Recipe by I'mPat
Taken from Super Food Ideas and thought would be good (but not suitable for a family of diabetics) but did think to make it for DS's recreation group but would much rather give them a recipe that it not my own to give that recipe a review. Hopefully someone will think likewise and give this one a try.

This recipe looked so good, but I was a bit disappointed. I thought the sultanas were a bit strong and perhaps the slice could have benefitted from more chocolate on the inside and on top? I followed other reviewers and baked at about 160C but did so for about 50 minutes, and I still felt when I tasted it (after cooling) that the peanuts could have used more baking time for more of a roasted taste. None of my family members loved it, though we working our way through it. A new Zealand friend loved it and wants the recipe, though, so perhaps my family are choco-holics.
I too used a whole can of evaporated milk.
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1 cup unsalted raw peanuts
- 1 cup sultanas or 1 cup dried currant
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1⁄4 cup dark chocolate chips
- 3⁄4 cup dark chocolate chips
