Since I've been a naughty non-blogging blogger I thought I'd better share a recipe with you.
I first tasted this slice at a friend's post-wedding BBQ a couple of years ago. I shamefully kept reaching for the slice plate, and my friend's aunty took pity on me and sent me the recipe. Being the disorganised person I am, I inevitably lost the recipe and have been itching to have a crack at the slice myself.
Recently I went to a lunch at my friend Yvette's house, and I wanted to bring something quick and tasty for dessert. I managed to throw this together a couple of hours before leaving for Yvette's - a true testament to how simple this slice is!
Here's how you make it:
1 packet Arnott's Marie biscuits
1 tin condensed milk
1 family block Cadbury peppermint chocolate (you can easily substitute any of the 'filled' blocks - caramel or turkish delight for example)
20g milk or dark chocolate, optional
Blitz the biscuits in the food processor. Since I was making this at my inlaws' house and they were all still in bed, I opted for the trusty rolling pin on the chopping board trick).
Break the peppermint chocolate up and give it a quick burst in the microwave for about 20 secs (you don't want it completely melted). Stir the chocolate and condensed milk in to the biscuit crumbs.
Line a small slice tray or loaf pan with baking paper (leave some paper hanging over the sides for easy removal) and spoon the mixture in. Press in to place with your fingers or the back of a spoon.
Melt the extra chocolate in the microwave (should only take a minute) and drizzle over the slice. I used a quick piping bag I made out of baking paper, but you could also use a zip-lock bag with the corner cut.
Chill the slice in the fridge for an hour or two, remove from tray and cut into squares. Enjoy!
