Classic Chocolate and Coconut Slice

Everyone needs a good chocolate slice recipe they can rely on. For me, this is it!










Ingredients for Slice

125g butter, melted
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 cup self-raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup desiccated coconut

Ingredients for Icing
1 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
10g butter, melted
1 1/2 tbs hot water

Method
Preheat oven to 160 degrees fan-forced. Grease and line a 19cm by 29cm slice pan. Combine butter, sugar, egg and extract in a bowl. Stir in sifted flour and cocoa; then the coconut. Spread mixture evenly over base of prepared pan. Bake about 30 minutes, or until firm. Remove slice from oven and let cool before icing. To make icing, sift sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Add combined butter and water and stir until icing is a spreadable consistency. After mixing well, add more water, if necessary. Spread on top of cooled slice and top with extra coconut. Will store in an airtight container for up to one week.
