Chewy Chocolate Slice

Yes I know, its Wednesday not Sunday but I've been busy. Well that's not entirely true, I've been busy and lazy. Sure I've had stuff to do, but mostly that stuff has been going out for lunch and dinner, watching movies and just basically wandering around town. I have done some baking during the week including this chocolate slice. I made it to take to Cafe Church on Sunday night but well never got back home before church to pick it up, so I've been eating it myself. Tastes great warmed up and served with ice cream, just don't put it in the microwave too long or it will burn and catch fire! Charcoal does not make for a nice dessert.  This slice is kind of like a brownie, but with coconut to give it some chewiness. Really easy to make and really easy to eat!

Some more great recipes this week. I don't think in a lifetime I'll ever get to make all the great recipes I bookmark!

  1. This is a golden oldie. My Mum used to make this regularly when I was kid over 25 years ago. She has it memorised and can make it in a flash.
