Elephant Slice

Well the cookie swap evening was awesome fun and I am sure I have gained about 5 kilos since Saturday night. Such a great mix of people from different walks of life, but the one commonality was our love of cooking and baking. So there were 9 of us and we all took different items. I took along Chocolate Chunkers and Granola Grabbers, both of which were a hit and I think Dorie got a few more book sales that night!!

One of favourites from the night was Elephant Slice, duly named because if you consume too much of this slice you will end up the size of an elephant!! It was very rich and sweet, but very very yummy. Mind you, it was a tough call between Nigella's Triple Chocolate Brownies and this.

Elephant Slice

1 packet malt biscuits, crushed
125g unsalted butter, melted
250g dessicated coconut
1 tin sweetened condensed milk

Mix melted butter into biscuits crumbs and press into lightly greased slice pan. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 3 minutes.

Meanwhile combine the coconut and condensed milk together. Spread this over the top of the biscuit base and return to the oven for a further 12 minutes or until the topping is starting to colour. Remove fron the oven and ice while warm.

Mix 8 tbsp of brown sugar, 8 tbsp of icing sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla extract and 2 tbsps of milk to a smooth paste. Spread over coconut.

Refrigerate and cut when cold. Store in the fridge. Will last for a week if you are lucky!!!!

Sounds a bit like a Tuis ad... "Will last a week in your fridge... yeah right!" What a fun idea, got Dorie on reserve at the library.

Actually after a night in the fridge and a piece for breakfast, I have decided it is even nicer today!!

Dorie is definitely worth buying from Amazon. Plus her quantities make tons...None of this "makes 20 biscuits" which lasts all of about 2 seconds with 5 hungry kids.
