and handed down from generation to generation. To Australians, slices in all their amazing and flavorful variations are an
integral part of childhood, backyard barbies, coffee with your best mates or just about any type of celebration and all-round good time.
A simple crunchy base, soft gooey caramel, topped with delicious dark chocolate.
This mouthwatering recipe comes from my mate Christine. There are few Aussie mums without a choc caramel slice in their repertoire — and this is one of the best! Consider them the choc chip cookie of the land down under. It’s a treat adored and craved by adults and kids alike.
Ingredients: Flour, brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk, butter, coconut, golden syrup, semi-sweet chocolate
A simple crunchy base, soft gooey salted caramel, topped with delicious dark chocolate and a sprinkling of sea salt.
The more ‘sophisticated’ cousin of our chocolate caramel. Starts with the same crunchy cookie base, but with a ‘salty’ caramel twist that makes it SO much more fancy.
Ingredients: Flour, brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk, butter, coconut, golden syrup, semi-sweet chocolate, pure vanilla extract, salt
A gooey mix of crushed butter cookies, coconut and cocoa, topped with a layer of creamy milk chocolate.
The name is a conundrum, but the delicious gooey chocolaty mix is anything but confusing and very easy to devour! A staple of Aussie coffee shops, some say its name refers to the color contrast of the brown and white mix. Or perhaps it’s just a hedgehog’s favorite food? We’d like to think it’s the latter — and would have to agree with the hedgehog!
Ingredients: Flour, butter, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, whole milk, coconut, cocoa powder, baking soda
A delicious chewy mix of golden syrup, coconut and oats (also available with GF ingredients)
This is the recipe that started it all. Based on the traditional ANZAC biscuit, this cookie has won the hearts of Aussies across the globe. Created by women during WWI to survive the long postal journey to their loved ones on the frontline, it’s a unique mixture of golden syrup, oats, flour, butter and sugar in a chewy, slightly gummy oaty mix. Try one — we guarantee an oatmeal raisin cookie will never look the same again.
Ingredients: Oats, flour, butter, brown sugar, coconut, golden syrup, baking soda, pure vanilla extract, raw sugar
Toasted almonds sprinkled over a mixture of caramelized dates, poured over a simple cookie base. Looks great – tastes even better!
My cuz Sue who lives in rural Australia sent this recipe. She’s a dynamic and fun loving lady that everyone wants around — and so is this slice! For Anglophiles — think of it like a sticky date pudding to go. Yummo!
Ingredients: Flour, brown sugar, sweetened condensed milk, dates, butter, coconut, golden syrup, sliced almonds, pure vanilla extract, baking powder, salt
A short crust base infused with coconut, topped with a tangy-sweet topping of passion fruit pulp and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
This one is for the citrus lovers. Each bite is a mouthful as intense and flavorful as Australia’s tropical north where I was born. We worked hard to get just the right amount of sweet/tang and outright gooeyness. Perfect served with a ‘cuppa’ tea or coffee.
Ingredients: Flour, sugar, coconut, butter, sweetened condensed milk, passion fruit pulp, freshly squeezed lemon juice, pure vanilla extract
A gluten-free short crust base sprinkled with coconut and topped with chopped hazelnuts, almonds, sliced dried apricots and sweet cranberries.
Everyone needs one in their life – something (or someone) that is slightly sweet, slightly salty, a tad nutty but always a delightful mix. We made this flavor with gluten-free ingredients for all our gluten intolerant friends.
Ingredients: Gluten free flour, brown sugar, dried apricots, sweetened condensed milk, hazelnuts, butter, dried cranberries, coconut, pure vanilla extract, salt
A tender short crust base infused with vanilla, topped with rich natural raspberry jam and finished with a crisp coconut meringue.
Growing up we had many extended family gatherings to celebrate just about everything. They were never complete without a tray full of Auntie Joan’s raspberry coconut slice. We replicated this sentimental crowd pleaser, and just like my timeless and stylish Auntie, it’s a slice that never goes out of fashion.
Ingredients: Flour, sugar, eggs, butter, coconut, raspberry jam, baking powder, pure vanilla extract, salt
A gooey, crunchy mix of pecans, walnuts and peanuts layered over a delicious cookie base (Gluten-free ingredients).
This one is TOTALLY nutz! Great for nut lovers and coconut-free. It brings out the squirrel in all of us. Just try hoarding them for yourself — we dare you!
Ingredients: Gluten free flour, sugar, butter, sweetened condensed milk, almond meal, peanuts, pecans, walnuts, white chocolate chips, salt
