For Mother’s Day I wanted to make my mum a little treat for our afternoon tea. I know she’s been a bit stressed out lately and needing to have a little relax. I thought why not make up a spiked jelly slice with her favourite wine Rosé. I used a silicone small loaf pan that way they could hopefully look good enough to have been bought. Whenever I’ve made any slice in a massive tray it ends up looking like shit the second I cut into it. This way no cutting needs to be done. So this makes 6 in a small loaf pan or 12 slices in a normal pan- depends on how you cut it.
150 g plain sweet biscuits, crushed to resemble a fine crumb
100 g butter, melted
1 x 85 g packet Aeroplane Create a Jelly / 2tsp Gelatine powder
1 x 395 g can sweetened condensed milk
1 x 85 g packet Strawberry Jelly (I used Aeroplane Jelly)
1. Line a slice tin with baking paper or spray your loaf tin. Mix your crushed biscuits and melted butter in a bowl. Put mixture onto the tin and press down on matures with the back of the spoon stop make base nice and smooth. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2. In a bowl mix the Gelatine/ Create a Jelly Mix with 250mls of boiling water. Syria mixture until dissolved then add the condensed milk. Stir until smooth. Gently pour over the base and put back into the fridge for 2 hours.
3. In a bowl, start making the jelly. Add the Strawberry Flavoured Jelly Crystals with 250mls boiling water and mix together. Then add 100mls cold water and 100mls wine. Mix all together and Allow to cool completely. If the jelly is still warm it will melt the previous layer and fuck everything up. Once cooled pour gently over the slice and refrigerate for 2 hours (I left it overnight).
4. Once jelly is set serve and enjoy.
