    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Base

    Filling

    • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar, sifted
    • 30 g Copha, melted (white vegetable shortening)
    • 2 tablespoons milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

    Chocolate topping

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Lihtly grease a shallow tin 18 x 28cm (7 x 11 inches) and line with baking paper, leaving the paper hanging over two sides (to make it easier to remove later).
    2. 2
      Sift the flour and the cocoa into a bowl. Stir in the coconut and sugar, then add the butter and egg and mix well.
    3. 3
      Press the mix firmly into the tin, bake for 15 minutes, then press down with the back of a spoon and leave to cool.
    4. 4
      For the peppermint filling, sift the icing sugar into a bowl. Stir in the copha, milk and essence. Spread over base and refrigerate for 5-10 minutes until firm.
    5. 5
      For the chocolate topping, put the chocolate and copha in a heatproof bowl. Melt over simmering water (making sure water does not touch the bowl). Spread mixture evenly over the filling, refrigerate for 20 minutes or until firm.
    6. 6
      Carefully lift the slice from the tin, using paper as handles. Cut into pieces with a warm knife to give clean edges. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

      I love this recipe (have the book but needed to find the recipe online). I adore the choc-mint mix but my boyfriend doesn't, so an alternative is to use orange essence and a little red + yellow food colouring in the filling to make a choc-orange slice. The colour just makes it better somehow.

      Yummy! I used Crisco shortening as I've no idea what Copha is and they came out great. A definite keeper. Made for the Aussie RS#36.
