Monday Munchies #11

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.

Cherry Ripe Slice
Cherry Ripe Slice

  • 80g Copha
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 250g desiccated coconut
  • 200g glace cherries, quartered
  • 250 or 400g chocolate*: dark or milk
Line a slice tin with baking paper. Melt the Copha gently in a pan over a low heat. Meanwhile combine all the other ingredients and then mix the Copha in extremely well. Press into the slice tin, even out the top and then cover with 250g of melted chocolate.

*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.

It seems Monday Munchies was published right on time for you (I thought it was early because I forgot about the time difference!)

I'd not heard of Copha before and I'm certain I'd have to go to a "specialist" shop, like in The Olden Days when you could only get olive oil from the chemists!

Laurie (Moo!)

Still Sunday, here, but I love the mix of chocolate and cherries. No idea about Copha but it looks wonderful and I hope you had a happy tea!

Looks like your jiggery-pokery worked Mrs C! Well done - I remember a version of this lovely slice too.

Keep out of the heat and enjoy those lovely doggies. (Must talk to you about the Naughty Miss Eevee too).

Yummy - all my favorite ingredients. Unfortunately, I am now on a dairy free diet so will have to wait for a while before I can taste one of these!

Oh, you make it difficult for a girl to diet, with cherry & coconut! I want a Cherry Ripe right now!!!
