No-Bake Fudge Slice

My brother used to make this all the time. He would come home from college and dive into the baking tins and always eat this, great hunks of it (much to my Mums disgust) So Mum said he had to learn to make it himself if he wanted it because she wasn’t going to make it anymore. So he learnt it off by heart and can still tell what you need for it.

I made this for Christmas but used different biscuits (chocolate thins) and iced it with melted chocolate. Now believe me this version of the basic recipe is very rich and so only needs to be cut very small but the plainer version could be cut bigger. I find in the warmer months it is best kept in the fridge if it is not going to be eaten all at once – as a plate for a shared afternoon tea I mean!

125 gr Butter
½ cup white sugar
1 Tbsp cocoa
1 egg
A few drops of vanilla essence
250gr pkt of plain Biscuits (vanilla wines)

Crush biscuits. Place in a plastic bag and bang with a rolling pin being careful not to split the bag. Di not use a kitchen whiz as it fill make the crumbs too fine.
Line a 20 x 20 cm tin with greased baking paper.
Place all other ingredients except the vanilla in a saucepan and gently melt all. Do not boil.
Once it is all melted and steaming remove from the heat and add the vanilla, mixing well.
Add the crushed biscuits and stir until all the crumbs are coated then empty into the lined tin.
Press down with the back of a spoon to create a smooth flat surface.
Place in fridge to set.
Once set this may be iced.

You can add 1/3 cup of sultanas or chopped walnuts if you would like.
