What a decadent flop! It didn't look like the one in the book (High Tea, Viking 2014) but it still tasted good - evil good. I rarely use condensed milk (so much sugar!) but I made an exception for this easy slice – just pour in each ingredient on top of the last one.

125 g butter, melted
1 c sweet biscuit crumbs (I used gluten-free arrowroot biscuits)
1 c desiccated coconut
325g chocolate chips
395g tin condensed milk
1 c nuts, roughly chopped (I used cashews and almonds)

Preheat oven to 180C. Lightly grease and line a 20 cm x 30 cm slice tin.

Pour the melted butter into the tin. Sprinkle over the biscuit crumbs, followed by the coconut. Scatter over the chocolate chips in an even layer, then pour over the condensed milk. Top the slice with chopped nuts.
Bake for about 30 min. Cool, then cut into fingers.
Mine didn't hold in finger shapes so I renamed them choc-nut bites. The condensed milk and chocolate is real sugar overload so you really need the coconut and nuts to balance it out.
