Peppermint Slice (No Bake)

This delicious slice is no-bake. It’s not low sugar, but thankfully we have a new raw editor, Nikki, and her contribution will cancel this out.

Inspired by the vegan treats at Revel Cafe

Don’t be put off by the 3-part recipe. It’s quick-quick-quick to make.

nobake

INGREDIENTS

Base
250g plain biscuits (gluten-free biscuits, if preferred)
125g margarine
1/2 cup coconut
2 tablespoons cocoa

Fondue
1 & 1/2 cups icing sugar
50g coconut oil (or vegetable shortening)
2 tablespoons soymilk
1 teaspoon peppermint essence

Topping
200g dark chocolate
50g coconut oil (or vegetable shortening)

INSTRUCTIONS

Blend biscuits in food processor. Add other base ingredients. Blend into a dough. Press dough into a baking tin (no need to grease). Refrigerate while you prepare the fondue.

Quickly clean your food processor. Melt your coconut oil. Add all fondue ingredients to the food processor, including melted coconut oil. Using processor, blend into a paste. Use a spatula to apply this layer to your base, then refrigerate while you prepare the chocolate.

Melt chocolate and coconut oil together (I melt mine in a bowl, over hot water, do not get any water in the mixture). When ready, pour this over the other two layers, and tip your pan to gain even distribution. Chill for 20 minutes or until chocolate is firm. Cut into squares before it is totally solid.

This tastes best once it’s been refrigerated overnight to gain full firmness. You’ll need to keep it refrigerated before serving, especially in Summer.

  1. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but
    I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    • Hey, I use a template so it automatically appears. It might be a setting? I’m pretty sure I recall setting one of the security settings to say “yes, use captcha” to identify humans and cut down on bot-spam… poke about in your settings?
