I just found out that wombats have cubic poo...yes, it's really true! And in celebration, I have made up this recipe. And it tastes...nothing like I imagine the original does.
100gr butter or margarine
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
2 medium eggs, beaten
200gr (1 packet) crushed plain biscuits
½ cup coconut
½ cup chopped dried figs
½ cup chopped preserved (candied) ginger
¼ cup chopped almonds
100gr chopped dark chocolate
Cocoa powder, icing sugar or coconut for dredging
Melt the butter or margarine over a low heat. Add the condensed milk and mix in thoroughly. Whisk in the beaten eggs and cook for 2 minutes, stirring continuously.
Take off the heat and stir through the chocolate, then the fruit and nuts, coconut and lastly the crushed biscuits.
Spread in a tin and chill overnight. Cut into small cubes and dredge with cocoa, icing sugar or coconut.
