What are Clinkers? And where can I buy them?

Clinkers are an iconic Australian candy that is covered in chocolate. They can be bought in any major supermarket in Australia. 

If you’re overseas, you will be able to buy them through international grocers.

How to cut slices without the chocolate breaking – my top tips!

When it comes to cutting slices into neat little pieces, I am obsessive. It’s actually a little bit weird. BUT! If you’re anything like me, and love the look of perfectly cut slices and bars, then here’s my top tips:

  1. Use a hot, dry knife to glide easily through the chocolate layer. Run your blade under boiling hot water and dry it completely before slicing. Continue to heat and dry your knife as you go. 
  2. Add a tablespoon or two of coconut oil or vegetable oil to the chocolate when melting. This helps to stop the chocolate from cracking. 
  3. Allow the slice to come to room temperature (or at least take it out of the fridge for 30 minutes) before slicing.

Now that is what a call a super delicious slice! This is absolutely perfect for a lunchbox treat, cake stalls, fetes, birthday parties… seriously anything!

Enjoy! xx

  2. Margaret says:

    Hi can rice bubbles be used instead of plain biscuits ? Or will the slice not be as good ? Thanks

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hmmm I don’t think the base would be firm enough!!

  3. Anna says:

    Hi! Do u know if u can freeze this???

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

  4. Susie says:

    Hi Lucy
    Any tips on how best to cut the slice? Even after leaving it out of the fridge for a while, I find the chocolate still breaks randomly when I slice mine up. I’ve used the boiling water on the knife to heat it tick too, but never quite seem to get it right.
    Thanks so much
    Susie

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Susie, try leaving it on the bench for a while (almost to room temp), then grab a long large knife, lightly score the slice in a straight line a few times and then when you’re almost through the chocolate layer, press the knife down firmly. Repeat with each line and then use the same method to cut into smaller pieces. It’s a little bit time consuming, but stops the cracking! xx
