White Christmas Slice

This is my mother's absolute favourite! I'm making it, ahead of time, to give to her on Christmas eve (tomorrow!!!).  It is a popular Christmas time sweet for Australians.  Have you heard of it? Well, I can't even begin to describe how good it is.  Makes 9 large slices; beware they vanish as soon as they're made.

Ingredients
125g copha
70g icing sugar
90g sultanas, or mixed fruit
50g glacé cherries, chopped roughly
45g desicated coconut
55g full cream milk powder
40g rice bubbles cereal

Method

Line a 15cm by 15cm square tin.  Melt the copha on low heat in a saucepan.  Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients.  Once copha is melted (to liquid form), pour over the bowl ingredients.   Stir toghether so that everything is coated well; ensure no powder fragments are visible.  Spoon into prepared tin and smooth out.  Chill in fridge for few hours until firm enough to cut into slices.  Share out the White Christmas goodness! Store in the fridge.

  4. I have a love/hate relationship with it - I love eating it but then I always feel a little bit ill afterwards - it must be the copha.

  7. I am always learning new things and "white Christmas" is one of them! Also, I do not think that we can get Copha in the US (I googled it). I know that your Mum will enjoy it!

    Merry Christmas, Brittany!

  17. My mouth is watering!

    I actually first thought that your White Christmas Slice should be turned into a soap. Sounds odd, but if you check out this site you'll understand: http://www.pinkparchmentsoaps.com

    My favorite that they have is this one: http://www.pinkparchmentsoaps.com/item_46/Strawberry-Cheesecake-Soap.htm
