This is the sweet staple in my family, it gets made every month and it's always gone by the end of the day that it was made on! You can put raisins or sultanas in the mix but dried apricots are the tastiest.
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
3 cups vanilla wine or Girl Guide biscuits crumbed (usually a 250g packet)
1 cup Milo
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup of raisins, sultanas or dried apricots -chopped
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
2 Tbs baking cocoa
1 Tb butter
1/4 vanilla essence
2 Tb boiling water (approx -add more for easier spread)
- Place the condensed milk and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over a low heat, stirring, until butter melts, then set aside to cool.
- Place the biscuit crumbs, Milo, coconut and dried fruit in a bowl.
- Add the butter mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
- Press the mixture into a greased 27cm x 18cm x 3cm tin and let it chill for 30min. Ice with the chocolate icing and refrigerate until firm. Cut into small squares.
