This is an original recipe from the fabulous Lauren at CreateBakeMake, the phenomenally popular blog dedicated to all things baking. A fun reworking of the classic hedgehog slice, it would work perfectly at a cake stall as it is easy to make (kids can do it) and visually appealing.
200g of Clinkers
200g of Marie biscuits
125g of butter
1 cup of condensed milk (just under a full tin)
200g of milk chocolate
Line a 18cm x 28cm baking tin with baking paper – make sure you leave some paper hanging over the edge to help you lift the slice out of the tin later.
Crush the biscuits and Clinkers into large pieces using a food processor. Place the crushed biscuits and clinkers into a large bowl and set aside.
Place the butter and condensed milk into a small saucepan and cook it over a low heat until the butter has melted and both ingredients have combined.
Pour the combined condensed milk and butter into the bowl with the crushed biscuits and Clinkers. Use a large metal spoon to mix together.
Pour the mixture into your lined baking tin and use the back of a metal spoon to spread the mixture evenly across the tray and push down to create a flat surface.
Break the milk chocolate into small pieces and place it into a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 30 sec at a time (stirring in between) until the chocolate has almost melted. Remove from the microwave and stir until completely melted.
Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the slice and place in the fridge to set (preferably 4+ hours).
Remove the set slice from the fridge and cut into small pieces.
Lauren founded her website Create Bake Make as a way to justify the ridiculous amount of baking she loves to do. She has a super sweet tooth and enjoying a slice of cake (or two) is one of her guilty indulgences. As a Mum of two little boys, when she isn’t creating fun activities for the kids or breaking up arguments over toy trucks and cars, you will find her in the kitchen baking up a storm – or hiding in the pantry with the latest cooking magazine and a hot cup of coffee!
