Ask a Chef reveals the secrets of those superb dishes you ate in cafes and restaurants and wanted to try making.
Coffee Post's Hello Rosie slice
100g melted butter
1 packet malt biscuits, crushed
1½ cups desiccated coconut
1½ cups long-thread coconut
2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 cup sultanas
1½ cups walnuts, chopped
500g condensed milk
Heat oven to 170degC.
Mix base ingredients together and press into a 20cm x 30cm pan. Refrigerate.
Meanwhile, mix all the topping ingredients in a large bowl. Press the well-mixed topping on to the refrigerated malt biscuit base.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until the edge is lightly browned.
Allow to cool, refrigerate overnight, then cut into squares.
