The resulting slice is very moreish. It is a sort of kids slice (for the days when kids didn't have a whole range of dietary requirements) but my 9 year old turned up her nose. She is mysteriously fussy some days. It is a bit denser than a cake and rather sweet with the condensed milk crust. And really really good when it is still warm.
I am sending this slice to We Should Cocoa and Baking Crumbs (hosted by Jo's Kitchen Larder this month).

Adapted from MumLyfe
1 cup self-raising flour*
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup dark or milk choc bits
1 tsp golden syrup
125 g butter or margarine
400 g tin of condensed milk
Chocolate melts, to decorate (optional)
Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease and line a 28 x 18cm slice tin.
Melt butter and golden syrup (easiest in the microwave 30 -60 seconds). Set aside. Mix self raising flour (*or 1 cup plain white flour and 2 tsp baking powder), coconut, and choc chips. Gradually add the slightly cooled melted butter mixture so it doesn't melt all the choc chips. Press down firmly. Pour condensed milk over it.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Dot with chocolate melts if desired. Cool in tin and then cut into squares. Store in an airtight container but don't expect them to last long!
NOTES: I think this could be made vegan easily with vegan margarine (which I used). coconut condensed milk, and vegan choc chips.
