FRUIT AND NUT TRUFFLES

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.

COCONUT CHERRY SLICE

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.

COCONUT ROUGH SLICE

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.

ROCKY ROAD

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.
