Chocolate Mint Slice


Chocolate Mint Slice

Somebody...please send help, because I cannot stop eating those! So freaking rich, full of flavors and textures! I am telling you this dessert option will easily become one of your faves once you try it! Coconut, dates, cacao powder...I mean what's there not to love?! Give them a shot, you will fall in love! ENJOY! 

For the base:

  • 1 1/2 cups almonds
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 6 medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

For the middle:

  • 3 cups shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp boiling water
  • 1 tbsp peppermint extract
  • 100ml coconut oil

For the top:

  • 3.5oz dark chocolate chips (vegan if required)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Line a square baking pan with baking paper.

To make the base, place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until you have a coarse texture, similar to sand. 

Transfer the base to the baking pan, pushing the mixture down with your fingers. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Rinse the food processor and make the middle layer by adding the shredded coconut, boiling water and peppermint extract and pulse until combined. Add the coconut oil and continue to pulse until combined.

Transfer the middle layer to the base and smooth out with the back of a spatula. Place back in the fridge for 30 minutes.

To make the top, add the chocolate and coconut oil to a small saucepan and heat on a very low heat. Pour the chocolate over the mint layer and place back in the fridge for another 20 minutes.

Slice into 18 serves and keep refrigerated in an airtight container.
