A Slice of Paradise

A slice of Paradise 
Treasured family recipes are always the best and the recipe for Paradise Slices from Jenny in Chesterfield is no exception. She writes to say that my talk at her Social History group about Grandma Abson inspired her to look out an old exercise book of her mum’s and bake a few recipes. She says that she used to bake Paradise Slices with her 3 children when they were little as they were so easy.
Paradise Slices 
4oz/110g chocolate
4oz/110g coconut
2oz/50g raisins
2oz/50g sugar
1oz/25g chopped dates
1 egg
Pre heat the oven to 180C/350F/Mark 4. Grease and line a 7inch/18cms square tin. Melt the chocolate and pour into the tin. Mix all the other ingredients together and spread over the chocolate. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Meryl says: This recipe is a great one to bake with children as Jenny suggests. Who will be licking the bowl out for the last of the chocolate?
