This recipe for mocha slices is for those of us who love coffee and chocolate and can’t quite decide which to have! I always find it a welcome addition to lunch boxes as it’s best described as half cake half biscuit.
My family are force fed cake on such a regular basis and lets face it I don’t see a problem with that at all but apparently they are so over cake!! but they do love these mocha slices every time I make them.
The recipe was given to me by a friend who made them quite a few years ago for a Macmillan coffee morning, they are perfect for charity coffee mornings, school bake sales or to give as a gift.
- 225g Stork margarine
- 225g Granulated sugar
- 225g Self raising flour
- 150g Oats
- 50g Cocoa powder
- 50g chocolate chips (optional but why wouldn’t you)
- 50g Stork margarine
- 1 dessert spoon of coffee granules dissolved in a little boiling water
- 225g Icing sugar
- Preheat the oven to 180c
- Melt the margarine in a saucepan
- Stir in the sugar, flour, oats and cocoa powder
- Press into a non stick rectangular tin
- Cook for 17-20 minutes, even though it will appear soft don’t be tempted to cook for longer as it will go too hard once cooled
- To make the topping, melt the margarine in a saucepan
- Add the dissolved coffee and mix well
- Take the pan off the heat and beat in the icing sugar until all the lumps have disappeared
- Spread over the base, once set cut into squares
I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as mine does. If you would like to find out how to join in or host a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support click here https://coffee.macmillan.org.uk/
