Chocolate Slice


Chocolate Slice.

This is one of those wonderfully quick and easy recipes. One of my favourites for when I don't have much time, yet need to take something to a friend who is sick.

Last week a lovely guy we know, fell and broke his patella (knee cap) in half. Ouch. Unable to do very much for himself and with his wife working in the city all week, we decided to take him some 'cheer me up' food.

Needless to say he loved the slice!

So without further rambling on my part, here's the recipe.

Chocolate Slice.

Ingredients:

  • 125g butter - melted
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup desicated coconut
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar

Chocolate Icing:

  • 1 cup icing sugar mixture
  • 2 tblsps cocoa powder
  • 2 tsps butter
  • 2 tblsps hot water


Directions:
  1. Sift together all dry ingredients
  2. Add melted butter and mix to combine
  3. Press into greased and lined slice tin
  4. Bake in moderate oven for 15 minutes. Don't overcook or it will go crumbly.
  5. Leave to cool in tin then ice with chocolate icing and cut into squares.


Didn't I say it was easy??

Enjoy!!
