The base went together ok, however the icing was terrible I suggest using a different icing recipe

This was simply delicious! Not only was the finished product delicious, but even the plain dough was delicious! Only problem I had was that it didn't make a lot, but it was still fantastic! I recommend this recipe. Thanks for sharing Jen :)

This slice was DELICIOUS!!! It was so quick and easy to make and we ate it as quick as I cooked it. I even had to make it a second time the next day.I hadn't heard to chocolate rough before but in Australia we have coconut rough and it is a favourite of mine. This one is definately a keeper. Thanks for a great recipe Jen. :)
