Classic Cherry Ripe Slice Recipe

My Nan's Classic Cherry Ripe Slice Recipe is just like the Cherry Ripe Slice you grew up with! It's an easy no bake slice recipe and also includes Thermomix instructions too. 
Prep Time15 mins
Chilling Time3 hrs
Course: Brownies & Slices
Keyword: Christmas, Slices, Thermomix
Servings: 16 pieces


  • 110 grams butter melted
  • 395 gram tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 250 grams Marie Biscuits or similar plain biscuit
  • 200 grams glace cherries finely chopped
  • 3 cups dessicated coconut
  • 4 drops pink food colouring
  • 200 grams dark chocolate melted
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil optional


  • Line the base and sides of a 20cm square cake tin with baking paper - making sure you leave paper hanging up the sides of the tin to help you remove the slice once it has set.
  • Crush the biscuits until they form small pieces and place in a large bowl.
  • Add the melted butter, cherries, coconut and pink colouring and mix until well combined.
  • Transfer to your prepared tin and use the back of a spoon to flatten the top of the mixture - don't worry, it will be sticky!
  • Place the dark chocolate and coconut oil (if using) into a microwave safe bowl and cook on 30 second spurts until it's just melted. 
  • Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the slice and place into the fridge for 3 hours or until set. Once set, cut into pieces and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.


You can also use a 28 x 18cm slice tin for this recipe.
It's optional to add the coconut oil to the melted chocolate, I find adding it helps when cutting the slice.
