With only 5 ingredients this lolly slice recipe is so delicious – a simple twist on classic Kiwi lolly cake
After the popularity of my classic lolly cake I thought it was time I posted a recipe for my lolly slice. I actually end up making it in slice form more often as it is much quicker to make in a slice tin than form into logs etc.
This lolly slice recipe is simple to make and takes a few minutes. It only has 5 ingredients: condensed milk, coconut, malt biscuits, butter and fruit puffs. You can use eskimo lollies, fruit puffs or soft banana lollies work well too.
Lollie slice is a favourite in our family, especially at kids birthday parties. My boys are always wanting to try a piece straight after it is sliced.
HOW TO MAKE LOLLY slice:
First of all melt the butter and condensed milk together. Then add to the crushed biscuits and chopped Eskimos or fruit puffs.
Mix it all together then tip into a lined tin. Spread it out to the edges then sprinkle coconut over the top. Set in the fridge for at least 2 hours then slice into bite sized pieces. Store in the fridge until ready to use.
HERE ARE SOME COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT Lolly slice:
How long does lolly slice take to set? It takes around 1-2 hours in the fridge (even better overnight) but you can speed up the process by putting it into the freezer for 20 minutes.
How to store lolly slice? I store mine in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, (if it lasts that long!).
How do you freeze lolly slice? Can it be frozen? Yes you can freeze it in an airtight container. It will last for approx 3 months in the freezer.
Can you make lolly slice without coconut? Yes you can just skip the step when you sprinkle over the coconut.
What can you use instead of Eskimos in lolly slice? There are lots of variations around. You can use fruit puffs or bananas. I have also seen versions with liquorice allsorts, clinkers and marshmallows.
What other biscuits can be used in lolly slice instead of Malt biscuits? You can other plain biscuits like Superwines, Milk Arrowroots or Maries. But Malt biscuits give it the most authentic taste. My friend Anna from Just a Mum has made a great version of lolly log with Girl Guide biscuits.
Who invented lolly cake? Where is it from? It originated in New Zealand in the 1940s according to Wikipedia, but the inventor is not known.
