Chocolate coconut slice

As promised, here is the recipe for a very quick slice. This recipe is also egg free but I promise that it doesn't affect the outcome.

Chocolate coconut slice

3 cups self raising flour
2 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
2 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
500g block of butter
2 tsps of vanilla extract
* you can chose to ice the slice or just dust with icing sugar when cool! I truly prefer to ice mine and then sprinkle with coconut

Chocolate  icing

4 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup to 2/3 cup cocoa
120g butter
5 tbsp hot water

Pre heat oven 180  degrees

Melt butter and allow to cool slightly
Mix all dry ingredients together
Add butter and Vanilla to dry ingredients
Mix well
Press into slice tin
Bake for 15 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean
Allow to cool completely before icing
Mix all icing ingredients together and blend until smooth
Sprinkle with coconut

Really all I can say is yum!
