Dried Apricot Slice


Dried Apricot Slice is the latest offering from the  Magnificently Simple Marvellous Slice Recipes Cook book. I’ve been making a version of this recipe for years using glace cherries, which is delicious.

100gm dried apricots, chopped

100gm plain sweet biscuits, crushed (as always, I used Arnott’s Marie biscuits)

2/3 Cup sweetened condensed milk

50gm marshmallows, chopped

25gm chopped nuts

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Mix everything (except the coconut) together. (At this point, my niece S, who is 12, said the mixture looked like cat’s vomit. I have to agree, and the red bowl I was using didn’t help the appearance. Have a look at the photo below and tell me what you think).

Marshmallow 2

Sprinkle a sheet of baking paper with coconut and roll into a log.

Refrigerate until set, then cut into slices.
