The ‘Berry Forest’ no-bake slice

Oct 13, 2023

This six ingredient decadent slice is the perfect treat to share with friends.

This is my friend Deb’s recipe. Deb often cooks for gangs of shearers who are busy shearing merino sheep for our gorgeous merino wool industry here in New Zealand. One of the wool handlers who has sampled Deb’s cooking happens to be working in our shed this year and has requested that I make Deb’s slice. Luckily Deb has also allowed me to share this quick easy recipe with you too.

Make sure to use Whittaker’sBerry Forest‘ chocolate for this slice – not just for quality and flavour but also because Whittaker’s is able to boost that it is 100% traceable from bean to bar, uses no palm oil and is GM free.

What ingredients will I need?

Malt biscuits (250 gram packet)
Vanilla biscuits (250 gram packet)
Butter (125 grams)
Condensed Milk (1 can)
Cocoa (3 Tbsp)
Whittaker’s Berry Forest Chocolate (2x 250 gram blocks)

We don’t have those biscuits, what could I use?

Malt biscuits are a biscuits made with malt and milk. Here is a description from Wikipedia.
They may be called malted milk biscuits, or Malt’o’milk biscuits in your country.

Any type of Vanilla biscuit will be fine to use.
You could use super wines or wine biscuits, you could also use Marie biscuits.

I don’t have access to that chocolate . . .

Not to worry you could simply use plain dairy milk chocolate and add your own Oreo biscuit crumbs and cut up raspberry lollies.

Can I make this slice a head of time?

You can even make the base days ahead of time, wrap it and place in the freezer. All you need to do to complete the slice is melt the chocolate and allow enough time for the chocolate to set before you plan to cut and serve it.

How do I store the slice?

Once you have cut the slice, place it into an airtight container or slice tin. Store in a cool place or in the fridge to avoid the chocolate melting.
