This is something an old friend at school family used to always make for parties and events. I don’t remember the recipe but I remember the ingredients, how it tasted (so good!) and the texture so thought I would try and recreate it. I loved it as a child. This isn’t spot on with their version but still good enough for me. My partner took some to work and a lady said it was the best slice she has had in a long time! Wow.

This is a great recipe to use up that 200g of sweetened condensed milk (leftovers? whats that?) and is very quick to whip up.

  2. If you don't like using a microwave you can melt the chocolate using a bain marie. If in doubt melting chocolate in the microwave, add a little fat like coconut oil to it to help the melting process.
  3. You can make the whole base mixture in the food processor however it may break down too much. Be sure to use low speed.
