This is the best jelly slice I have ever had. I made it for friends from Perth who have never had it and I thought it was an Australian institution!!! They loved it. Jelly slice is popular in Melbourne. And although there are several stages to the making of this, it is not difficult. Remember to let each layer set before you do the next layer, and allow the jelly liquid to cool before pouring on top.
1 Packet Marie Bisuits, crushed (you can subsitute with any plain sweet biscuits)
170g butter melted
1 x 400g tin sweetened condensed milk
Juice of 2 lemons
3 level teaspoons gelatine
1/4 cup boiling water
1 packet red jelly crystals (you can choose different colour if desired)
- Base: mix crushed bisuits with melted butter. Press firmly into a slab tin. Place in the fridge until cold and set.
- Filling: In a medium bowl, blend condensed milk, juice and gelatine (disssolved in boiling water). Spread over base and refrigerate until set.
- Topping: Make up jelly as directed on packet, cool and pour over slice. Chill until set. Cut into squares to serve.
