Combine all ingredients in bowl to create fudgy consistency. Spoon over slice and smooth down with a flat butter knife. Decorate with extra coconut and place in the freezer until set.

*Tips*
I cut this this batch into 25 pieces then stored in air-tight container in the freezer to have a treat when we need it! Double the mixture to make a bigger batch.
