Yield 80-90 pieces
450g White Sugar
4tbsp Cocoa powder
1tbsp Vanilla extract
230g Porridge oats
Line a 30x25cm shallow baking tray with baking paper.

Fold in the vanilla extract, nutella and porridge oats. Mix until all the porridge oats are coated in the chocolate mixture.
Pour into the prepared tray, level off.
Gently tap the dish on your work surface to remove any trapped air bubbles.
Before the mixture sets, shake over sprinkles of your choice.
Chill for 2-3 hours or until firm, use the baking paper to help lift the chocolatey goodness out of the baking tray. Place on a chopping board, with a sharp knife cut into roughly 2cm square pieces. Serve and devour!!
