Chocolate Coconut Slice

Today I was feeling lethargic and whenever that happens, look out! Either I go into a music frenzy, playing all of my old favourites (Def Leppard and early Madonna full force baby!) or I become a stir crazy baker. Or I do both at the same time. Which is exactly what I did today.  In our family we do everything to music. It just makes doing anything way more fun!

I decided to bake my mom’s classic recipe, Chocolate Coconut Slice.
So put your music on, get your groove on and get baking!
