Here's another afternoon tea slice, only this one can be whipped up in an instant and is probably ready to eat in an hour!!! I like this slice, because if I leave off the chocolate, I can eat it.
- 80g Copha
- 1 tin condensed milk
- 250g desiccated coconut
- 200g glace cherries, quartered
- 250 or 400g chocolate*: dark or milk
*You can melt 200g of the chocolate, spread it over the base of the lined tin and pop it into the fridge for 15 minutes. Then press the slice mixture on top, and top with the remaining 200g of chocolate. This gives you a more authentic Cherry Ripe 'look'.
Refrigerate for at least an hour, then cut into fingers or little squares!! It is delicious. Some people add red food colouring, but I think the pale pink imbued by the cherries is just right.
I used 400g the chocolate on top for MrsDrWho.
