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.
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.
