IMG_2632

I made this to take along to my Nana’s party along with the lemon meringue cupcakes. It is nice and quick to make and super easy!

Ingredients:
Base
1 cup of self raising flour
125 grams of melted butter
¾ cup of desiccated coconut
½ cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa

Topping
½ cup icing sugar
40 grams butter
1 tablespoon of cocoa
1-2 tablespoon/s hot water
Coconut to decorate

Method:
Line a slice tin (mine is 24x18cm from Briscoes) with baking paper.  Preheat the oven to 180°C. 
In a bowl mix flour, coconut, sugar and cocoa and combine with the melted butter to make the base, then press firmly into the lined slice tin. 
Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven to cool. 
Mix together the butter, cocoa, icing sugar and water to make the topping mixture. Once combined and spread over the base and add a dusting of coconut to decorate.
Refrigerate until set and cut into squares.
