here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

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

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?
