Coconut Slice

A decadent chocolate and coconut slice that is deliciously creamy.

Prep time: 1 hour

Baking time: 20 minutes



Utensils

  • Mixing bowl

  • Spatula

  • 8x8 inch tin

  • Greaseproof paper

  • Small pot

  • Glass bowl

  • Wooden spoon

  • Food thermometer

 

Ingredients


Biscuit base

  • 100g of Butter (or dairy free butter)

  • 50g of Caster sugar

  • 150g of Self-raising flour

  • 20g of Cocoa powder


Coconut filling

  • 1 tin of Condensed milk (vegan condensed milk can be found online)

  • 170g of Desiccated coconut

  • 50g of Icing sugar


Chocolate topping

  • 150g of Chocolate (dark chocolate if making this vegan)

 

Method


Biscuit base








Preheat the oven to 160 degrees fan. Weigh out your butter, flour and cocoa powder and crumb together.











Add the sugar and and mix until it forms a dough.












Place the dough into your lined baking tin.












Press the dough evenly into the tin.












Bake for 20 minutes until it looks like this and a knife comes out clean. Leave to cool.






 

Coconut filling








Add all ingredients together and mix.












Mix until combined.











Today I am using vegan condensed milk which can be found online, it is a more caramel colour than regular condensed milk but tastes very similar.











Spread the coconut mixture on top of the biscuit and place in the fridge.







 

Chocolate topping








Place your chocolate in a bain marie and melt until it reaches 50-55 degrees for dark chocolate or 45-50 degrees for milk chocolate.










Make sure there is a gap between your bowl and your pot so that the steam has a place to escape, I do this by placing a fork underneath the bowl










Once your chocolate is melted bring down to 30-31 degrees for dark chocolate or 29-30 degrees for milk chocolate. In this hot weather this can take a long time so I will admit I cooled my chocolate in front of a fan.










Pour the chocolate into the baking tin and spread evenly.












Place in the fridge until the chocolate has firmed.












Cut into your desired size and enjoy!
