Cherry Ripe Slice (No Bake)

There is certainly no denying my love of no-bake slices. They’re completely fool-proof, are super quick and easy, plus they taste great! And this Cherry Ripe Slice is all of those things.. plus so much more.

I’m also the biggest fan of old cookbooks. You know the ones that have been handed down through the family, have yellowing pages (and are filled with crazy-delicious recipes). Well this Cherry Ripe Slice is based on the recipe in a very, very old CWA cookbook. I swear that you can’t go wrong with a CWA recipe.

I loved how quick and easy this recipe was. It was literally in the fridge before I knew it. I’m usually really good at waiting overnight (or at least a few hours) before cutting my slices, but I honestly just couldn’t wait this time (hello choc-cherry cravings!) and so I cut it up a bit too early. Naughty me! And yep, that’s why the chocolate topping has smeared a bit in the pictures – it hadn’t quite set. Oh well, it still tasted absolutely delicious (and was soooo worth cutting it up early).

This really is the perfect slice to have with a cuppa. And if you’re a fan of Cherry Ripe’s then you’re going to go crazy for this! Next time, I’m going to have a play around with the recipe and make a Bounty version. Mmm… geez I love coconut!

This slice looks so yum, Lucy!! 😀 I’m all about not being able to wait for things to set, so I always cut no-bake slices too early! Your topping still looks fantastic, though!

This is my sort of slice too – my mum has always loved the slice so it was probably one that we had more than others and loved for sentimental reasons but today it still tastes good and I love how gorgeous your slice looks – I have tried this sort of thin in cakeballs and it works really well that way too.

Old recipes are recipes of the best kind, don’t you agree? This looks cherry-licious!

Great recipe. I have been known to love a cherry ripe slice myself. Those old cookbooks are gems aren’t they?
