White Christmas slice

A spread of Christmas treats isn’t complete without some White Christmas slice. It’s creamy yet crunchy and sprinkled throughout with beautiful dried fruits. One piece is never enough! It’s no wonder it’s one of the most popular Christmas slice recipes in Australia.

The traditional recipe for white Christmas is very easy, and only takes 30 minutes. It’s a no-bake recipe, so it’s great to make as a gift, or to make with the kids as a fun Christmas activity.

This traditional recipe is made with Copha, which binds the ingredients and keeps the slice together even out of the fridge. This ensures a wonderfully crunchy slice that doesn’t crumble away when you bite into it.
