Over the weekend I was making a batch of Peppermint Slice when I realised I had ½ a tin of condensed milk leftover. Not wanting to be wasteful, I decided to make another slice. Checking the pantry, we were out of plain biscuits, but I found a pack of chocolate ripple biscuits sitting at the back of the shelf that I can’t actually remember buying – does anyone else do that? Luckily, we ALWAYS have blocks of chocolate stashed away, so I decided to experiment with a different combination to create this No Bake Hazelnut Slice and I think I’ve found a winner.
The combination of chocolate ripple biscuits, hazelnut chocolate and a milk chocolate icing make this a very delicious and decadent slice. I was a little worried it may be too rich, but the hazelnuts scattered throughout the slice were enough to cut through all of the sweet chocolate.
You will need:
200g of chocolate ripple biscuits (or similar)
½ tin of condensed milk
100g of butter
1 x 200g block of Cadbury hazelnut chocolate (or similar)
1 x 200g block of Cadbury milk chocolate (or similar).
Let’s put it together
Line a slice tin with enough baking paper so there is some hanging over the sides – this helps you to remove the slice from the tin once it has set.
In a large bowl, crush the biscuits with the end of a rolling pin or wooden spoon until they resemble fine crumbs.
Place the chocolate and butter together in a small bowl. Melt in the microwave, cooking for 30 second spurts on a medium/high heat and mix in between.
Add the melted ingredients and the condensed milk to the crushed biscuits and use a large metal spoon to combine.
Pour the mixture into the slice tin and use the back of a metal spoon to press it down into the tray to create a flat surface – don’t worry, it will be very sticky! I find it helpful to use two spoons to spread and press it into the tin.
Melt the milk chocolate chocolate in the microwave and pour across the top of the slice.
Pop the slice into the fridge to firm for approximately one hour, remove and cut into small slices.
Do you find food in your pantry that you can’t remember buying?
