I have a lot of no bake slices on the blog, simply because they are so delicious and easy! This is to add to that list and I hope you love it!
I have a very popular Ginger Crunch recipe that you can find here – the classic ginger crunch is buttery and gingery and oh so delicious. This no bake version is just as tasty but no need to bake.
This recipe has been around for years, I have found a few versions I tested but settled on this amended one from a Toy Library fundraising book – my favourite source of inspiration as the recipes are loved and tested often.
The ingredients for this one are very simple, the usual biscuit base with ginger and a simple ginger icing.
You will need:
Depending where in the world you are the biscuits will differ, here in New Zealand we can use wine biscuits, arrowroot or girl guide biscuits for the classic taste, elsewhere you may wish to use Marie biscuits, a rich tea biscuit or a sweet graham cracker.
Ginger is one of those flavours you either love or hate, I am not a huge fan of it myself but my husband is and he assures me these taste great!
The method for making them is very simple, you crush the biscuits then add the combined hot mixture of butter, brown sugar, ginger and condensed milk then stir this through the biscuits. While this base chills you can prepare the icing.
The icing is a simple mixture of icing sugar, butter, ginger and vanilla, this makes a lovely thick icing. I have doubled the quantities for this from the original recipe to give a lovely generous amount of icing, it works perfectly.
Once the slice has cooled you cut into squares and store in the fridge, or this freezes well too.
I hope you love this recipe as much as we do, be sure to let me know in the comments below when you make it.

Made this today , easy to make and soooo delish , thank you Anna X
Sure looks yummy i will try it
Hi, am unsure of what went wrong but after setting for several hours, tried to cut into slices and the base basically is still mainly dry crumbs and used the correct amount of all ingredients. Dont know how will eat it without falling apart in hands.
I am so sorry to hear that, very strange. I wonder why, this is a common ratio of butter to biscuits plus the addition of the condensed milk so it should not fall apart. Was it well pressed into the tin?
Ridiculously sweet, too much icing, and not enough taste. The icing needs golden syrup and less butter and icing sugar.

Bev McKay says
very nice, I love to make uncooked slices, you say this can be frozen, is that without the icing??
Sue Gavin Brooks says
About to try it but realized I have sweetened condensed milk. Is it ok to use that?
Can I freeze the rest of the condensed milk?
Yes. You can store leftover condensed milk in the fridge in an airtight plastic or glass container for up to 3 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months. It may separate in the freezer so just mix well before using. Alternatively I have dozens of other recipes that use condensed milk so search “condensed milk” in the search bar on my blog.
I love ginger. Another recipe to try. Thank you!
