What You Need

All you need to make Thermomix Christmas Hedgehog Slice is just 6 basic ingredients (scroll to the recipe card at the bottom for quantities):

  • plain biscuits – I like to use Arnott’s Marie biscuits but you can use any variety of plain biscuits you like (Scotch Fingers also work well)
  • white chocolate – choose white cooking chocolate or chocolate melts
  • sweetened condensed milk – full fat (not skim) is best as it sets firmer
  • butter – you can use either salted or unsalted butter
  • pistachios – you can buy roasted pistachios from any supermarket or health food store
  • dried cranberries – also known as craisins. These are available in the dried fruit section of the supermarket

Recipe Tips

It’s so easy to make our Thermomix Christmas Hedgehog Slice. Here’s some simple tips!

  • Crushing the biscuits – press Turbo just once or twice (for 1 second) and then break up any remaining large chunks with your hands. The Thermomix likes to turn your biscuits into powder if you’re not careful!
  • Use full fat condensed milk as it sets firmer than skim.
  • Grease and line a baking tray with baking paper to allow for easy removal of the slice.
  • You can substitute the pistachios and cranberries with any alternative dried fruits and nuts you like.

  • Freeze in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
