Egg Free Chocolate Hedgehog Recipe (with Thermomix conversion)

Some people have egg allergies. Some people do not like the idea of uncooked egg in their food. Some people often forget to buy eggs when they need them.

I am the latter. But whichever camp you fall into it can be nifty to have an egg free recipe for something delicious anyway.

I've been craving chocolate hedgehog slice lately. No idea why, just have. So here you go.


Ingredients:

1 packet Marie biscuits (around 200 grams)
100 grams butter
10 grams (or around 1 tablespoon) cocoa
110 grams castor sugar
150 grams condensed milk


Old School Assembly:

Pop the biscuits in a freezer bag, then put that inside another freezer bag then use a rolling pin to crush them up. Don't overdo it, you want nice chunks going on.

Melt the butter in the microwave or saucepan, then mix in the cocoa and sugar.

When they are well combined stir in the condensed milk. The mixture might look like it is separating a little bit... do not panic! It will be fine :)

Combine the crushed biscuits with the chocolate mixture then press firmly into a slice tray lined with baking paper.

Pop in the fridge to set for at least an hour.


Thermomix Option:

Put the biscuits in the bowl of the thermomix and run it for one second blasts at speed 4 until the biscuits are crushed. It is really easy to crush them up too finely so don't be tempted to just let it run!

Pop the crushed bickies aside, don't worry about cleaning out the bowl.

Put the butter in the thermomix bowl for 1 minute 40 seconds, 90 degrees speed 3.

Add the cocoa and sugar and mix for 10 seconds at speed 3.

Pour in the condensed milk and again run for 10 seconds at speed 3.

Pop the crushed biscuits pack in with the chocolate mixture, and combine for 15 seconds on reverse, speed soft (spoon setting).

Whack the mixture in a slice tray as above, pack firmly and set in the fridge for an hour.


Too easy right? Delicious too! You can ice the slice if that tickles your fancy, but we like it as is at our place.


Om nom nom nom. Enjoy!
