Jelly Slice

Jelly Slice by Baking Makes Things Better

This slice is easy to make and doesn’t actually require any baking, just a whole lot of leaving things to chill in the fridge.  Easy.  This slice would be great for kids parties; I used blackcurrant jelly but you could always use a green or blue jelly for a bit of colour and fun.

200g butter, melted
250g plain biscuits, crushed
3 teaspoons gelatine, plus 2 teaspoons extra extra
½ cup boiling water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
395g can condensed milk
1 packet jelly crystals

Grease and line a 21cm x 36cm tin with baking paper.  Combine the butter and the biscuits.  Press the mixture firmly into the prepared tin and then refrigerate.
Dissolve the gelatine in the boiling water.  In a medium bowl, add the lemon juice, condensed milk and gelatine mix.  Mix until well combined.  Pour over the biscuit base and then refrigerate for one hour or until set.
Make the jelly as per the packet instructions, adding in the extra gelatine.  Set aside to cool.  Once cooled, pour the jelly over the condensed milk mixture and refrigerate for one hour or until set.  Cut into squares with a warm knife to serve.


  1. Weekend project! Looks lovely and I remember my Nana used to make similar. Yummy!

  2. I love the way you take photos! Especially the cute vintage plates.

    Check out my blog!

  3. This looks fabulous! I can't wait to attempt a gluten free version of it. The fact it's no bake is wonderful for the hot summer days and I love the nostalgic look (I remember my mother making jelly topped slices).

    1. Oh cool - let us know how you get on making it gluten free. Send us a pic too!

  4. Oh thank you so quick and easy

  5. These look awesome! And sound relatively easy for something with three layers! It could be lightened up with lite condensed milk and weight watchers jelly crystals although I'm not sure how I'd get around the butter ;)
