Cherry-Ripe Chocolate Slice

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Australian

 Ingredients List

  • 500 g Eating chocolate (Cadbury's
  • -is the nicest)
  • 5 oz Copha
  • 1/2 lb Desiccated coconut
  • 1 cn (small) Nestle condensed
  • -milk (Approx. 400g net, I
  • -think)
  • 1 pk (100g) of cherries - fresh
  • -cherries could be used
  • Cochineal - red food
  • -colouring


This is based on a common Australian chocolate bar, and is really yummy,
though sickening if overindulged in! Copha is vegetable shortening made
from coconut oil. Enjoy!

Procedure: Melt half the chocolate (using steam - a microwave will burn
it!) and press into a slice tray that is layered with aluminium foil.
Refrigerate this till set.

Combine coconut, cherries, melted copha and condensed milk into a
semi-solid sticky mess. Add drops of cochineal till the mixture is pinkish.
Press this on top of the chocolate, pressing into the corners and
flattening out using a cold spoon. Refrigerate till set.

Melt the rest of the chocolate and cover the mixture, then refrigerate
again till chocolate hard. Remove the slice, foil and all, from the tray.
Remove the foil and cut into small squares. Remove all little foil bits or
they'll zap your teeth!

Keep refrigerated.
