  • 2-3 teaspoons boiling water

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to moderate (180 degrees celsius, fan-forced).

  • Stir through coconut.
  • Stir through sifted flour and cocoa until well combined.
    choc coconut slice method
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared slice tin and press out evenly using your fingertips. Even out further using the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Make the icing during the baking time as this slice is iced while hot.

Icing

  • Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl.
  • Add coconut and mix to combine.
  • Stir through condensed milk.
  • Add enough of the boiling water to form a paste that will be runny enough to spread over the biscuit base.

  • Place in fridge to set.
  • Once set, cut into 24 pieces.
