White Christmas Slice recipe is an Australian holiday classic that is easy to make and a delicious kid’s treat. It keeps really well, making it a tasty dessert to make in advance for when guest pop over.
Kellogg’s does a great job in recipe development. Every country has their own Kellogg’s recipe favourites (sometimes you don’t even realize it). Alongside White Christmas Slice, you might recognize other Kellogg’s favourites like Caramel Rice Krispies Squares, or Honey Joys made from Corn Flakes.
A few unique ingredients in White Christmas Slice. Copha is a vegetable shortening, made from hydrogenated Coconut Oil, which I have only seen sold in Australia. Sometimes I use Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from Aldi instead, as I try to stay away from hydrogenated foods. If you use Coconut Oil, the White Christmas Slice will need to be refrigerated until serving, otherwise it tends to fall apart if the temperature is near 24 °C (76 °F). When we lived in Canada, my wife used Crisco which worked really well.
