Chocolate Coconut Squares


I have some cooking and baking that were done more than a year ago which I didn't have chance to post, better post it quick before I start to get too busy.



Recipe from 君之

Ingredients :

Chocolate cookies base :
100g cake flour
90g butter
1 tbsp (15ml) cocoa powder
50g caster sugar
25g dessicated coconut
3g baking powder

Chocolate Coconut Top Layer :
100g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
70g dessicated coconut
25g milk powder
30g dairy whipping cream
10g butter, cut into small pieces

Method :
Chocolate cookie base :
1. Sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder in a large bowl.
2. Add in dessicated coconut and caster sugar and mix well.
3. Mix in the melted butter until thoroughly combined.
4. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared 7" square pan. 
5. Bake in 180C preheated oven for 20 minutes. 
6. Set on a rack and cool completely in pan.

Chocolate Coconut Top Layer :
1. Place chocolate and butter in a bowl and pour in the whipping cream.
2. Cook with double boiler method and stir in occasionally until well combined.
3. Add in milk powder and dessicated coconut and mix well.

4. Spread it evenly on the cooled chocolate cookie base, use the back of the spoon to press and level it.
5. Chill it till harden. Remove from cake pan and slice into small squares.




TIPS
1. If using cake pan with removable base, use it directly, just push the base from bottom will do. For normal cake pan, please line with baking paper and must be higher than the baking pan for easy remove it from the pan.
2. When baking the chocolate cookie base, make sure dun over bake. The cookie will be soft after bake, will turn hard after cooling.
3. When slicing this snack, as the cookie base is easy breakable so try to use a thin and sharp knife to slice into small pieces.

Verdict?
This snack has 2 different texture, the crispy cookie base with chewy topping, chocolate mix with coconut fragrant, quite nice to munch.
