Easy Chocolate Coconut Slice (most popular)

Make this Easy Chocolate Coconut Slice in no time at all – simply melt & mix! Conventional and Thermomix instructions included.

A few weeks ago, one of of my best friends had her second baby. Before I went to visit for lots of bubba cuddles, I asked if there was anything she wanted me to bring over… her answer – chocolate! You can see why we’re friends! Anyway, I thought I’d go one better and make one of my favourite chocolate slices. If you’ve never made this Easy Chocolate Coconut Slice before, then you are really, really missing out!!

Easy Chocolate Coconut Slice

This was actually one of the very first recipes I ever put on the blog, but after two years, I thought it was time it had an update, or a foodie makeover… because every good recipe needs a makeover now and then. The thing I love the most about this slice is that you probably have all of the ingredients in your cupboard and fridge – which means no extra trips to the supermarket (am I the only person who seems to live in the supermarket?).

It’s also the simplest thing ever. You literally just ‘melt and mix’ the ingredients in the base, pop it into the oven, and then spread the icing over the slice. I like to spread my icing on while the slice is still warm, in fact when it’s just out of the oven, because the heat of the base makes it so easy to spread. As you can see by the pictures, this recipe makes quite a lot of icing, so leave a bit off if you’d rather a thinner layer (but come on… it’s icing and who on earth can say no to thick icing?).

    #TeamMM

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Haha yes thick icing is definitely the best!

  7. My mum used to make this slice (with slight variations) when I was going up. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Another one to add to the long list of Bake Play Smile recipes to make!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Yes definitely! I know – I can’t remember the number of times we made this!

  8. Shari says:

  9. Oh, my favourite flavours! Your slice looks sensational.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Thanks lovely xx

  10. Amrita says:

    Yummo! I love the look of this – and I think I may actually be able to make a vegan version if I sub the butter and eggs… 😀

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh that’s a great idea!

  11. Mel says:

    Hi, just made these this morning – not sure if they have turned out right though as my kids have pinched my measuring cups, so I had to go online to do weight conversions! Is it supposed to have a brownie like texture? Also, what is 2tlb of water? I assumed it to be 2 tablespoons, but this wasn’t enough so added a good bit more and even then my icing was very thick and not very spreadable! Thanks!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hehehe oh thats very funny! Lol yes it’s meant to be 2tbs – thanks for picking up my typo! I’ll go and change it now. The icing can depend on the brand of icing sugar/icing mixture you use and so yes, sometimes you do need to add a bit more. 🙂

      1. Mel says:

        Great! I’m in the UK, so def using different brands they tasted delicious though!

        1. Bake Play Smile says:

          Fantastic to hear Mel!

  12. Mmmm, these do look easy and very, very yummy. Thank you. #MummyMondays

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh definitely – couldn’t be easier!

  13. I love a classic chocolate and coconut slice! This definitely reminds me of my childhood.. I must make this recipe soon!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh me too! It’s just the best!!

  14. I do just happen to have all those ingredients in the fridge/cupboard! Going to have to whip up a batch asap 😉

  15. this slice makes me feel quite nostalgic because my mum made it regularly when I was a kid – lovely to see it here looking so beautiful

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh mine too!

  16. Gretta says:

    Yum!! I make a similar slice and it’s always a winner 🙂 I feel some baking maybe in the cards today YUM! I’ve pinned this for later #fabulousfoodiefriday X

  17. Anything with a chocolate coconut combo is a winner in my book, yum!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Absolutely 🙂

  18. This brings back memories of what my mum used to make when I was a kid. So yummy for afternoon tea!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Yes exactly Eva!

  19. Dawn says:

    These coconut slices look delicious. Could you please tell me what SR Flour is? Thanks!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Dawn, SR flour is self raising flour 🙂

  20. Honi says:

    Yet another amazing recipe from your blog! Thank you so much once again for sharing, I am currently preparing for my second little baby’s arrival, hence nesting and baking up a storm! You’re recipes are honestly some of the best and easiest to make. Thank you!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Honi, oh thank you so much! You are just so sweet. You sound so organised! Congrats on your pregnancy!! xx

  21. Jennifer Wang says:

    ~ Uh oh… My base turned out REALLY hard and crunchy like a biscuit! Eep! Hmmm… I guess I have two choices: 1) Make another batch and cook at a lower temp (maybe 150C for 15-20min); 2) Leave my current batch as is and label it “crunchy coconut slice). Haha, oh dear… 😉

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hmm that’s so strange!!! I would say that lowering your oven will definitely help! Hehehe or you could just go with crunchy!

    2. Lucinda says:

      Was also too long for me. Oven on 170 for 25 minutes and just caught it before it was black. Lovely taste though. I added peppermint essence instead of vanilla as had run out.

  22. Erine Harrison says:

    Hi, can this be frozen – I’m looking for tray bakes that I can make ahead and freeze for a church event next month and this looks great

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Yep definitely!

  23. Ritienne says:

      🙂

  24. Theresa says:

    An old post but my ten year old made this today, all I had to do was melt the butter in the microwave. Making her own lunchbox treat- definitely a winner.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Fantastic!!!! I LOVE hearing about kids in the kitchen! Your daughter sounds like quite the mini MasterChef!

  25. Jody says:

    OMG seriously the best Choc Slice I have ever made!! And Easy!! Kids are totally in love with it – and have asked for it to made again for a birthday party on the weekend!!! Too good!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      So happy to hear that! Thank you!

    2. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh wow! Thank you so much!!! I’m thrilled that you liked it!!

  26. Alison says:

    Just letting you know Lucy that my slice turned out Amazing! The texture was kind of like a fudge-y cake, moist, but not wet, and definitely not crumbly… And the taste was better than I expected – almost like chocolate-caramel, Yum! We started with a hot knife (for cutting) but that caused the icing to melt and stick to the knife, so for us it was a much cleaner cut with a cold knife. Very hard to just have one, or two or…. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  27. Suzi says:

    Hi Lucy, this looks amazing, I am going to try this tomororrow! I was wondering your opinion of adding cherries to this? Do you think I could puree them or add whole? And if so, would I need to add sweetener to the cherries first as I still want it to be super chocolately rather than tart. So many questions – sorry! Might just stick to the original 😉 Thank you!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Yes definitely!!!! I would add them whole or perhaps cut them in half – they should be sweet enough! 🙂

  28. Bronwyn says:

    Definitely will be making this one

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Enjoy!!! I think you’ll love it!

  29. Paula says:

  32. Dolly Cheevers says:

    HI
    I just googled slices to make ahead and freeze and came across your site of 15 freezable slices.
    I am wanting to make this chocolate slice and freeze but would I ice it and then freeze or freeze then ice after defrosting?

    Thank you and love your site and gourgeous photos.

    Dolly

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yes you can absolutely ice it before freezing! Thank you so much for your lovely comment xx

  33. jen says:

    HI Lucy

        Thanks for the tip & awesome recipe.

  35. Muhriza says:

    Hi, I’ve all the ingredients on hand for this and it looks like a great recipe! But the biggest pan I’ve got is a 9×13 inches. So can I divide the recipe in half and make it?!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      That will be fine!! It will just be thicker and may need to bake slightly longer. 🙂 xx

  36. Kiara says:

    Oh my goodness. I had a recipe very similar to this that I used to make a lot. When I got married and moved I lost it and was quite devastated. I am so glad I found your site!!!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Oh yay!!! Enjoy! xx

  37. MMMMMM these sound delicious!!!! my great grandmother once told me that the future would hold your recipe of a beautiful coconut slice. i thought she was a bit funny in the head but turns out she was right. i can travel to outer space and it is the most wonderful place on earth1!! i think i might try making this in space while looking at the stars.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hahaha oh thats so lovely!! She wounds very wise!

  38. Sonya says:

      Absolutely!!

  40. Kirsten says:

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!! So glad you liked it Kirsten!! xx

  41. Belinda says:

    Mine turned out a little more like a cake than a slice? Might have not put enough brown sugar in maybe? Still very yummy though!

  42. El says:

    WOW! This is just so easy and so delicious – it is now our ‘go to’ for school bake sales. Thanks!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Thank you so much!

  43. Rebecca says:

    I followed the thermomix recipe but unfortunately the amount of mixture was too little to go in the recommended tin size and the texture of the base was quite hard and dry. I, too, had to add quite a lot of water to the icing….maybe the weights in grams should be revised? Def. will try again though as yours look so nice…..
