Something Sweet

Apricot and Coconut Slice
torn out of an ad in a magazine!

250g pkt sweet plain biscuits, crumbed
1 cup dried apricots, finely shopped
1½ cups dessicated coconut
195g can sweetened condensed milk
125g butter
1¼ cups milk chococlate buttons

Line base of 18cm x 28cm lamington pan with baking paper
Combine biscuit crumbs, apricots and coconut in a medium bowl
Place sweetened condensed milk and butter in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until butter is melted and ingredients are combined.
Pour into dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Press mixture into pan and refrigerate until set.
Pour melted chocolate buttons evenly over the slice. Allow to set. Cut into 24 squares.

On a day when you don't want to turn the oven on but are in the mood to "cook" and, more importantly, to eat these are delicious, very more-ish, and a hit with young and old alike. As I'm not too fussy about sticking with specific brands of food (generally - of course there are some exceptions) I have removed the direction to buy the brand being advertised!

A word from the wise (well I can be LOL) - although you might like to cut these into decent size square, a little really does go a long way.
