Chocolate Peppermint Slice

Chocolate Peppermint Slice

250g butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups self-raising flour
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 cup desicated coconut

Icing:
2 cups icing mixture
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 Tbsp peppermint essence
2 Tbsp hot water
2 Tbsp shredded coconut

1. Grease a 20 x 30cm tin. Place butter and sugar in a saucepan over a low heat until butter is melted.

2. Sift flour and cocoa in a large bowl, stir in coconut. Add melted butter mixture and mix well. Press mixture firmly over base of prepared tin. Bake in 180C pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Leave to cool slightly in in the tin while you make the icing.

3. Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a large bowl, stir in peppermint essence and enough of the hot water to make a smooth, thick icing. Spread icing over warm slice and sprinkle with shredded coconut. Allow to cool and set before cutting into pieces.
