Hedgehog Slice was always one of my favourite treats when I was growing up and I couldn’t believe that I had not yet made a Thermomix version of this classic slice recipe!
This Thermomix Hedgehog Slice is dangerously easy to put together and I guarantee you will not be able to stop at just one piece! It’s a little bit different to the classic Hedgehog Slice recipe as it uses condensed milk and doesn’t contain walnuts, however that doesn’t stop you from adding them if you like!

Thermomix Hedgehog Slice
- 2 packets of plain biscuits - Marie or similar
- 250 g of butter
- 3 tablespoons of cocoa
- 4 tablespoons of shredded coconut
- 1 tin of condensed milk
- 200 g of milk chocolate
Line a 20cm x 20cm square cake tin with baking paper, making sure you leave plenty hanging over the edges to help you remove the slice once it’s set.
Place one pack of the plain biscuits into your Thermomix Bowl and crush for 3 seconds on speed 4. Add the second pack and crush for a further 3 seconds on speed 4 - use your spatular/ wooden spoon to roughly break up any large biscuits and pour into a separate bowl and set aside until needed.
Pour the condensed milk into your Thermomix Bowl and add the butter (3cm pieces) and cocoa. Cook for 2 minutes on 60 degrees speed 1 or until the butter has completely melted.
Add the biscuits and shredded coconut to your Thermomix Bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 4 REVERSE or until the mixture has combined.
Pour the mixture into your prepared slice tin and flatten the surface with the back of a metal spoon.
Clean your Thermomix Bowl and make sure it’s completely DRY before adding the chocolate pieces. Cook for 2 minutes on 50 degrees speed 3 or until the chocolate has completely melted.
Pour melted chocolate over the top of your slice and place it in the fridge for 4 hours or until set.
If you prefer, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave. I like to cook it for 30 second spurts at a time, stirring well each time. By using a 20cm x 20cm tin your slice will be quite high (as pictured), if you prefer a smaller slice, simply use a larger tin.
