There’s nothing like the simplicity and awesomeness of a quick chocolate slice to bring back memories of childhood… at least in my family. Mum would often make chocolate slice for us as kids and it was of course a favourite recipe growing up. It’s little wonder that I get my chocolate love from my mum, right!
Every now and again I want to flash back to that coconut and chocolate simplicity, and decide to make this choc slice recipe for the family. It takes virtually no time at all and usually lasts at least 2 days. Unless hubby gets into it, then it has little hope of lasting the day!
EASY CHOCOLATE SLICE RECIPE
- 1.5 cups Self Raising Flour
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 3/4 cups coconut
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 120g butter
- 1 egg
- 1.5 cups icing sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 20g soft butter
- 3 tablespoons boiling water
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line a slice tray with baking paper.
2. Mix together dry ingredients in large bowl.
3. Melt butter and beat egg together. Add to dry ingredients and mix well.
4. Press mixture firmly into slice tray and bake for approximately 25 minutes, until firm.
5. Mix icing ingredients together in a bowl to create a thick paste texture.
6. Add icing to slice while it is still slightly warm. Sprinkle coconut over the top.
7. Put in fridge to set. Cut into squares for serving.
You can alternatively create a chocolate buttercream icing to add to your slice instead, however this will not set as firmly and will make it more like a cake. This easy chocolate slice recipe is one you can put together quickly if you have guests dropping by, even if it is short notice!
