QUICK CHOC-CARAMEL SLICE

I like the combination of ingredients in this slice recipe.  Caramels, chocolate, peanuts and rice bubbles sound like they’d go well together.  If you were worried about adding in the peanuts it would be quite easy to double up the chocolate, can’t see why that would be any sort of problem.

PEANUT HONEY SLICE

I know that cooking with nuts is not as popular these days because of all the allergy problems, but I thought this old recipe was still worth adding to the collection.

WHITE CHRISTMAS

This time of year when you have to take a ‘plate’ to all sorts of Christmas functions White Christmas is another quick and easy copha recipe that can work quite well.  It was something that Mum made every Christmas, put on a plate with a bit of tinsel or some sprigs of holly it looks really festive.  It might be a bit old fashioned now, but it still tastes great.  These are a couple of versions I found in Mum’s collection.

RICE BUBBLE SLICE

I’m not sure who E. Lacy was, but I’m glad Mum got this recipe from her. This slice is easy to make and a hit with the kids.
