  • 250 g plain sweet biscuits - I used Arnott's Marie crushed
  • 225 g dried apricots finely chopped
  • 200 g sweetened condensed milk
  • 85 g desiccated coconut plus 1 tablespoon extra for sprinkling
  • 150 g salted butter cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Grease and line a 20cm x 30cm (8" x 12") baking tin (leaving extra overhanging the sides) and set aside (see my notes for alternatives).
  • Melt sweetened condensed milk and salted butter together in the microwave then mix to combine.

  • Add chopped dried apricots, crushed biscuits, desiccated coconut and vanilla and mix until combined.
    250 g plain sweet biscuits - I used Arnott's Marie, 225 g dried apricots, 85 g desiccated coconut, 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Tip base mixture into a greased and lined tin and press down well to compact (the base of a glass works well for this).
  • Sprinkle with extra desiccated coconut and place in the fridge to set.


  • If you don't have a baking tin the same size as I used, a little bigger or smaller is still ok. The apricot slice will just come out a bit thicker or thinner depending on your tin.
  • You could also use something else a similar size like a plastic container. Because we aren't baking this slice it doesn't need to be oven proof!
  • It's still important to grease and line your tin with baking paper (leaving extra overhanging the sides) even though we aren't baking this slice. The baking paper will help you get it out of the tin once it's set and greasing the tin/container holds the baking paper in place while you press the base into the tin.
  • If you have trouble getting the slice out of the tin once it's been set in the fridge, just fill the sink with a few inches of hot water and sit the base of the tin/container in the water for a few seconds. It will come right out!
  • I use a food processor to crush the biscuits. If you don't have one, you could pop them into a plastic bag and bash them with something heavy like a rolling pin or the flat side of a meat mallet.
