About this recipe: A dead easy traybake that is 'dreamy' because this is a retro recipe from the 70s. If you don't have cocktail cherries, use tinned, drained black cherries. Enjoy!


Serves: 24 

  • 110g butter
  • 125g digestive biscuit crumbs
  • 1 (397g) tin condensed sweetened milk
  • 170g plain chocolate chips
  • 250g cocktail cherries, chopped
  • 75g desiccated coconut

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Melt the butter in a 20x30cm baking dish. Sprinkle the digestive biscuit crumbs over the melted butter. Pour the condensed sweetened milk evenly over the digestive biscuit layer. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and chopped cherries over the milk in a random fashion. Then sprinkle the coconut over the top of everything.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.

Don't think i will be making this recipe again was far too gooey for my liking. - 10 Mar 2012


I didn't fancy layering biscuit crumbs on melted butter in tin so mixed them together then pressed mixture into tin - as you would for a cheesecake base. Once cooked I chilled in fridge - much easier to cut and lift from the tin. - 20 Apr 2016
