Mum and Dad both loved ice cream, so Mum made a lots of varieties. She added cherry ripe bars and nuts, chocolate mint bars and a lot flavours to plain ice cream, but I don’t think she ever made this super chocolate one. Chocolate ice cream, mars bars, milk choc bits, white choc bits and dark chocolate – a chocolate lover’s dream I think.
It’s that time of year again when schools, kindergartens and child care centers are having their end of year activities which from my experience always means that parents have to take along a plate of food. Strangely, good wholesome things don’t seem to be that popular, but something like this chocolate and marshmallow slice should be a hit with the kids.
Slices that used condensed milk and copha were very popular in the ’70s and ’80s. In our family there were quite a few recipes that were shared between Mum, my aunties and even by then my sisters-in-law. Instead of icing the slice this one uses a bar of milk chocolate as the topping. The copha is added in to prevent the chocolate cracking when you cut it.
