Tips For Making A Hedgehog Easter Slice

  • You can use any brand of plain sweet biscuits (or cookies if you’re in the US). I generally use Arnott’s Scotch Finger biscuits. 
  • Roughly chop the biscuits (it’s fine to have some larger chunks remaining).
  • Use desiccated coconut (fine coconut), not shredded coconut.
  • You can use any brand of milk chocolate (or dark chocolate if you prefer).
  • Use full fat sweetened condensed milk as it sets firmer.
  • Add a little vegetable oil or coconut oil to the white chocolate when melting – this makes it easier to cut into slices
  • You can use any type of mini Easter eggs you like (I used Cadbury mini eggs which are small chocolate eggs with pastel coloured candy coating). 
  • Store this slice in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
