Decadent and rich! Not quite crushed store bought cookies (I use shortbread) with melted butter and glace cherries topped with melted dark and milk chocolate. A prefect mouthful of happiness, best served with tea or coffee and a good friend to enjoy it with.

Ideal for afternoon tea, lunch boxes or as a gift. This takes mere minutes to make and is delicious! Note - chilling time is cooking time.

Adapted from Jo Wheatley's recipe: white chocolate tiffin.

How to Make Betty's Cherry and Chocolate Slice

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease and line large brownie tray (30x23 cm/9x12 inches). Set aside.
  2. Pour the cookies into a strong large zip lock bag. Use a rolling pin or meat mallet to break the cookies into ALMOST crumbs. Pour into a large bowl and add the coconut and cherries. Stir to combine
  3. In a saucepan; melt the butter, sugar, syrup and malt powder together. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir well to mix. Pour into the prepared tray and use the back of a metal spoon to spread out, push down and make even.
  4. Melt the chocolate (I use the microwave - place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and gently heat, stirring often). Pour the melted chocolate over the base. Allow to cool completely - a good few hours or pop in the fridge for an hour. Once cold, chop into slices and enjoy or share!
  5. NOTE- if it's a hot day or winter, store this slice in the fridge.
