Fudgy Coconut Slice

While I was visiting Mum last week I had the luxury of 5 minutes to look through one of her new cook books. My Mum loves cooking as much as I do and regularly picks up a new cook book here and there and I luckily get a chance to skim through them when I visit.

This recipe for Fudgy Coconut Slice stood out to me for two reasons, it was easy and I had all the ingredients at home. Perfect!
The fudgy part of this slice is the top layer  which is simply melted chocolate and sour cream and the coconut part is the base which is a chocolate coconut biscuit base that is nice and crunchy.
I cut this into 20 slices but if you cut again you would get 40 bite sized pieces perfect for the school lunch box.
INGREDIENTS
1 Cup Plain Flour
1 Tbs Cocoa
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
1 Cup Dessicated Coconut
185 gm Light Olive Oil Spread/Butter/ Margarine, melted
1 Tsp Vanilla essence
125gm Chocolate, chopped 
2 Tbs Light Sour Cream
Sprinkles to decorate
LET’S PUT IT ALTOGETHER
1. Place the flour, cocoa, caster sugar and coconut into a medium bowl and mix to combine. Add the melted butter and vanilla essence and mix until it all comes together. Press into a greased and lined slice tray (28cm x 18cm) and bake in a 180 degree Celsius oven for 20 minutes or until firm and lightly browned.
Once cooked leave in the tray to cool.

2. Place a saucepan with water in it on the stove, then place a heat proof bowl on top of this with the chocolate and sour cream in it. Turn to a medium heat.

Stir the chocolate and sour cream until the chocolate melts and combines into a smooth chocolate sauce.

3. Pour the chocolate fudge sauce over the base. Top with your choice of sprinkles. Place in the fridge to set then cut into slices.
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.

Makes 20-40 slices

    What is caster sugar?

    • Amanda May 16, 2014 at 4:12 am #

      It is finer white sugar. You will find it with all the sugars in the supermarket.

    Do you have an alternate to sour cream. I’d love to make this today but don’t even have cream in the fridge!

    • Amanda June 18, 2014 at 6:07 pm #

      Hi Susan, you could just do melted chocolate and 50gm butter to make a ganache. It won’t be fudgy but is a great substitute.

    I’m always trying to find a treat that everyone in my family will love – Eureka! Sent it in everyone’s lunch box today and they all came home empty. Thank you for the delicious and quick recipe!

    it is ok not to use sour cream?

    • Amanda August 22, 2014 at 11:04 am #

      yes, it won’t have a fudgy consistency however. You can substitute with cream.

    Hi, would love to try this! Can I use Greek yoghurt in place of the sour cream..? 🙂

    • Amanda August 22, 2014 at 11:04 am #

      I haven’t tried with Greek Yoghurt. I would suggest cream as a better substitute.

    Can you freeze these?

    I love quick and easy treat recipes. I am off to give this one a go right now!!!

    • Jane Ritchie October 7, 2014 at 8:10 pm #

      I made these, I used yoghurt instead of the sour cream in the topping, and it worked just fine. I also used sugar substitute, and they were delicious!!!
