This luscious melt-and-stir chocolate slice is a decadent treat to finish a meal. As a variation, use hazelnuts and dried apricots instead of cranberries and pistachios.

Line a small 16 x 5cm loaf tin with baking paper.
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in a microwave (microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds). Take it off the heat when nearly melted. If overheated it can ‘clump up’ and go hard. The residual heat will be enough to fully melt it.
Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir until evenly combined, then stir in the vanilla, icing sugar, cranberries and pistachio nuts. At this point the mixture will solidify.
Press the mixture firmly into the prepared loaf tin. Chill until set, then slice and store in a cool place. This rich chocolate slice keeps for several weeks in an airtight container.
