No Bake - No Cook ... Apricot Slice Recipe
Apricot Slice - great with a Coffee or Tea
1 x cup chopped dried apricots , make the dices fairly small.
1 x cup chopped marshmallows, make the dices fairly small.
1 x cup chopped walnuts. once again make the dices fairly small.
1 x tin sweetened Condensed milk.
1 x packet of "NICE" biscuits.
Coconut as much as required.
I have not tried this recipe with fresh apricots but maybe that is an option!
This is the method I use to make the Apricot Slice:
Crumb biscuits until fine, with no lumps at all. (you may like to use a Magic Bullet for this)
Add sweetened condensed milk, apricots, marshmellows and walnuts,
stir until all well combined.
Spread coconut on to baking paper.
Divide mixture into four lots.
Place 1 lot at a time into coconut, shape into oblongs approximately 9 inches (23cm) x 3 inches (8cm) and coat all over with coconut.
Line an airtight container with baking paper and place finished logs on paper covering each layer as you go, so that they do not touch.
Place in fridge, may take four to six hours to set,
It is best to keep this log in the fridge, otherwise it will go soft and will not be as tasty.
just slice as much as you require at any given time.
I am not sure how long it keeps for, as in our home, it is gone within a week.
It is fiddly and gooey to work with, but well worth it.
If you prefer one ingredient more than another just use less of one and more of the other.
Also if you prefer a little less sweet.
For instance: "MARIE" biscuits could be used in place of "NICE" biscuits!
In the fridge!
It is nice to have this slice in your fridge in case friends drop in for coffee or a cup of tea.
I do hope you enjoy it. :) :)
In Australia, we have been advised not to allow children under the age of FIVE years to consume nuts of any description.
Maybe you could substitute the nuts for something else for your children!
