Easy Lunchbox Treat

Posted by MANDI at 9:41 PM
This is seriously the easiest slice you could ever come across. The kids tasted it at the neighbours, demanded a copy of the recipe, delivered said recipe to me and then demanded I make it. Right then! This is a chocolate-y, sweet treat that's perfect for the lunchbox or for after school. It freezes beautifully too.

School's back tomorrow and when I got home from work today I realised there was next to nothing in the cupboard and that I probably needed to whip something up. What to make?  Aunty Lynette's Chocolate Slice to the rescue.

Lynette's Chocolate Slice




Makes 24 pieces

1 cup self raising flour
1 cup coconut
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg, beaten
125g butter, melted

Chocolate Icing
2 cups icing sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 tablespoon butter
splash of milk (1 - 2 tablespoons roughly)

Preheat oven to 180C. Line lamington tin with baking paper.
Mix dry ingredients together. Add egg and butter. Mix well.
Spread into lined tin, pat smooth and cook at 180C for 20 minutes
Leave to cool completely in tin. When cool, ice with chocolate icing and sprinkle with coconut.
Cut into squares

Icing
Put icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Add butter and mix together. Add milk, a little at a time, until icing is smooth and spreadable.

I love the look of this recipe, especially when everything is already in the pantry. Just a question - does the icing need to have cocoa in it to make it chocolate icing?
