A 10 Minute Recipe

A few years ago I shared my recipe for Chocolate Peppermint Slice… and ever since, it’s been one of the most loved and popular slice recipes on Bake Play Smile. It also happens to be a MASSIVE favourite of mine! And so, the recipe has had a new little tweaks (including Thermomix instructions PLUS a video to show how simple it really is to make). This is going to become your new favourite slice (that is, if it isn’t already!!!!).

What You Need To Make Peppermint Chocolate Slice

  • sweetened condensed milk
  • butter
  • Cadbury peppermint chocolate (see recipe notes)
  • cocoa powder
  • peppermint extract
  • plain sweet biscuits (see recipe notes)
  • white chocolate
  • coconut oil (optional – see recipe notes)
  • green food colouring (to swirl through the chocolate)

Making peppermint slice in the microwave or a Thermomix (2 easy methods)

Whether you’re making this slice the conventional way (either in the microwave or on a stovetop) or in a Thermomix, both methods are just as easy as one another. 

Either way, this slice will only take you 10 minutes to prepare and uses hardly any dishes… the hardest part is waiting for it to set!

How to swirl food colouring through chocolate

A chocolate swirled top layer is my absolute favourite way to finish a no-bake slice. It looks so effective but is actually really simple to do!

Here’s my top tips for getting this pretty finish to your white chocolate layer: 

  1. Add coconut oil to the white chocolate when melting (this makes it easier to swirl the food colouring through later on). 
  2. Work quickly – you don’t want the chocolate to set while you’re still swirling!
  3. Add small (think… tiny!) drops of food colouring all over the slice – if the drops are too big, they won’t set. 
  4. Use a skewer or a knife to swirl the food colouring through in circular motions. 

Watch the video below to see it in action!

Notes

I used Arnotts Marie biscuits in this recipe. You can use any plain sweet biscuits/cookies. 
Cadbury peppermint chocolate can be bought in any supermarket in Australia or New Zealand. It has a milk chocolate outer layer filled with smooth peppermint filling. You can substitute for any soft filled peppermint chocolate block.
