Easy Chocolate Slice Recipe

While it’s fun to come up with fun new recipes, sometimes all you want (and need!) is a classic slice recipe like this easy Chocolate Slice.  This slice recipe reminds me of the trays of goodies we used to buy at cake stalls when I was young.  It is an incredibly easy recipe to put together and is perfect if you have a little kitchen helper of two!

  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 ½ cups coconut
  • 250g butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • For the Chocolate Icing
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 6-8 tablespoons hot water


  1. To begin, preheat the oven to 180°C and line a slice tin with baking paper, making sure to leave plenty hanging over the sides as this will help you remove the slice from the tin when it has baked.

  3. Place the butter in a medium saucepan with sugar and heat until melted. Pour over dry ingredients and then mix until combined.

  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly

  7. Spread icing over the warm slice and sprinkle the coconut over the top before placing in the fridge to cool Once cool, cut into small squares.

I decided to decorate this chocolate slice with coconut, but you could also use 100s and 1000s or even chocolate chips if you want to make it extra special.
