This recipe is adapted from a Chocolate and Coconut Slice recipe I discovered a while back on taste.com.au. Using home-brand ingredients, the total cost of the slice is $4.00, or $0.22 per piece based on 18 pieces. (Add an extra $1 for optional walnuts.) The best thing about this recipe is it’s tasty, cheap to make, most of the ingredients can already be found in your pantry/fridge and it’s simple enough for a toddler to help you make it.


3 Weet-Bix (blitzed in the food-proccessor or very finely crushed)

1 cup (85g) desiccated coconut

1/2 cup (120g) caster sugar

1 cup (150g) self-raising flour

2 tbs cocoa

150g butter

1 tsp vanilla extract or essence

Handful of lightly crushed walnuts (optional)

For the topping

1 1/2 cups icing sugar

2 tbsps cocoa

1-2 tbsps hot water

Dash of vanilla extract or essence


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Place coconut, sugar and processed Weet-Bix into a mixing bowl. Sift over flour and cocoa. Add walnuts if desired and mix together.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over a low heat, then pour over dry ingredients.
  4. Add vanilla and mix well.
  5. Scoop mixture into a lightly greased shallow pan.
  6. Press down very firmly all over until the slice is well compressed and flat.
  7. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.
  8. Remove slice from oven and let it cool on the bench.
  9. Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Add a dash of vanilla and stir in a little water until you reach a nice consistency.
  10. Spread icing on slice and sprinkle with coconut.
  11. Place slice in the fridge and let it cool thoroughly (even overnight) before cutting it into pieces. Allowing it to cool thoroughly will prevent crumbling.

Serve on a fancy plate and enjoy!
