Sometimes you just have a whole heap of ingredients that are useless by themselves, yet when put together magically come to life to create something amazing.
I think the best thing’s about lolly cake slice is how pretty it is, and the fact that it takes – at the most – 10 minutes to make, not to mention it’s delicious melt in your mouth sweetness. We’re talking all around win situation here.
I’m hesitant to even call this a recipe. There is literally nothing to it, with perfect results every time (I take no responsibility for this not working for you). Basically throw everything in the pot and you’re cooking – not literally though.
Sitting down to this slice today made me feel like a real kid again – okay so I’m not really that far off it, but still. I think it’s the colours that make give it that pretty, tea party feel. It’s something I’ve never made before, I dont know why because it was fantastic. I’ve enjoyed it since I was little, and now that I have this under my belt – I will be enjoying it for many years to come.
Lolly Cake Slice
125g butter, melted
1/2 can condensed milk (about 200g)
1 tsp vanilla
1 packet milk arrowroot (malt biscuits work well for a traditionally dark slice), crushed (about 250g I think )
150-200g fruit puff lollies (I used a whole bag, not sure how many were in there)
coconut, for topping
Melt the butter, and mix in the condensed milk. If they’re not mixing easily, zap them in the microwave for 15 seconds or so (you shouldn’t need to at this time of year). Stir in the vanilla, crushed biscuits and lollies and mix it all up together.
Line a slice tin with baking paper and press the mixture firmly into the tin. Top with shredded coconut, then leave to chill untill set (overnight is perfect). When set, cut into small bars.
