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.
This is another of Woman’s Day’s No-Bake cakes. I think they’re a great idea for a do-ahead dessert either for the family or when you have friends visiting.
I’m not sure I’d call this a cake recipe, I think it’s more of a no-bake dessert, but I suppose you could serve it up as a cake. It says it should be made a day ahead, which makes it a great dessert for summer lunchtime bbqs.
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 another one of those 70s Copha slices. I think they were popular because they didn’t need baking, made a large quantity and were quick and easy to make. All pretty good reasons when you think about it.
This recipe is another one from the Pampas Pastry Finger Food Recipe sheets. I’ve just checked to see if Pampas still make sweet tart cases and apparently they do – I just haven’t seen them around lately. If you can’t buy them you could make your own using pastry sheets.
Marshmallows, coconut and chocolate with a few nuts added – a great sweet treat for Christmas entertaining. Although I think I’d be tempted to change the walnuts for some glace cherries just to make them even sweeter.
This slice looks quite luscious, but then you can’t go far wrong with chocolate, sultanas, cherries, coconut and almonds – can you?
I don’t remember Mum making lots and lots of biscuits, but she did make quite a few slices in her time. Unbaked ones like this one were always a favourite, especially in summer when using the oven heated up the kitchen too much. These days with air conditioners that isn’t so much of a problem, but unbaked slices are still a quite a good way to make a sweet treat.
Copha seems to have gone out of favour in recent years, but around the 1970s it was used a lot for no-bake slices and especially for sweets. This recipe was published by The Australian Women’s Weekly in 1994, it’s a little more modern with White Melts and Mallow Bakes, but it’s still quick and easy to make. Great for adults and children alike.
