This is one of the easiest sweet treats you could make - aka chocolate biscuit slice or fridge slice Just melt and mix. It's not a health food though! Went like hot cakes at the school bake sale.

150g dark chocolate

100g butter

395 g can condensed milk

250g plain biscuits

1/2 c chopped walnuts

1/2 c desiccated coconut

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 c cranberries, optional


1 c icing sugar

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

pinch salt

50g butter, melted

2-4 Tbps boiling water

sprinkles of choice

Line a 20cm square tin or brownie tin with baking paper.

In a small saucepan melt the chocolate with the butter and condensed milk over a low heat.

Meanwhile, place biscuits in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin until crumbly, leaving some larger bits. Mix in a bowl with the walnuts, coconut, cocoa and cranberries.

Let melted chocolate mixture cool slightly then pour into the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Transfer into your tin and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

To make the icing, sift the icing sugar, cocoa and salt into a bowl. With a butter knife stir in the butter and enough boiling water to achieve the right consistency for icing.

Spread evenly onto your slice and decorate with sprinkles. Leave to harden then cut into small squares. It's very rich, you don't need large pieces.
