I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

taken from *like grandma use to make* on April 16 2005

this is an absolute all time favourite for my family and is very easy to make ... anytime you need a quick slice this is the one !

Chocolate slice

1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup coconut
1 tblsp. cocoa
185g (6oz) butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 cup icing sugar
2 tblsp. cocoa
30g (1oz) butter
1 1/2 tblsp. hot water

method ~ sift dry ingredients into bowl, add melted butter and vanilla. mix well. press over base of greased slice tin ( 28cm X 18cm ~ 11" X 7") bake in moderate oven 20 mins. cool in tin ice with chocolate icing and cut into squares when icing has set

chocolate icing ~ sift icing sugar and cocoa into a small bowl. add melted butter and water. mix well until the icing is smooth and glossy

Ms*Robyn.. If it's okay with you... I'm going to try to make your chocolate slice. Sounds irresistable and just the thing for the kids when they get home from school. I don't have a slice tray but a tray slightly bigger.. so I might double the ingredients and freeze half before icing. Does this sound safe to you?
