Raw Chocolate Peppermint Slice

Sharing is caring!

Raw Chocolate Peppermint Slice – a biscuit base with a creamy peppermint filling, topped with a thick raw chocolate spread.

I think this could quite possibly be the bestest tasting raw plant-based gluten free chocolate peppermint slice in the Universe. The chocolate-biscuit base has a nice little crunch to it, the peppermint cream is flavoured with vanilla and pure peppermint essential oil, and the chocolate layer on top is divinely rich and creamy. The use of coconut butter in the recipe helps it to set and keep it firm out of the fridge or freezer.

The only trick for the recipe is to allow each layer to set for a moment before you apply the next, so that when you cut slice it, it looks lovely and even inside.

Raw Chocolate Peppermint Slice

Totally indulgent chocolate slice with pure peppermint essential oil. Makes 16 incredibly piggy sized squares or 32 smaller ones. But let’s face it, you’ll have more than one so you may as well cut them big!
