Bird Food: White Christmas Slice

Yeah, I know, it's nowhere near Christmas, but it's always cake o'clock somewhere, right?!


I really need to work on my food photos!

This is a recipe I picked up in Sainsbury's ages ago but I'd never tried it. We had a charity bake sale at work so I decided to give it a go! It doesn't take long to make but there are plenty of opportunities to lick the spoon!

You'll need:
200g Belgian dark chocolate (I used Tesco Value plain chocolate)
400g coconut cookies (I used Fox's Coconut Crinkles)
150g unsalted butter (Tesco Value)
2 tablespoons runny honey (Tesco Value)
200g Belgian white chocolate (Tesco Value!)
50g desiccated coconut

(Despite being on a budget and using the cheapest ingredients, I got plenty of compliments on the taste!)

The recipe:

Line a 30cm x 20cm baking tray with clingfilm, so that it overhangs the sides.

Heat the dark chocolate, unsalted butter and runny honey in a pan. (I used a medium non-stick pan)
Mix with a spoon while the chocolate and butter melt, then add the crushed coconut cookies, and stir to coat.
Continue to stir for about 5 minutes so it begins to cook, then press the mixture into the lined tray. 
Place a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, so that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Add the white chocolate and gently melt. (I didn't bother with this, I just cleaned the original non-stick pan and melted the white chocolate on a very low heat)

Pour the melted white chocolate over the biscuit base, spreading it evenly. Cover with the desiccated coconut and chill for 4 hours.

Once set, lift out of the tin using the cling film and cut into small squares.
I just used a knife to cut it but it's pretty hard stuff. If there's an easier way, let me know!

And if you try out the recipe let me know too! Put a link below if you blog about it.
