Yay – it’s Friday!! Is anyone else as excited as I am!? Not only do I get to check out all of the incredibly yummy recipes on todays Fabulous Foodie Fridays party, but it’s also the weekend. Woo hoo!! This week our feature recipe is a deliciously moorish Licorice Allsort Slice… OMG is there a sweeter way to start the weekend? Let’s kick things off with my favourite recipes from last weeks party.
With the warmer weather starting to creep up on us, these Triple Chocolate Ice-creams from Bek Mudridge are a perfect and (guilt free!) snack.
Who doesn’t love Rocky Road? This Cookies and Cream version from Lime and Mortar looks amazing!
I’m always on the look out for a recipe I can make with the boys and they will enjoy. Thank you to Play with Food for this great Soft Molasses Biscuit recipe, I know my boys will have a ball creating these!
Don’t forget to pop over and check out Lucy’s favourites too! And now Lucy is sharing her Licorice Allsort Slice recipe with us – over to her.
Hi guys! This week I’m very excited to be sharing my Licorice Allsort Slice with you. I’m totally dedicating this recipe to my Mum because she loves it! In fact, I made this batch for her as a thank you for the bazillion things she does for me… even though I’m grown up, married and haven’t lived at home for years, she still is the most incredible help and support. But that’s enough of the soppy stuff, she’s just a really, really brilliant and beautiful person!
So, a few weeks ago Mum was telling me that every time she goes to the hairdresser she gets a piece of slice with her cuppa and she loves it when it’s Licorice Allsort Slice. It reminded me that I haven’t made that slice for AGES. Far too long!
Now don’t think I’m a weirdo but I don’t actually like licorice and yet I absolutely love this slice! I know that’s really strange. I think the yummy biscuit base and chocolate top make the licorice way yummier for a non-fan like me. Other people (yes Mum – I’m talking to you) would probably love way more licorice in the slice, but I think this is the perfect balance.
And as we all know, I’m very impartial to pretty food. And this, my friends, is bright, colourful and pretty food. Licorice Allsort Slice is like a little ray of sunshine! See below for conventional and Thermomix instructions. xx

Licorice Allsort Slice Thermomix Instructions:
1. Crush biscuits on Tubro until they resemble fine crumbs (about 5-10 seconds).
2. Set biscuit crumbs aside.
3. Chop licorice all sorts by hand (you can do this in the TM but it looks better if you slice them evenly with a knife).
4. Weigh the condensed milk, butter and golden syrup into TM bowl and melt on Reverse Speed 2 for 3 minutes or until smooth.
5. Add the crushed biscuits, chopped licorice allsorts and coconut.
6. Mix together on Reverse Speed 2 until well combined (about 20-30 seconds).
7. Press the mixture into the base of the prepared pan and set aside for 30 minutes to set.
8. To make the chocolate topping, melt chocolate and coconut oil on 50 degrees Speed 2 for 3-5 minutes (stop once melted).
9. Pour the chocolate over the slice and place into the fridge for an hour before cutting into slices.
