Today I'll tell you how to make another Lithuanian sweet called "Slacker". Yes, that's right - slacker ;D It is direct translation from Lithuanian word "Tinginys". Maybe you know this recipe from somewhere else and know a proper name for it in English? If so, be sure to let me know in comments, thanks! OK, so here is what you will need:
  • 1 pack of butter
  • 2 larger spoons of cocoa
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk 
  • 3 packs of cookies (simple, hard ones, one pack should weight about 190 grams - 7.6 oz)
  • Optional - handful of crushed nuts or coconut shavings 
Let’s get a big and comfortable bowl (as always lol). Melt the butter on small fire, add two spoons of cocoa and can of sweetened condensed milk. Mix them together while still on fire! Turn of the fire when the mass is nice and even. Add 3 packs of fractured cookies. And if you like handful of crushed nuts or coconut shavings (I like both, so I always use them). Mix everything up :) Get a form that would fit all of the mass, and tile it with polyethylene so it would be easy to take "Slacker" out later. Put all of the mass into the form, don’t be afraid to add a little pressure so it would spread nicely. If you want to make slacker look pretty, sprinkle the top of it with whatever you like (crushed nuts, coconut shavings do the job perfectly). Final step - to the fridge! You should cool it for about 5-6 hours (best is to leave it for the night). After the night you should have one solid, very sweet and tasty "Slacker". Have a good Nom Nom! :)
