Amazing Fruit Slice....mmmmmmmm

Been in a baking mood recently ( for the first time in a very long while ). Maybe its the cooler weather, maybe its a renewed interest in making my own and knowing whats in the food I eat, maybe its because the kids have gone back to school and I wanted interesting treats for arvo tea and the lunch box......whatever the case, I got my mojo on and made this divine Fruit Slice last week, took it to coffee with the girls and the response was very gratifying (as was the taste !!). So dig in lovely people - there is a new season upon us, and now is the time for getting handy in the kitchen again after a summer of fun ! (Here in Australia anyhow - in the Northern Hemisphere, enjoy your spring !!!)
1 packet malt biscuits crushed
1/4 cup milo (malted milk powder)
1/2 cup (1/2 tin) condensed milk
60gms butter
1 cup dried chopped apricots
1 cup sultanas
1.5 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup (1/2 tin) condensed milk
Melt butter and condensed milk together, combine with rest of base ingredients. Press into lined slice tin. Combine topping ingredients and smooth onto base. Refrigerate. (Note - I find that a tad more butter in the base works best to hold it all together.)
Once it has set, all that's needed is to cut it up and serve to ravenous crowds or at a dignified high tea with friends - the choice is yours !
