      A very easy sweet slice/bar/square to serve with tea or coffee as a treat or as an after dinner dessert. These were made by the Chef 'Sackville' whilst she was staying with us for a couple of days with her husband on the New Zealand leg of their around the world trip by bicycle. We all loved them and I know I will always think of Canada when I make them :) A 'keeper' for me.

      These are wonderful. I love the flavors with the custard and chocolate and coconut. Not too sweet and very delicious. They were a big hit with everyone I shared them with.
