This another one of those 70s Copha slices. I think they were popular because they didn’t need baking, made a large quantity and were quick and easy to make. All pretty good reasons when you think about it.

The heading on this New Idea segment says ‘the perfect breakfast treat”, but I’m pretty sure my granddaughters would like them in their lunchbox and I wouldn’t mind them for afternoon tea.

This is one of those old recipes that our mothers made from what they had in the cupboard. Nothing fancy, just cocoa, butter, weetbix, coconut, flour and brown sugar. A cheap easy slice that the kids loved. 4 ozs = 125g
