Don’t read any further if you don’t want to gain weight and start on the road to tooth decay. lol
A month ago I went to a 60th party and there were some fun slices there. I put the thought of them at the back of the brain for future reference. In the meantime we had promised to watch an 11-year-old boy play football when his team vs my dh’s team. Well that happened to be last Sunday and his mum invited us to morning tea at their home after the game. They have 4 young children in their family and I was trying to come up with something I could make to take along. 💡 Perfect for children – well perhaps not healthy but a fun treat. Easily found lots of recipes on the web.
Licorice Allsorts Slice and Lolly Banana Slice –
Banana Slice (from Best Recipes.com.au)
- 1 x 250g packet of sweet biscuits (I used Marie biscuits) – crushed
- 1/2 x 395g tin condensed milk
- 115g margarine or butter, melted
- 1 packet of lolly bananas, musk sticks, maltesers (or anything else that takes your fancy) chopped roughly
- coconut (optional)
- Brush or spray pan and line with non stick baking paper.
- Mix all ingredients together then press into a 20 cm x 25 cm slice tin
- Sprinkle with coconut if desired (I covered with white chocolate – see measurements in the next recipe)
- Refrigerate, then cut into SMALL squares.
Note. This can also be rolled into a log shape and rolled in coconut, then sliced after being refrigerated.
Licorice Allsort Slice (from Taste.com.au)
- Melted butter, to grease (or spray oil)
- 125g butter, chopped
- 160ml (2/3 cup) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespn golden syrup
- 1 x 250g pkt plain sweet biscuits (I used Marie again) crushed
- 45g (1/2 cup) desiccated coconut
- 1 x 375g pkt licorice allsorts, coarsely chopped
- 200g dark cooking chocolate, chopped
- 30g copha
Brush a 19 x 29cm lamington pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base and sides with non stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang slightly.
Combine the butter, condensed milk and golden syrup in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring to 5 minutes or until butter melts and mixture is smooth. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl. Add the biscuits, coconut and licorice allsorts and stir until just combined. Press the mixture into the base of the prepared pan and set aside for 30 mins to set.
Place the chocolate and copha in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir over low heat until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the slice in the pan. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to set. Cut into SMALL squares to serve.
Two last thoughts. I would suggest you chop the lollies fairly small – I left them too big. If you have time to leave it overnight it is much better.
Well there are the recipes, it’s up to you if you are game enough to try them. REMEMBER – use only as a treat 😆
Bye for now,
