Roughly chop or break the biscuits into small pieces pieces and set aside, including all the crumbs.
In a large bowl, melt together the butter, sweetened condensed milk, cocoa, salt and chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts. Stir really well between each until it’s just melted together. Don’t overheat.
Add the biscuit pieces and coconut and mix well.
Tip into the prepared tin, pressing down firmly to give a flat surface.
Place in the freezer while you prepare the topping.
FOR THE TOPPING
Melt chocolate and cream in bowl in the microwave, in 30 second bursts, stirring well between each. It might look like it's seizing up but just stir it until you have a smooth glossy ganache.
Spread over the biscuit layer, then scatter over sprinkles.
Leave it to set for at least 4 hours in the fridge then slice into small pieces to serve.
Don't use skim sweetened condensed milk, or the slice won't set.
The slice should be kept chilled in the fridge. Will sit at room temperature fine but will be a little sticky. If taking it on a picnic, wrap a piece of baking paper around the bottom and sides to make it easy to grab and keep it in a chilled esky / icebox.
For clean cuts, without cracks in the top, heat the knife first then cut slowly allowing it to melt a line in the top layer of chocolate.
