Uncooked slices

spdip, Apr 21, 11:52pm
I do baking with a group of teenagers which we then sell for fundraising, etc. I thought for a change I would do uncooked slices for the next round, as to be honest these kids don't have a lot of baking skills and unless I keep an eye on the timer and the recipe, you can never guarantee a good outcome.

Looking for simple slices, that can be made by teenagers with limited cooking skills. I already have lolly cake (with jubes, licorice allsorts, etc variations) and the good old fudge cake (made with round wines). I know there are a few variations on fudge cake, but all my recipe books are packed away at present.

Thanks for your help.

115g butter
85g brown sugar
½ x 395g can sweetened condensed milk
1 x 250g packet wine biscuits, crushed
½ cup firmly packed, chopped dried apricots
caster sugar

Heat the butter, brown sugar and sweetened condensed milk just until the butter melts. Remove from the heat and add the biscuits and the apricots. Mix well, then press the mixture into a greased and base-lined 19cm square tin. Allow to set for a few minutes, then sprinkle the top with caster sugar. Set in the refrigerator, then cut into fingers. :-))

Thank you so much, keep them coming, as we do baking once a month and really need to start thinking beyond the kids favourite recipes. But because there is only one of me and usually 8 of them, it is hard to keep an eye on them at the same time ensuring they are doing it right. One girl thought she could just throw the flour etc in until it "looked right". Pointed out to her that until they are very familiar with the recipe even the professionals don't cook that way.

So have a look at the Sweet Treats tab at top of the page but here are a couple of my no bake slices - just heating on the stove top some of the ingredients
