Mum’s Chocolate Slice

An chocolately oldie but a goodie, just like mum used to make. Great for the lunchbox or as an afterschool treat!

What you need

185g butter, melted
1½ cups brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup flour
⅓ cup self raising flour
⅓ cup CADBURY Bournville Cocoa
¾ cup desiccated coconut

1 cup icing sugar mixture
¼ cup CADBURY Bournville Cocoa
20g butter, extra, melted
Hot water

2 tablespoons desiccated coconut, extra, for sprinkling

Make it

  1. BEAT together the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla then stir through the sifted flours and Cocoa with the coconut, until well combined. Pour into a greased and base-lined 28cm × 18cm slice pan.
  2. BAKE in a moderate oven 180°C for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. SIFT the icing sugar mixture with extra cocoa into a bowl then stir in the extra butter and enough water to make a spreadable icing. Spread over the slice and sprinkle with extra coconut. Slice and serve once the icing is set.
