This easy to bake Nutella coconut bars / slice/ squares recipe is so delicious – the crunch of the base contrasts so well with the lush chocolate filling. Make these and try and stop at just one piece!

125 grams butter, at room temperature, diced

Meanwhile, mix all the topping ingredients together in a small bowl.
