Foodporn Friday: Chocolate Coconut Slices
I’ve been making this chocolate slice recipe for a little while now and everyone always comments on how good it is. Its the best thing I got from my antenatal classes 😛
I was given a magazine cutting so I cant credit the source, but its too good not to share!
- 250gr Butter
- 1 cup Sugar
- 2 TBL Cocoa
- 1 TBL Golden syrup
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 cup Coconut
- 2 tsp Baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cups Icing sugar
- 3 TBL Cocoa
Melt butter, sugar, cocoa and golden syrup in a large saucepan. Do not let it boil. Leave to cool a bit and then add coconut, salt, baking powder and flour.
Press into a baking paper lined baking dish (22 x 30cm) and bake at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Don’t bake for any longer or it will dry out.
Remove from oven, leave for 10 minutes and then ice with chocolate icing while still warm.
