One of the first recipes that I posted on Bake Play Smile was for my favourite jelly slice – it’s the one that I’ve been making forever and it will always be the ultimate jelly slice to me! But oh my, oh my!!! How time flies… I just double checked and it turns out that I posted the original jelly slice recipe on here over 3 years ago… WHAT!!!?? How did that even happen!!??

Anyway, rather than let this little gem of a recipe disappear into my old archives, I decided that it needed to be front and centre again. So here it is, my super easy jelly slice… this one will definitely keep you coming back for more and more!

Easy Jelly Slice ImageLet’s just start off by saying how pretty this slice is. I mean, check out those cutesy 3 layers! And a pretty slice is a yummy slice – of course!! And you can use absolutely any coloured jelly you like for the topping. I usually stick with raspberry or strawberry, but feel free to go crazy!! I’ve seen some gorgeous versions using blue and green jelly at kids birthday parties – very cool!

The trick to getting this jelly slice just right is to make sure you allow enough time for the middle layer to set before pouring on the jelly. Once it’s set, gently pour over your jelly and pop it back onto the fridge. Once the jelly layer has set firm, cut it into slices and EAT, EAT, EAT!!

    Hi. I chanced upon your recipe and wish to make this using 9×13″ rectangular tin. Would you be able to advise the amount of ingredients needed?
    Thanks

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Amanda, that should be fine – it will just be a bit thinner of course. Otherwise, you could do 1.5 times the ingredients. xx

  2. Kelly says:

    Hi, would this keep solid enough in a lunchbox? Or does it soften out of the fridge?
    I made your Caramello Slice already! It’s a hit! My 3 yr old said it’s “yummilicious”

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Kelly, you ‘can’ put it in lunch boxes but it does soften and goes goes wobbly. I’d pop it in a little individual container. So glad your 3 year old liked the Caramello Slice! xx

    I have been making this recipe for as long as I can remember, and that’s a long time! However I find it thickens up a lot quicker if the condensed milk is really cold. Perhaps that is because I live in Fiji where we really don’t have cold weather!! No matter where I take this slice to or what age group is at the function it is always one of the first plates to be empty..

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Fantastic tip!!! Oh I’m very jealous – Fiji is so beautiful!
