Remember the chocolate hedgehog slice Mum used to make? It was a nice little treat and she used to whip it up for morning teas.

We’ve found a retro recipe for you that uses just three ingredients to recreate this classic slice. Yum!

  • 125g shortbread biscuits
  • 200g Milk or dark chocolate
  • 30g Copha
  1. Crush up the biscuits by placing them in a plastic zip lock bag and crushing them with a wooden spoon.
  2. Place the chocolate and copha into a saucepan, stir constantly until both ingredients melted completely.
  3. Combine the mixture with the biscuits, stirring so that all of the biscuits are distributed evenly.
  4. Place mixture into a creased 25cm pan, patting the mixture flat and place into the fridge to cool.
  5. After finished cooling, slice into rectangles and ice with chocolate frosting or desiccated coconut (optional)

  3. I remember when kid growing up in the early 50’s you could buy a brown paper bag of plain broken biscuits for 1/6d. Maybe that’s how they were created, but only biscuits, copha, icing sugar , cocoa, maybe coconut if you could afford it.

  4. Valerie Smith more mum memories! The old hedgehog slice made with the broken biscuits at the bottom of the tin…Yum!
