  2. Place sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, lemon juice and rind in a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the Copha chocolate mixture and mix until smooth.
  3. Pour over the base and smooth the top. Put in the fridge to set for 20 minutes.
  4. Place extra coconut and lemon rind in a small bowl and mix to combine. Sprinkle over the slice to serve. Slice into 24 bars.
