sharing them throughout the month of September, here on Who's That Girl?
First up, we have Chocolate Crunch!
Definitely one of my favourite school dinner desserts and one I've been craving for a few weeks so I just had to dust off my baking tin and attempt to recreate it!
425g Plain Flour
425g Self Raising Flour
375g Sugar
425g Melted Butter/Margarine
2 Eggs, beaten lightly
40g Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
For this recipe, you will need a 26cm x 38cm x 2.5cm baking tray.

Preheat your oven to 150c

In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, sugar and cocoa together. I would suggest using an electric whisk or stand mixer for this as the mixture can become quite hard to work with.

Add the melted butter/margarine and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients and add the lightly beaten eggs. 

Continue mixing until all ingredients are combined.

Press the mixture, evenly into your lightly greased baking tin.

Brush the top of your chocolate crunch with a little water and sprinkle with some additional sugar. Granulated or Caster sugar is fine.

Bake in your preheated oven for at least 30 minutes. You can bake for slightly longer if you like your chocolate crunch a little more "crunchy".

Remove from oven and mark out your 24 pieces, before leaving to cool.

Now, enjoy a slice of chocolate crunch with a well-deserved cup of tea!

  1. Love this idea! I used to love school dinners in primary school as well. They had this proper thick, cheesy pizza and these chocolate ring donuts which I would move heaven and earth to have again!

    1. Ooh! I don't remember ever having pizza or donuts in our school dinner choices. Such a shame because I'm sure I would've loved them! x

    Read my testimony! Getting ex back after a breakup.
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: call him on: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
