This no-bake Christmas slice has a delicious biscuit base and is topped with peppermint white chocolate, candy canes and M&Ms.
I love to make slices and this no-bake Christmas slice is a winner! My husband Mike and I can’t stop stealing pieces of it out of the fridge. It is the perfect sweet treat to serve this festive season.
This Christmas slice has a delicious base made with crushed biscuits, dutch cocoa, brown sugar and butter. Peppermint white chocolate is spread on top then M&Ms and crushed candy canes are sprinkled over.
HOW TO MAKE NO-BAKE CHRISTMAS SLICE:
First of all crush 2 packets of biscuits in a food processor, don’t crush them too finely as you still want to see some of the biscuit pieces.
Melt the butter, cocoa and brown sugar together in a saucepan. Keep stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat, add the vanilla and milk then stir until combined. In a large mixing bowl combine the crushed biscuits with the chocolate mixture.
Add the mixture to a lined slice tin. Press down with a spatular and push it out to the edges. Smooth out the top with the back of a metal spoon. Chill in the fridge while you make the topping.
Melt white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts until smooth, stir in the oil and peppermint essence. Pour it over the base and smooth to the edges. Put candy canes into a bag and break up with a rolling pin. Sprinkle them over the white chocolate. Scatter over red and green M&Ms.
Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours until set. Take out of the fridge 20 minutes before cutting into slices (this makes it easier to cut).
CHRISTMAS SLICE QUESTIONS:
What biscuits can be used in Christmas slice? You can use any plain biscuits like Superwines, Milk Arrowroots or Maries. Even Malt biscuits or 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.
How long does Christmas slice take to set? It takes around 4 hours in the fridge (even better overnight) but you can speed up the process by putting it into the freezer for 40 minutes.
How to store Christmas slice? I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, (if it lasts that long!).
