Chocolate Rough Slice Recipe

Let me start by getting *all* of my enthusiasm for this chocolate rough slice out on the get-go. THIS. SLICE. IS. THE. BUSINESS.

Coconut and chocolate just work so well together, and this slice with the crunchy base and the sweet chocolate, coconut topping is just magic. And it’s so simple you could almost throw the recipe at the kids {especially any teens} and kindly demand they make it, and it could be done.

I should have let this set for a little longer before cutting it, but as I have mentioned I was enthusiastic {i.e. nursing a fierce sweet tooth craving} so there was no waiting. I let it set for about 45 minutes, but you could do it overnight, if you can.

Chocolate Rough Slice Recipe



1 cup self-raising flour
2 teaspoons of cocoa
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
125g butter, melted

1/2 cup condensed milk
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
35g butter, melted


1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line a lamington tin {18 x 26cm}.
2. Make the base by combining all the base ingredients into a medium sized bowl. Mix well, and then press into the prepared tin. Bake for 25 minutes.
3. While the base is cooking, place the topping ingredients into a medium saucepan, and stir over a low heat until well combined. Once the base is cooked and while it is still warm, pour the topping over the base and spread using a knife. Refrigerate to set and then cut into slices.

NOTE: You could sprinkle some coconut on top before the topping sets for a little more coconut-y flavour!
