    Add coconut and pulse on turbo 3-4 times to combine.
    Chop remaining 100g cherries into halves and add to bowl with condensed milk and food colouring.  Combine on speed 3 for 10 seconds.
    Spread filling over base and cook in a moderate oven for 30 minutes.
    Allow to cool completely before icing.

I don't know about you, but Christmas gives me an instant free pass to cook lots of deliciously bad treats.  This year I've been trying out a few new ones with pleasing results.I found this recipe for Cherry Ripe Slice and knew that it would be perfect for converting for the Thermomix.  It was really yummy - I only managed to have one small piece before it was all gone so I think I'll have to try it again before Christmas.  The icing was supposed to be just chocolate spread over the top, but I tried adding a tablespoon of cream to turn it into more of a set ganache so that it would be easier to slice.  I also added a couple of drops of red food colouring to the cherry mixture to make it more red.

    Delicious recipe and a favourite in our households Didn't have glacé cherries, so I used canned cherries.

    I made these this Christmas (before I got my Thermomix) Except instead of having a slice, I did the Filling and rolled them into Balls and Refridgerated for 2 hours then dunked them in the topping (minus the cream) and put little decorations on top.I baged these up with Rum Balls as christmas gifts and they were a HIT tmrc_emoticons.)

    Thanks for this recipe. I have made it as a gift, and also for a party.

    I am not sure if I did something wrong, but is the ganache supposed to be a little coarse looking in texture?? because mine wasn't exactly a smooth flowing mixture, but this may be what you mean when you said it is a "set ganache".  It tastes fine.
