We all know and love a traditional ANZAC biscuit right? Well Lauren and I certainly do anyway! But sometimes you just need to change things up a little bit.
This ANZAC Slice still has the same great taste as your traditional ANZAC biscuits, but there’s no need to roll the mixture into little balls. Nope, you just pop it all straight into a tin and bake away! And just think of all those things that you could do with the time you save… read a magazine, have a cup of tea (or more likely do the laundry and vacuum the house!).
Anyway, this is a great recipe for those of us who want to save a little time, but still want that great ANZAC taste. Seriously, nothing can beat the delicious chewy caramel flavour of an ANZAC. This slice is perfect for little lunch boxes. Simply cut it into squares or bars and you’re set to go. This is one super delicious treat… and the chance of it coming home from school uneaten are pretty much zero!
