Chocolate Slice–Quick and Easy
We have a function coming up at quilting group on Saturday and I am making an old favourite of mine “Chocolate Slice” to share at morning tea.
This recipe was given to me by a neighbour some 25 years ago and my family and I still enjoy it. It is so quick and easy and no-fail and you can use up any cereal you have in the cupboard. Today I didn’t have a whole cup of cornflakes so I added some crushed weet- bix and some puffed millet.
Give a try – it won’t disappoint.
Quick and Easy Chocolate Slice
1 cup cornflakes (or you could use weet-bix slightly crushed or rice bubbles)
1 cup dessicated coconut
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup self raising flour
1/4 teasp salt
1 tablespoon baking cocoa
Place above ingredients into a bowl. Add 5 oz melted butter and 1/2 teasp vanilla. Press into a lamington tin. Cook in slow oven (165 deg) for approx 25 minutes.
Ice while warm with 3/4 cup icing sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoon baking cocoa. Add 1 teasp butter melted and 2 tablespoons boiling water and a few drops of vanilla.
Sprinkle with coconut or crushed nuts or whatever you fancy. (I used coconut flakes today)
That’s it !!!
