My grandma was a great baker. She made the most delicious peanut butter cookies and pumpkin scones. I’d love to say that this recipe is hers, but I don’t even know which grandma owns this one. My neighbour emailed it to me with the title ‘Grandma’s no-bake slice’ so I’m not sure which grandma made this one, but I’m telling you that I want her to be my grandma.
There’s a lot to love about this slice, from the chewy base to the creamy, nutty top, but what I probably love best is that it’s no-bake. Which, of course, means that we don’t even need to turn the oven on to make it happen.
It’s best left overnight to set, so plan ahead and give enough time for it to set completely in the fridge. To cut, use a hot, sharp knife (just dip into really hot water first).
Grandma’s No-bake Slice Recipe
Grandma’s No-Bake Slice Variations:
Don’t tell Grandma, but you can totally mix things up and make this how ever you please.
- Add chocolate chips to the base. If you like things really chocolate-y just add 3/4 cup of chocolate chips to the base to give it a little sweet hit
- Make the base chocolate. You can add 2 tablespoons of cocoa to the base to make it a chocolate version.
- Swap Milk Coffee biscuits for Chocolate Ripples. Chocolate Ripples are an Aussie fave, and they make base a little more chocolate-y and is a great way to mix this recipe up.
- Top with white chocolate. Instead of the hazelnut chocolate top, swap it for white chocolate. At Christmas time you can even add crushed candy canes for a Christmas-y spin.
