I am always on the look out for new recipes, so it is a treat to go places and try other peoples baking for new ideas! This recipe for No Bake Chocolate Fudge Slice is from a very dear friend and was so easy to make too.
Originally this appeared in a fundraising cook book so unsure where the original recipe is from but it is a classic recipe for sure. You always know a recipe is a favourite when the page is covered in chocolate! In fact I am sure some of the best recipes around have been handed down and appear in school fundraising cook books all over the world!
It brings me onto an interesting point, the origins of recipes. I often joke that there are surely only so many ways to make say an Afghan biscuit for example – it is hard in some instances to claim a recipe as completely your own. Often when we think a recipe is our own version a quick google will show you that it or a close variation already exists.
I always try and credit the original recipe ‘owner’ where possible, but often if I am going to share a recipe I will look it up online and find the recipe exists in many other places so it is a tricky business. What I do work on is adapting it to suit my cooking style and using my own words and methods.
I do love receiving new recipes to try so if you have a lovely family favourite do let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can test it out and may feature it on my blog if you are happy to share with the world!
Onto this recipe for No Bake Chocolate Fudge Slice, there are only a handful of ingredients and it is a very versatile. My friend jazzed it up with a gorgeous sprinkling of cranberries and pistachios, but you could easily use cranberries or almonds, it definitely lifts the basic recipe. Also the original version called for coconut and sultanas, but in the slice I tasted there were neither so you can absolutely make this one your own.
You can either use Malt biscuits or Super Wines, the Malt seems to give it a more fudgy finish, but either is just lovely. I recommend blitzing the biscuits up as finely as you can, this seems to make the finished slice more moist. So even finer than I have done in my images. I used melted chocolate in this version but I think my basic chocolate icing would be just as delicious – if not more so! I have included instructions for both below.
Do you love no bake slices! I have so many now, all of them delicious and very popular, check them out below
Without further ado – onto the recipe, I hope you enjoy this No Bake Chocolate Fudge Slice.
I hope you enjoy this simple recipe, with the gorgeous bright topping it would be perfect for Christmas time but indeed any time of the year!
