Hi everyone!

One of my favourite things about Birthdays is the cool presents you get, (yes I admit to being such a child – smile), in any case this year I received the most awesome cookbook from a dear Kiwi friend  – written by Kiwi teenager Amelia Ferrier.

Being a hot summers day this was the first recipe I simply had to try:

No-Bake White Chocolate, Peanut Butter Slice

Recipe:

Prepare 20cm x 20cm slice tin (either grease tin or line with baking paper)

Base:

  • 375g plain biscuits – crushed
  • 1 & 1/2 cups dried dates – chopped
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 100g butter (original is 150 but I think 100 is enough)
  • 395 g sweetened condensed milk
  • pinch of salt

Method:

  • Melt butter, condensed milk and salt in small saucepan over medium heat
  • Pour over crushed biscuits, dried dates  and coconut and mix to combine,
  • Spoon into prepared tin and press down firmly to flatten – refrigerate.

Icing:

  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 250g white chocolate
  • Crushed nuts
  • Handful crushed pretzels

Method:

  • Melt white chocolate in either microwave or in a bowl over a pot of simmering water
  • Add peanut butter
  • Spread icing evenly over the base
  • Decorate with crushed nuts and a handful of crushed pretzels

Put in fridge until cold – personally I found it tasted much better the next day 😉

Serve as a slice with coffee

or add a little fruit as after dinner desert

…and just to prove to you it tastes good – some 3rd party evidence – smile!
