My cousin recently moved from Melbourne and handed down a stack of cookbooks to me. One of the books that caught my eye was the “Country Women’s Association Classics”. I picked it up, opened it randomly and made this slice, which has been tweaked by Missemzyy.
The Country Women’s Association have a reputation for being excellent cooks. Combined with their support to families and communities, particularly in rural areas, they are truly worth recognizing. The association has been operating for more than 60 years and their recipes passed down through the generations showcase family favourites as well as local and seasonal produce.
The great thing about this slice is that its no-bake!
- 125g unsalted butter
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 cup castor sugar
- 10 Weet-Bix biscuits, crushed
- 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 cup desiccated coconut plus ½ extra for sprinkling.
- 1. Grease a 18cm X 28cm tin and line with baking paper.
- 2. In a saucepan bring the butter, milk and sugar to a gentle simmer until sugar has dissolved.
- 3. Combine Weet-Bix, cocoa and coconut in a bowl.
- 4. Pour butter mixture into the bowl and mix together using a spoon.
- 5. Press mixture into tin and sprinkle top with coconut. Allow to set in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or firmly set before serving.
