Choc mint slice

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp peppermint oil (depending on how minty you like it)
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate (crumbled)

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
  • Combine dates, coconut oil, cacao and peppermint oil in a food processor and blend until fully combined.
  • Press the date mixture into a shallow non-stick baking pan to about 0.5-1 cm in thickness
  • Sprinkle crumbled dark chocolate onto the surface of the slice. Ensure all of the mixture is completely covered.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, allowing the chocolate to melt over the date mixture. If unevenly spread, use a spatula to distribute the chocolate evenly over the top. Bake for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove slice from the oven and allow to cool (we don't recommend placing it in the fridge straight away). Once completely cooled, cut into portions and store in the fridge.
