Apricot & Coconut Slice (No Bake)

I have to say that I seriously love this classic Apricot Coconut Slice! It’s based on a good old-fashioned recipe in one of the CWA cookbooks – with a few little changes!

Apricot & Coconut Slice

This is one of my favourite slices to make for a few reasons. First of all, it’s completely no-bake. And I LOVE anything no-bake. Second of all, I usually have all of the ingredients in the cupboard which means no extra trips to the supermarket – happy dance!!!

Apricot & Coconut SliceIf you want to try something a little different, you can always add some white chocolate chips into the mix as well. I always do that when I’m craving a chocolate fix. My thought is that the apricots totally make up for the naughty chocolate. Hehe! You can also drizzle a bit of milk chocolate over the top in place of the sprinkled coconut – that’s always a bit of fun (especially eating all of the leftover melted chocolate in the bowl!).

So yep, this is one super versatile and delicious slice. It’s seriously good on it’s own and just as good when you change it up a bit. I really do love a good old classic slice.
