This magic slice is so easy to make it has a biscuit base - layered with chocolate, coconut, dried fruit, almonds then covered in condensed milk and baked until golden.
I came across this delicious slice at a cafe and I wanted to recreate my own version of it at home.
This magic slice contains a lovely buttery biscuit base followed by layers of chocolate chips, shredded coconut, sultanas, sunflower seeds, slivered almonds and topped off with a layer of condensed milk which (when baked) holds the slice together.
Magic slice is so versatile you could swap the sultanas for any other dried fruit like apricot or cranberries. You could also swap the seeds and nuts for any others that you fancy, that’s the beauty of this slice, you can use whatever you have in the pantry.
How to make magic slice:
I used my food processor to crush the biscuits but you can use a rolling pin with the biscuits in a bag if you don't have one.
Once the base has been pressed into the tray you can start with your layers and then pour the condensed milk over the top which combines everything together and goes lovely and golden once baked.
Keep your slice in an airtight container in a cool place. Magic Slice is a great lunchbox filler the whole family will love. Lots of Kiwi families have their own versions of this easy slice and this one is ours.

This magic slice is so delicious and easy to make with a biscuit base layered with chocolate, coconut, dried fruit and almonds.
- 1 packet of Krispie biscuits (250g)
- 175g butter, melted
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 cup of dried fruit: sultanas, chopped apricots, cranberries etc
- ½ cup sunflower seeds
- ½ cup slivered almonds
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk (395g)
- Pre-heat oven to 170°C fan bake.
- Crush biscuits in the food processor until you have a fine crumb. Pour in melted butter and pulse until combined.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper and pour in the biscuit mixture. Push to the edges and flatten with a spoon. Ensure you press down firmly to prevent the base crumbling later.
- Scatter over in layers the chocolate chips, coconut, dried fruit, sunflower seeds and almonds, then pour over the can of condensed milk.
- Bake for 25-35 minutes until golden, let it cool and then chill in the fridge until ready to slice.

Had this delicious tray bake while visiting my son in New Zealand . I'm thrilled to have found your receipe
Thank you so much.
Thankyou for the recipe. This slice has become a staple in my house now!
Hi I don't have any biscuits other than chocolate ones. Can I make this with a sponge base?
I don't think it would work, sorry. The firm base allows the other layers to be stacked up. A sponge base would absorb the liquid.
Is it supposed to be 75g or butter instead of 175? I just did mine and the base was terribly oily and crumbly!
Sorry to hear that, Laura! The quantities are correct and I myself haven't had that issue. But on researching this I found 1) the biscuits need to be fresh (crispy, not chewy) and pulsed to a fine crumb to absorb the butter and 2) the mixture needs to be firmly pushed down with a spoon. I've amended the recipe to include these notes. Thanks, Vanya.
I just bought your recipe book, it's awesome!!! I want to make the cranberry magic slice but nut free. What could I use as a substitute for the almonds?
Thank you so much, Leanne! You could increase the amount of sunflower seeds to 1 cup, or make a mixture of sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds.
I’m going on a camping trip - how long does the biscuit slice last.
I usually recommend to keep this refrigerated for up to 5 days.
I love this slice.I make my own version depending on the ingredients I've got. I freeze it and I leave it in the pantry for 5 days to a week and it's still ok.
That's great to know! Thank you
