I love to cook, and I always try to make the time at the start of the week to prepare a home-made biscuit, cake or healthy treat to include in the boys lunch boxes. But, this week I really didn’t want ‘step 1′ of the recipe to be ‘cream the butter and sugar’. I was after a more melt and mix approach.
The Women’s Weekly “Chocolate Fudge Bars” was the perfect recipe. I’ve made these many, many times over the years and they are always a hit. Here’s the recipe:
Chocolate Fudge Bars
from AWW The Big Book of Beautiful Biscuits or online
½ cup sugar
1 cup coconut
1 tablespoon cocoa
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1½ tablespoons hot water
Press mixture over base of greased 28cm x 18cm lamington tin.
Bake in moderate oven 20 minutes. Cool in tin.
When cold, ice with Chocolate Icing, sprinkle with coconut. Cut into bars when icing has set.
Sift icing sugar and cocoa into small bowl, add melted butter and water, mix until the icing is smooth and glossy.
