Chocolate Hedgehog Slice


The Base

  • 1 packet Marie biscuits (or other plain, sweet biscuits)
  • ½ cup (40g) desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 cup (150g) dark chocolate , chopped
  • 100g butter , chopped

The Chocolate Topping

  • 1½ cups (225g) dark chocolate , chopped
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil


  • Line a 28cm x 18cm slice tin.
  • Place biscuits in a zip-lock bag and squeeze to remove excess air. Place on hard surface and hit with rolling pin to crush biscuits - make sure not to crush too fine - you want some larger chunks left in there to create that hedgehog crunch.
  • Transfer crushed biscuits into a large bowl. Add coconut and cocoa. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, combine dark chocolate, butter and sweetened condensed milk. Stir over low heat until melted and fully combined. Cool mixture for 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into dry ingredients. Stir to combine.
  • Press mixture firmly into prepared pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
  • Once the base is firm, place dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals until melted, stirring between each allotment. Add vegetable oil and stir until smooth.
  • Pour chocolate topping over slice and spread evenly. Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes or until set. Cut into squares to serve.
