Make this Easy Chocolate Coconut Slice in no time at all – simply melt & mix! Conventional and Thermomix instructions included.
A few weeks ago, one of of my best friends had her second baby. Before I went to visit for lots of bubba cuddles, I asked if there was anything she wanted me to bring over… her answer – chocolate! You can see why we’re friends! Anyway, I thought I’d go one better and make one of my favourite chocolate slices. If you’ve never made this Easy Chocolate Coconut Slice before, then you are really, really missing out!!
This was actually one of the very first recipes I ever put on the blog, but after two years, I thought it was time it had an update, or a foodie makeover… because every good recipe needs a makeover now and then. The thing I love the most about this slice is that you probably have all of the ingredients in your cupboard and fridge – which means no extra trips to the supermarket (am I the only person who seems to live in the supermarket?).
