Apricot and White Chocolate Fudge Slice

Apricot and white chocolate fudge

Every year I send this to my son for Christmas….he asks for it. Totally decadent (and NOT at all healthy) it’s a truly morish delight, even his Mum will keep a piece out for herself ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s simple and fail proof but keep the recipe right – this should be a firm mixture and if it’s too soft add more biscuits and coconut.

1 cup sweetened condensed milk

125 g butter

350g shortbread biscuits

1 1/4 cup chopped apricots

350g white chocolate, chopped

1 cup coconut

Melt the butter and condensed milk together slowly. Crush the biscuits in a food processor (or bag and rolling pin) and transfer to a large bowl. Add coconut to the crumbs, stir in apricots and mix through the melted butter and condensed milk. Leave to cool a little then add chocolate. Sprinkle with coconut or drizzle with white chocolate. Mix thoroughly and press into a slice tin. Chill before cutting

  1. YUUUUUUM! This could be completely vegan with the substitution of coconut cream condensed milk and coconut oil for the butter…would be a sort of apricot white Christmas then methinks…now THIS I am gonna try! Might even pepper it with some “milk” and dark chocolate and some chopped up cherries and angelica as well. I didn’t bother to make fruitcake this year so these babies might just be my fruitcake salve ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yes, you could do all that and it would be very yummy! I love White Christmas and haven’t had it for years – I used to send a batch to England for my sister for Christmas many years ago.
      I am making some more with cranberries today for someone else. My other son is a bit more health conscious so he’s getting chocolate dipped apricots and strawberries.
      I was going to make Cathy’s gluten free Christmas Cake but never got there!

    • Oh my God!!! They look devine and so does everything else there! Oooh yum. I love raw foodie sites especially when they have such simply fabulous eats, thanks so much for that!
      Yes, the days of dreary eating for specialist diets are well and truly over, there isn’t a single thing I crave because I can’t replace them, it’s wonderful.

  2. Gorgeous recipe (and no, not healthy LOL). . . . and I happen to have condensed milk in the cupboard and was wondering what I might make with it. Tomorrow, I’ll get some apricots and coconut. Then I may take a leaf from your book and send it all to my sister’s with Mum (and keep a piece, or two, for me). Thanks so much.
    I love the honeycomb in a jar idea, too. Wonder if we are allowed to keep bees here? ๐Ÿ˜‰ not likely. ~ Linne
