Hedgehog Slice


Pre Time: 10 mins (plus at least 2 hours to set in fridge)
Cook Time: 5 mins
Serves: 12


  • 80g butter
  • 395g sweetened condensed milk
  • 120g gluten free dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 160g gluten free scotch finger biscuits, crushed
  • 70g desiccated coconut (1 cup)
  • 100g skinless hazelnuts (1 cup) toasted


  • 280g gluten free dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


Grease and line a 13x28cm loaf tin with baking paper and set aside.

Place butter, sweetened condensed milk and 120g dark chocolate into a saucepan and melt over low-medium heat until melted and mixed together (or melt in microwave).

Add the crushed biscuits, coconut and chopped hazelnuts and mix together well.

Press mixture firmly into the prepared tin, pressing and flattening evenly across the base.

In the same saucepan (just wipe out any residual biscuit crumbs with paper towel), melt coconut oil and then add 280g dark chocolate and stir until completely melted.

Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the slice and refrigerate until set (2-3 hours).

Cut into squares and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Tip: Feel free to switch the hazelnuts for walnuts (which is the traditional nut for a hedgehog) or almonds, or add dried fruit like sultanas or diced apricots.
