Chocolate Mint Biscuits

I think I’ve mentioned to you before that I’m a total sucker for anything chocolate-mint flavoured. In fact, chocolate mint choc-tops at the cinema are honestly one of my favourite things in the world. And don’t even get me started on how good blocks of peppermint chocolate are. And my super easy peppermint slice… OMG!!!

Chocolate Mint Biscuits

Anyway, these chocolate mint biscuits have all of the goodness of that yummy flavour combination… plus the added benefit of being the perfect partner to an afternoon cup of tea. Yes, Nanna alert over here!

Chocolate Mint Biscuits

Just like when you make yoyo biscuits, you want to keep these chocolate mint biscuits nice and small. I don’t know how many times I’ve got carried away and made them way too big… totally forgetting that you end up sandwiching two of them together! So keep them little and they’ll make the perfect sized treat.

If you’re after something a little different, you can fill these biscuits with a caramel filling. OMG that is SO good. Actually, that reminds me that I really need to do that again soon!
