Choc coconut slice

Giving credit where it’s due – this is my grandmother’s recipe.  She used to make it often when we were kids, and it was one of the things we specifically requested.

Awesome with a glass of milk (but then, what dessert isn’t?).

Choc coconut slice

Ingredients – slice:

  • 1 & 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 & 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup icing sugar

  • 250g butter, melted

Ingredients – icing:

  • 3 tbsp icing sugar
  • 3 tsp cocoa
  • 2-3 tsp water
