Double Chocolate Lamingtons

Yet another recipe sent to me from my friend in Wales. These remind me a lot of rich chocolate cake with a chocolate/coconut coating.

I've tried my best to convert the ingredients from British to American measures so I hope I was accurate here.

The chef who made these originally says the foil traps the steam thus a more even rising. You should have 1 cup of chocolate coating left over which you can use in other things if you wish.
