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!!

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?).
