This is a treat. It’s a mighty delicious, super yummy treat. It’s my lemon fridge slice, that I’ve been making since I first started “cooking”. It doesn’t need to be baked, but as the name suggests, it does need to be kept in the fridge!
Packed with veggies. NOPE. Packed with sugar. It’s a treat, people! And everyone needs a little sweetness in their life. So trust me, it’s so delicious, you will wish you could eat it every day. Actually, you’ll probably find yourself trying to work out how many times around the block you need to run to compensate for a piece.
This is not something we eat every day, not even every week, but we all need some fun in our lives, and this is one of our treats. Eating this takes me back to my childhood as my grandma made this for me when I was little. I spent a lot of my time at her place when I was growing up, and a lot of time licking the wooden spoon right next to her on the bench.
So, I’m sharing a proper family secret with you sharing this recipe. It’s perfect to whip up for people coming over, you don’t even need to turn on the oven!
If you’re cheeky like me, do the melting in the microwave. The best part about it, is you set it in a container, so you can then just chop it up and return it to the container.
Keen to get started? I blitzed the biscuits in my food processor, but you don’t need one. However crushed your biscuits turn out doesn’t matter, because it just adds to the crunch of the base!
