Chocolate Slice. Just like grandma used to make.

Fat Mum Slim /


This is one of those slices that you had as a kid. In fact you might have bought it from one of those Cake & Slice stalls at your school. Perhaps your grandma used to make it, and she wrote in on a small scrap of paper {no doubt with some sort of floral print on it}, and gave it to your mother and now here you are… making it yourself.

It’s the kind of chocolate slice that doesn’t require too much brainpower or ingredients, so you can throw it together and use up one of those stray packs of 100s and 1000s that you have laying around {or like me, three}. It’s yummy, so you’ll want to move it quickly from your sight, because there is the real chance that you’re going to want to eat it all and in one sitting.

And that, my friends, is pretty dangerous.

Easy Chocolate Slice


125g butter
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
2 tablespoons of cocoa
1 egg
100s and 1000s to sprinkle over


♥ Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray {I used 20cm by 20cm} with baking paper.
♥ In a medium bowl combine all the dry ingredients.
♥ Melt the butter in a saucepan or in the microwave until completely melted.
♥ Add the butter and egg to the dry mix, and stir to combine.
♥ Press the mixture into your prepared baking tray, and smooth over with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with 100s and 1000s.
♥ Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Allow the slice to cool for 15 minutes and then turn on to wire rack and cool completely. Slice into portions and enjoy.
