White Christmas Slice recipe

 
An Aussie favourite at christmastime is 'White Christmas' slice.
This crispy no-cook slice is great to make with kids. A few pieces wrapped in cellophane can make a great christmas present for them to give (that's if the adults haven't eaten them all first).


Ingredients:

1 cup of coconut milk powder 
3 cups of rice bubbles
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 cup of dessicated coconut
1 cup of mixed dried fruit
250g Copha, melted and cooled off
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence

****

Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the melted copha and vanilla, and mix in.
Pour into a lamington tin lined with baking paper. Press the mixture evenly into the tin.
Chill in the refrigerator till set and firm, about 2 hours. Cut into squares to serve.

 
A gift idea: here I have used a thrifted glass dish and piled on the pieces of slice. Then wrapped it up in cellophane and tied with a ribbon.
Enjoy!

I have never seen coconut milk powder. Is rice bubble the same as our Rice Krispies. What is icing sugar and Copha. The recipe looks great...LOL

Hi Frummie,
I checked the ingredients with my neighbor, Sharon, who is from America. She said there is nothing like copha in America. Copha is solidified coconut oil. (and only available in Australia, New Zealand does have it too, by another name) I buy the coconut milk powder at our local supermarket, Ayam brand, it is next to the cans of coconut milk. You can use milk powder instead if you like. Rice krispies are the same as rice bubbles.
Cheers,
Sandi

Oh, I forgot, and icing sugar is called powdered sugar in America.

I love this idea! I follow a dairy free, gluten free, no refined sugars diet for health reasons. The first two requirements are all ready taken care of, and I can easily adapt the recipe for the third. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe!

Last time I looked Ayam brand coconut milk powder also had milk powder in it so not dairy free
