Chocolate Peppermint Slice


Mmmm peppermint. I love it in biscuits, cakes, ice cream, mousse and anything else it may be included in. The fresh taste always leaves me delightfully satisfied and I can never get enough, resulting in the disappearances of my entire slice in a record 3 hours… woopsie!

My chocolate peppermint slice is a light and fluffy option if you’re feeling like something minty. And who doesn’t love chocolate and peppermint together, right?! Eat up, enjoy and try not to devour all the peppermint cream before pouring over the base!
