Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
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.
