Makes: 30 pieces. Time: 20 minutes.
|250||g packet of chocolate ripple biscuits or other plain chocolate biscuits.|
|125||g of melted butter|
|4||cups of desiccated coconut|

|1.||Grease and line a 20 x 30 cm pan. Place the biscuits into a food processor and process until fine crumbs form. Add butter and process to combine. Press into the base of the pan. Chill.|
|2.||Meanwhile, combine coconut, condensed milk, glacé cherries, and vegetable shortening in to a large bowl. Add a few drops of food colouring, (I also added a teaspoon or two of cherry brandy essence for extra scrumminess! But this isn’t technically in the recipe) and mix well. Spoon mixture evenly over the prepared and chilled biscuit base. Refrigerate until firm.|
|3.||Cut the slice in to 4cm pieces. Spoon the melted chocolate in to a zip lock bag and snip the corner. Drizzle over the square of slice, chill until set before serving.|
