This one comes from a 1974 New Idea section named Tasty Meals on a Budget. It’s a rice bubble, banana, coffee and marshmallow delight. I can’t decided just how the filling would taste, although I do think it’s one for those who have a sweet tooth.
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.

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.
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.
