This Chocolate peppermint slice recipe was sent in by Graham and Julia from far North Queensland. I haven't tried this recipe myself yet, but having a sweet tooth I am very keen to try it!
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup brown sugar
125g unsalted butter, melted
Filling 30g Copha, melted
2 cups icing sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp peppermint essence
Chocolate layer 125g dark chocolate
30g unsalted butter
1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Butter a 16cm x 26cm x 3cm slice tray (or close to those dimensions).
2. Combine flour, cocoa, coconut and brown sugar in a bowl, stir in melted butter and mix until well combined. Press mixture into slice tray and bake for 10-15 minutes until starting to brown. Remove from oven and cool slightly.
3. To make filling, place icing sugar in a small bowl, stir in melted Copha, milk and peppermint essence. Spread filling over warm base. Place tray in fridge for about 30 minutes until filling is cold.
To make the topping, melt butter and chocolate together, stir until smooth. Spread chocolate over peppermint filling.
4. Leave at room temperature to set and then slice into squares. I usually slice through the chocolate layer first, then go back and cut right through the base.
