I love easy slice recipes. I am certain you can never have too many at your fingertips that are quick and use every day ingredients! The combination of chocolate and coconut is always a winner!
School camps are such a magical time in our kids lives, they get to head off with their friends in the trusted arms of their teachers and the cool parents that get to go, plus the food, my son always tells me, is so good. I love to hear that he ate the best dinner of his life there, something he would never in a million years touch if I made it! 😉 And the best part of course is supper, where all the different containers come out so kids get to sample lots of different home baking and choose their favourite. We are blessed that where we live has stunning camp locations around our lakes and the kids have a blast, I just try and keep busy so that I don’t miss him too much!
So as my son was heading away on camp and the cupboard was a little bare (and I may have forgotten baking was on the “things to bring” list!) so I decided to come up with a recipe that works with what we had! This is a hybrid version of a few recipes and it worked really well. I have a recipe that feels similar with my Grandma’s Chocolate Squares which is just delicious with sultanas added too, but this recipe is even more simple than that!
It follows the basic idea of mixing the dry ingredients then adding the wet, combining and baking, it would be a perfect recipe for the kids to bake on their own to try or for you to whip up when you need a recipe in a hurry!
I used brown sugar in this one and it is just lovely, adding a nice depth to the flavours and also a grand idea when you are completely out of white sugar like I was!
So please enjoy making this recipe, it is quick and sure to become a favourite in your home! I doubled this recipe for the camp, simply using our large roasting dish for the tin, preparing it the same way as the recipe states below.
So as you can see it is really very simple, you can use your own favourite chocolate icing for this recipe, this is my go to simple chocolate icing that is delicious every time.
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out this recipe, you can follow me on Facebook to see more of the recipes I adore, and also subscribe above left with your email address to receive all my recipes as I publish them!

Any idea what the UK equivalent of brown sugar is please ?
Looks like you can purchase light brown sugar in the Uk, Tescos has it. Otherwise google alternatives of none in your area.
Can the flour be substituted with almond or other kinds of flour?
Hi, I haven’t tried this recipe with other sorts of flour sorry, if you do try please let me know how you get on

Who knew this was good without eggs? I did. I knew. I knew this was good without eggs because I FORGET TO PUT THE BLOODY EGGS IN!! And, do you know what Anna, it still tastes lovely! Of course my nonsense didn’t stop there – because I am SO impatient I then decided to get one of the two I made out of the tin too soon and nearly broke the whole slice apart … there followed some quick pushing and shoving to make it resemble a square, chucked the icing over it (that’s the only thing I might have to tweak, way too sweet for me but not for my menfolk, I daresay!) and threw it (not literally) in the fridge to ‘set’. Two slices made – one for Uni son heading back tomorrow (doubt that’ll survive the car journey with his mates) and the other one for stepson to take when he goes to ‘camp’ with his Day Centre. Happy days! Now’s where the wine …??!!
Ha ha love it!!! Glad I’m not the only one who has moments like this in the kitchen ?
They are all a must try.
Thank you ?
