Coconut Cherry Slice

I love this slice! My mum used to make it all the time when I was little, if she had to take a plate it would be Coconut Cherry Slice.

I love the dark chocolate it gives the slice a decadent richness. Other times I have made this I have drizzled dark chocolate on top which also looks great. I have cut this in normal slice sizes and also in bite size squares.

If you want more chocolaty goodness you can use more chocolate for a thicker base, which can be harder to cut through but is still can work well.  I sometimes don’t actually measure the glace’ cherries I just add until l think I should stop, I love glace’cherries.

This Is a great easy slice that many will love and a fantastic treat with coffee.
