Black Forest Slice aka Vickie Slice

My friend Vic Brown makes this for everyone, she always has a huge supply of chocolate and biscuits at the ready and can pretty much make this with her eye’s closed.
I have been the lucky recipient of plenty of Vickie slice over the years and know many others have too.
Vic says it freezes well too.  She generally makes two at a time and that way uses a full amount of biscuits rather than having any left over.

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 packets (375g/13.22oz) packet plain sweet biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 125g (4.4oz) butter
  • 2 x 180g bars Cadbury Black Forest chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 200g milk chocolate

Method

Line a 26 x 18cm slice tin with paper.
Place the biscuits and cocoa powder into the bowl of a food processor and blitz until crumbs.
Transfer the crushed biscuits to a mixing bowl.
Melt the black forest chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water or in the microwave on reduced heat.  Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a gentle heat
Mix the butter with the chocolate and then stir through the egg.
Combine the chocolate mixture with the biscuits.
Press the mixture into the tin and then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Gently melt the milk chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave on reduced heat.   Spread the chocolate over the slice.  Allow to set at room temperature before cutting into pieces.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

  1. mm this looks great. I’m going to make it for a Mum’s group where they appreciate something nice for morning tea. Thank you so much

  2. Hello all,

    The price for Cadbury’s Black Forest chocolate here in Canada is very high.
    I would like to make Vicki’s slice and was wondering if I could use plain Cadbury’s chocolate (cheaper) and add sour cherries or another type of cherry?
    Thank you all
