Cookies and Cream Slice

Ok, so I'm now a fabulous cook/baker/chef, but that doesn't stop me from giving it a red hot go and having fun in the process. I will warn you that this is NOT a recipe for being healthy or trying to lose weight, this is one of pure indulgence! My Muddy Sister-in-law sent me this recipe a couple of years ago, I have a feeling it's from a Delicious cook book but I'm not 100% sure, so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!

I used my lovely Coles Gift Card I won from the Philly Comp run by Julie at Mama of 2 Boys to buy the Philly Cream Cheese to go in this recipe. Now when I make it I'll always be thinking of Margaret Fulton and how jealous I am that Julie got to meet her, she is my idol!

You will need:
350g Oreo Biscuits with filling
150g Unsalted butter, melted
2tsp Powdered gelatine
400g Cream cheese
300ml Thickened cream
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
200g White Chocolate, melted, cooled slightly
Melted Dark Chocolate to Drizzle

This is how it goes together:
Line a 4cm deep, 18cm x 25cm lamington pan with baking paper.
Process 250g of the biscuits in a food processor until fine crumbs(I use a stick blender or rolling pin). Then add the melted butter and process until all combined. Then press it all into the pan and put in the fridge to set for 30 mins.

Sprinkle gelatine over 1/4 cup cold water in a heatproof cup. Put the cup in a saucepan of simmering water and stir until dissolved.

Put the cream cheese, cream, vanilla extract and caster sugar in the mixmaster and beat until it's all smooth. Then you can stir in the gelatine and melted white chocolate.

Chop up the last 100g of Oreo biscuits and stir them through the cream cheese mixture. Once they're mixed through you can pour and spread the mixture over the chilled base and put itin the fridge to set overnight.

When you pull it out in the morning drizzle the melted dark chocolate over the top and return it to the fridge for 15 minutes until set. Then you're ready to slice it in the pan and serve it up!

Just so you know I used milk chocolate because I didn't have any dark chocolate and I have not perfected the art of 'drizzling' chocolate so mine doesn't look anywhere near as good as the picture but still tasted great!

Do you have a favourite recipe that's pure indulgence?


  1. I love caramel slice and cheesecake slice over in this neck of the woods but that looks absolutely delicious! (I love Margaret too)

  2. That most certainly is pure indulgence - dangerous! I love cream cheese in anything!!

  3. I really wish I hadn't seen this, because now I want to make some because it looks soooo good and I don't think my WW or my butt can handle it! But man it looks damn good!

  4. oh beegeebuz, that looks seriously dangerous,it looks so good and I can taste the richness from here!

  5. Now that looks like my kinda slice - YUMMO!

  6. I could do with a slice (or three) of that. You're a fabulous cook Nat, always have been xo
