Here in Australia, we call them slices, but I’ve discovered that most Americans have no idea what I am talking about when I ask for their best ‘slice recipe’.
It seems Americans call them bars, but whatever you call them, they are delicious and I need to make a whole bunch of them for a school event this week, so here are twelve of our favourite slice and/or bar recipes!
Twelve Delicious Bars and Slices
Mars Bar Slice from Best Recipes – super easy no-bake recipe.
Apple and Rhubarb Slice – an easy to make family favourite of ours.
Chocolate Coconut Slice from The Organised Housewife – easy and delicious.
Lemon Meringue Slice – a little more tricky my my family LOVE this slice.
Anzac Slice from Childhood101 – an Aussie favourite turned into a slice.
Cookies and Cream Meltaways from Lemon Tree Dwelling – no-bake, over the top goodness.
Strawberry Lemonade Bars from Averie Cooks – these taste as good as they look!
Malteser Slice from Bake Play Smile – an easy, no-bake slice.
Turkish Delight Brownies – a quick and easy brownie recipe that you can customise with your favourite chocolate bar.
Chocolate Caramel Slice from Donna Hay – mine never set quite right, but they still taste great.
Raspberry Streusel Bars from Sally’s Baking Addiction – these are really good.
Crazy Gooey Cookie Bars – these don’t travel so well but they are really good!
What do you call them? Bars? Slices? or something else entirely?

In the Canadian prairies, we cut them into small squares and call them ” Dainties”. Along with small tarts and finger sandwiches we serve them at bridal and baby showers. Our local favorites are Nanaimo squares. peanut butter confetti squares and Butter tarts.
Oh ‘Dainties’ I like that name!!

I live in an international community and most people were confused when I said I was making a slice. The brits and some americans call them “tray bakes” and others call them “bars”. I don’t care what they call them, as long as they share, especially “7 layer bars”.
