The Worlds Easiest Chocolate Coconut Slice

Now I have made this recipe more times than I can remember, it is very easy to put together. You can have it made and in the oven in about 10 minutes. Once it has cooked I leave it to cool in the tray then ice it.

The slice keeps well for at least a week in an airtight container.

The original recipe comes from a Women's Weekly Cookbook - The Big Book of Beautiful Biscuits. It is many years old as I only paid $4.98 for it.

This is the cover of my copy, I think there is a new version out.

Chocolate Fudge Bars
1 cup plain flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup dessicated coconut, 1 tbsp cocoa, 185gm butter - melted, 1/2 tsp vanilla essence, 1 egg

Chocolate Icing
1 cup icing sugar, 2 tbsps cocoa, 30 gm butter - melted, 1 1/2 tbsps hot water, extra coconut

Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl. add melted butter and half the water, mix together. Slowly add remaining water till icing a good spreading consistency.

Preheat oven 180.c. Line a 28cm x 18cm lamington tin with baking/parchment paper.

Bars - Mix together dry ingredients, add butter, vanilla and egg. Mix together well. Press in prepared tin. Bake 20 minutes. Cool in tin then ice and sprinkle with extra coconut.
