How To Make Peppermint Chocolate Slice 

Step 1 – Crush the biscuits

Use a food processor or Thermomix to crush the biscuits into crumbs (it’s fine for some larger chunks to remain). Stir through the cocoa powder.

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 (just like in my pink Turkish Delight Slice version). 

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.

Notes

RECIPE TIPS & TRICKS
Types Of Cookies To Use: You can use any type of plain sweet cookies for the base (like graham crackers if you’re in the US, Arnott’s Marie biscuits if you’re in Australia or digestive biscuits).
Peppermint Chocolate: 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. 
Peppermint Extract: Adding a couple of drops of peppermint extract to the slice gives it an extra peppermint flavoured boost. You can purchase peppermint extract from the baking section of most supermarkets (near the vanilla extract). You can omit the peppermint extract if you prefer. 
Green Swirled Chocolate Layer: To achieve the green swirled effect, add coconut oil to the white chocolate when melting (as this makes it easier to swirl the food colouring through). Add tiny drops of food colouring all over the slice and use a skewer or a knife to swirl the food colouring through in circular motions. 
Cutting The Slice: To cut the perfect slices, use a hot dry knife (run it under very hot water and then dry it with a tea towel) to gently score the chocolate layer. Once the chocolate layer has been scored through, press down firmly with the knife. 
Storing The Slice: Store the slice in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 months. The slice can be stored in the fridge or at room temperature.
