This easy and delicious no-bake chocolate fish slice has a biscuit base and chocolate icing on top.
This chocolate fish slice is the ultimate cafe-style treat. It’s the baking WITH the complimentary chocolate fish as the icing on the cake. Crunchy on the bottom and chewy on the top this slice will satisfy your mid morning cravings nicely.
A bonus of this no-bake slice means you don’t even have to turn the oven on. The base ingredients are simply heated on the stove top before being pressed into the tin and the finished slice sets in the fridge.
HOW TO MAKE chocolate fish slice:
First of all line a slice tin with baking paper and set aside. Place the butter, cocoa and brown sugar into a saucepan and melt together, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove the pan from the heat, add the vanilla and milk then stir to combine.
Place the crushed biscuits into a large mixing bowl and add the melted chocolate mixture. Stir to combine then, press the mixture into the slice tin – you may have to use your hands for this.
Use a separate bowl to make the topping. Combine the icing sugar and cocoa first, then stir in the melted butter. Add boiling water if needed to loosen the mixture and help mix out any lumps.
Spread the topping over the base then place the chocolate fish in rows on top. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight before cutting into slices.
QUESTIONS ABOUT NO-BAKE SLICES:
How long does chocolate fish slice take to set? It takes around 3-4 hours in the fridge (even better overnight) but you can speed up the process by putting it into the freezer for 30 minutes.
How to store this slice? I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, (if it lasts that long!).
What biscuits can be used in chocolate fish slice? You can use any plain biscuits like Superwines, Milk Arrowroots or Maries. Even Krispies would work too.
What size slice tin do you use? My slice tin is 29 x 19 cm, the brand is Haven and I purchased from Farmers in New Zealand.
