Easy Chocolate Slice Recipe

Fat Mum Slim /

Sometimes when I’m photographing food I’ve made, I find myself laughing. Laughing because if my neighbours were watching, they’d think I was pretty insane. I’m moving around the food, going high and then going low, like it’s an actual fashion photoshoot.

And sometimes I get over-excited because something is so delicious, and it looks so good that I want to take a million photos. Exhibit A below. ALL THE PHOTOS OF THE CHOCOLATE SLICE. 

This is such an easy slice to make, and it’s delicious to eat. It’s a good one to make for school things, or sporting fundraisers… because you can easily throw together a few batches, and it doesn’t use complicated or expensive ingredients. Oh, and it’s delicious. Have I mentioned that yet?    

Easy Chocolate Slice Recipe


150g butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup self-raising Flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup desiccated coconut

2 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
30g butter, chopped
2 tablespoons boiling water


1. Preheat oven to 160ºC fan-forced, and line a slice tray with baking paper. Mine is 27cm by 17cm.
2. In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the ingredients {not including the icing ingredients, of course} and stir to combine. Press into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes, until slightly firm.
3. Allow to cool, and then make icing. To make icing, combine the butter and bowling water in a small mug, and stir until the butter is melted. In a small bowl place the icing sugar and cocoa, and mix to combine. Add in the water/butter mix, and the vanilla extract. Stir to bring together, and continue until the mix is smooth. Spread onto slice base. To decorate you can sprinkle with extra coconut, or even colourful sprinkles.
