Hedgehog Slice

IMG_6563

With all the salads that have been going on around here, I would hate to give you the wrong idea. For while I love my fair share of green goodness, I also have a bit of a sweet tooth (ok a lot of a sweet tooth) that must simply be indulged from time to time.

Particularly when there is chocolate and walnuts involved and no baking required…

Straight from the Nestle Cookbook – and into our hot little hands (which were actually quite hot on this particular day – owing to the Summer heatwave….)

Funnily enough, I didn’t always have a sweet tooth. No – I used to prefer savoury treats to sweet – think cheese and crackers over chocolate -  but it seems that the sugar cravings I had when pregnant with Charlotte never really left my body. Or perhaps I am just getting older – and tastes do change over time?

Either way – this hedgehog slice hit the spot just perfectly  - with the added bonus that it could serve as my contribution when asked  to bring ‘dessert’ to a late lunch a while ago (and no oven required!)

And oldie – but a goodie – and one that I will make again I’m sure.

What about you? Do you prefer sweet or savoury?

  1. That looks delicious! I have a horrible sweet tooth that I'm trying to squish during marathon training. I am pretty good about making things like this, enjoying a little bit, then sharing the rest.

    Guess I know what I'm doing this weekend. ;)

  2. this looks amazing - I have never had condensed milk in my hedgehog but I had one about a year ago that had condensed milk in it and it was so good I wished I could have get to the recipe but it was at a fete

  3. Oh Lisa! This is gorgeous. I feel like I haven't spoken to you in such a long time. I've been a bit slack visiting blogs and commenting. Hopefully all will return to normal once these kids go back to school next week. I'm featuring this one at tomorrow's party. thanks for linking up.

  4. I used to have such a sweet tooth as a kid, but as I got older my tastes changed and now I prefer savoury .. which is not good for my blood pressure!
