Chocolate Coconut Slice

Today I was feeling lethargic and whenever that happens, look out! Either I go into a music frenzy, playing all of my old favourites (Def Leppard and early Madonna full force baby!) or I become a stir crazy baker. Or I do both at the same time. Which is exactly what I did today.  In our family we do everything to music. It just makes doing anything way more fun!

I decided to bake my mom’s classic recipe, Chocolate Coconut Slice.
So put your music on, get your groove on and get baking!

  • 3 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tbsp flour

  • 1tsp vanilla
ICING:
  • 11/4c. Icing sugar
  • 1/3c. Cocoa
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 5 tsp. hot water or hot coffee
DIRECTIONS:
BOTTOM:
Measure first 4 ingredients into a bowl. Crumble together.
Press into a 9×13 ungreased pan.

Cool then frost.

Note: I keep this cake covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
