Takes = 15 minutes prep. + 2 hours chilling
Makes = 16-24 pieces depending on cutting size

Ingredients

  • Crushed Digestive biscuits (or similar) –  250g packet (17 biscuits)
  • Desiccated coconut–  50g (1/2 cup) + extra for the top 2-3 tbsp
  • Condensed milk – 150g (1/2 cup)
  • Unsalted Butter – 80g
  • Cocoa powder – 2 tbsp
  • Vanilla extract  – 1 tsp
  • Quality Chocolate – 200g  (I used 50:50 70% dark + milk)
  • Coconut oil (or neutral oil) – 1 tbsp

Method

Step 1
PREPARE your 23cm (9 inch) square or rectangle baking tin. Grease and line with paper. I use two strips in my tin, placing one strip one way then the other the other way, with the edges over hanging to enable you to easily lift the slice out to cut.

Step 2
CRUSH the biscuits by hand or in a food processor until they are fine like breadcrumbs (I don't mind the odd slightly larger piece). I either put the biscuits in a large plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin, or recently I didn't have a large bag I used the end of the rolling pin to crush or my potato masher. Transfer to a large bowl and add in the cocoa powder and coconut and mix through.

Step 3
MELT the butter and gently heat the condensed milk in a small saucepan for about 3 to 5 minutes or in the microwave 3 x 30 second bursts.

Step 4
POUR the warm liquid over the biscuit mix and combine, then press into your prepare tin using the back of a spoon. Then chill in the fridge.

Step 5
MELT your coconut oil and chocolate in a glass bowl over a simmering saucepan filled with a little water. Gently melt and stir for a 3 to 5 minutes, be careful not to burn. Pour this over the chill the slice and ensure the entire top of the slice is covered, shake the tin to ensure the biscuit base is covered. Sprinkle with a little extra coconut if desired.

Step 6
CHILL again until set. I like to leave overnight to be sure, but it could be ready after 2 hours.

Step 7
CUT with a sharp knife into 16 squares or 20 skinny pieces.
