Ever wondered how you could combine your love of pink lemonade and slice? Well here's the answer!

Super easy and definitely addictive! You should see my little cousin's smile after a few pieces!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 100g butter
  • 200g Arrowroot biscuits (or any type really)
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 lemon, rind finely grate (even some orange rind is lovely)

Icing

  • 2 cups icing sugar mixture
  • 40g butter, softened
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Natural pink colouring

 Method

  1. Grease and line a 3cm-deep, 15.5cm x 25cm (base) slab pan (see note). Place condensed milk and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until butter melts.
  2. Place biscuits in a food processor and process to fine crumbs. Combine crumbs, coconut and 2 teaspoons lemon rind in a bowl. Add hot butter mixture. Stir until well combined.
  3. Press biscuit mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours or until firm.
  1. To make lemon icing: Place icing sugar mixture, butter, 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice and pink colouring in a bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Spread icing over slice. Refrigerate for a further 30 minutes or until icing has set. Cut into pieces. Enjoy!
