Picnic Slices Recipe

“This is a recipe that reminds me of baking with my mum growing up. We would always make a tray for fundraising events and it was always a winner. It also freezes well so it’s handy for any unexpected guests.”
– Vicky Whitaker – HR Business Partner



Makes 10-12 slices

  • 8oz milk chocolate
  • 4oz butter or margarine
  • 8oz desiccated coconut
  • 8oz caster sugar
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 4oz sultanas
  • 4oz glace cherries, quartered



Step 1

Preheat the oven to 140C/120C fan/gas mark 1

Step 2

Break the chocolate into pieces and melt. Pour into the bottom of a Swiss roll tin lined with foil, then allow to set.

Step 3

Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the beaten egg, coconut, sultanas and glace cherries. Mix well and spread evenly over the set chocolate.

Step 4

Bake for 45 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes, then mark into squares (don’t cut all the way yet).

Step 5

Leave until cold and then finish cutting into the squares. Enjoy a piece or two with a nice cuppa!
