  • Place back into the fridge to set.

    Oh my!!!! I have been looking for this recipe for over 10 years. I had them at my sons school Christmas get together and fell in love with them. I had no idea who made them so couldn’t ask for the recipe. Can’t wait to serve them to my family on Christmas Day. Thank u so much.

      Yay! I’m so glad you found them!

    I wondered if you could give me an alternative to mint slice biscuits in England? I would like to give these a go but can’t picture the biscuits? Thank you

    1. peppa1969 says:

      we have something called Viscount biscuits, they look similar but they’re covered in chocolate too?

    2. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi there, I’m not sure to be honest but I’ll leave your comment here and hopefully someone in England may be able to help! xx

  4. Karlee Carney says:

    Hi Lucy! I’m so excited to make these for a Christmas BBQ this weekend but I’m having trouble finding spearmint leaves, it looks like Allens have discontinued them! Do you have any other ideas of how to make the holly leaves? I’m stumped!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Karlee, IGA sells them (as the Black and Gold brand), I think Big W has them too. Oh and Kmart!! Also a lot of $2 shops sell them! Good luck! xx

  5. Marjorie Metcalfe says:

    I had to make these as soon as I found the recipe even though it’s only August. I tell myself it’s training for Christmas. They were a hit for my husband as well as myself.
    Thank you so much for sharing.
