Instructions

  • Preheat you oven to 180°C (fan-forced) and line an 18 x 28cm slice tin with baking paper, making sure to leave plenty hanging over the sides.

  • Add the melted butter and stir to combine.

  • To make the icing, combine the icing sugar and cocoa, add hot water a tablespoon at a time until your icing is thick but still can be spread using a butter knife.

Notes

  • This recipe is however freezer friendly so you can pop some away to enjoy later (or hide it from the kids!) if you wish.
  • I recommend using desiccated coconut for the slice as it will combine with the other ingredients better.
  • You will need to let the icing set before slicing into pieces, you can pop it into the fridge to help it set.
  • Store this slice in an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 7 days.
  • I usually decorate this slice with some extra coconut, however you can also use 100s and 1000s or leave it plain if you prefer.
