I've made that slice so many times and especially when my children were young and I still make it. It's easy and people seem to really enjoy it.
So here is that recipe:-
Chocolate Coconut Slice a.k.a. Coconut Delights
Ingredients:- 1 cup Self Raising flour
1 cup of crushed Vita Brits, weetbix or cornflakes (or any cereal really)1 cup of coconut
1/2 cup of sugar
5 oz of shortening (5 tablespoons)
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1 dessertspoon of golden syrup
Method:- Sift flour and cocoa into bowl. Add cereal, coconut and sugar and mix well.
Melt butter and syrup; add to dry ingredients, mix well.
Press into greased swiss roll tin.
Bake in a moderate oven for 12-15 minutes. Stand tin on cooler and cut into squares.
When almost cold, ice with warm chocolate icing and sprinkle with coconut.
Today I had plans to go to the Farmers' Markets in the next suburb. Unfortunately I slept in a bit and then we got a phone call from DH's older brother's step-daughter telling us that her stepfather was very ill and had been taken to hospital. The paramedic had told her and her mother that the ambulance would be in a queue for at least an hour at the hospital before my BIL would enter Emergency. DH has spent most of today waiting for the updates from his SIL. The latest news is that it is not known what is specifically wrong, however he is unable to walk and it is reported that they are unable to listen to his heart because of the 'noise coming from his lungs'...(sorry, remember I'm getting this third-hand!) Tomorrow is another day and being Monday, the public hospital, will again have staff involved in testing etc back working.
This afternoon I went to a tupperware party at my stepDD2's place; lots of young friends and siblings far outnumbered the 'oldies', i.e. myself and StepDD's mother. When it was my turn to pick a prize out of the box, I picked the little tongs...a sign that I've been to too many tupperware parties is that I already have all those little goodies in the prizes box!!! lol
