I don’t make as many biscuits and slices now as I did when my children were growing up. I have more time than I did back then, but the idea of a quick slice still has a lot of appeal and the combination of coconut and lemon is always a winner.
Homemade dinner mints, very 70s. Don’t think they’d be a patch on the bought chocolate ones, but maybe if you coat these with a layer of chocolate instead of the coconut they’d been worth doing.
This is another easy slice to make and is great because it’s no bake and can be kept in the fridge until you need it.
There’s lots of Brownie recipes available and I’ve already posted some myself, but I like this one as it needs no beating and it’s made in just one bowl. That means that by the time the kids lick the bowl and spoon there’s hardly anything to clean up.
These could be a fairly healthy biscuit for the kids during the school holidays or as they’re pretty easy to make they might even be a good holiday activity. They won’t keep long with the mushy bananas inside, but they probably won’t last long with the kids around anyway.
There’s lots and lots of truffle recipes around and this another version by Nestle. It uses sweetened condensed milk to bind the fruit, nuts and biscuits together and has a rich chocolate coating….they look yummy.
This is really just a baked caramel slice with a chocolate topping, but it’s a great name for it, isn’t it?
