Raisins and Coconut Slice

Raisins and Coconut Slice ... A tasty slice with a coconut base and raisins topping. It is so easy to make and uses basic ingredients. The original recipe was with sultana. I halved the recipe, only used 1/3 of the raisins, otherwise I just followed the recipe.
I really liked the coconut base, but the topping was a bit sweet ...  firm and crunchy on top and slightly soft underneath. Fantastic treat for those who have a very sweet tooth :)
