Easy Zingy No-Bake Lemon Slice

With just 15 minutes preparation, this no-bake lemon slice is the easiest sweet treat you'll ever make! Going down a treat in school lunch boxes or as an afternoon snack, this zingy, zesty bite is a winner.


INGREDIENTS:
1 x 250g pack gingernut biscuits
1 x 250g pack plain sweet biscuits, such as round wine or arrowroot
1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon, plus extra zest, to decorate
2 tbsp lemon juice
250 g butter
395 g can condensed milk
ICING:
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice, or to your taste

METHOD:
1. Spray a 32 x 18 x 3cm Swiss roll tin with non-stick spray; line with baking paper.
2. Use a processor to crush biscuits to fine crumbs, or place in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin. Mix in coconut, zest and juice; stir or pulse to combine.
3. Melt butter and add the condensed milk, then stir into biscuit mixture till thoroughly mixed. Press into the prepared pan. Cover with another piece of non-stick baking paper and use a can from your pantry to smooth and compact the mixture. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm. Make the icing (see below).
4. Pour on the icing and spread with a spatula. Place in the fridge to set. 

Icing:
5. Place icing sugar in a bowl, add lemon juice to taste and just enough water to make a spreadable consistency.

NOTES: If you want a softer icing, add more liquid. For a firm, sliceable finish that will withstand the lunchbox, use as little liquid as possible and chill in the fridge.
