Every year in the lead up to Xmas I seem to start baking regularly. Today I pulled out my recipe book and rediscovered this old favourite - a simple and easy no bake chocolate peppermint slice, it is sooooo good I can't believe I haven't made it in such a long time!
The base is crunchy and the filling is lovely and fluffy, this is one for lovers of all things sweet!

150g Butter - melted
1/2 C Sugar
4 T Cocoa
2 T Golden syrup
1 t Vanilla essence
1 Packet round wine biscuits - crushed

(double for a thicker layer)
100g Butter, softened

1½ C Icing Sugar - sifted

2 T Cream

1 t Peppermint Essence

Chocolate Topping
300g Dark chocolate melts
25g Butter - melted

-Melt butter, add to cocoa, sugar, golden syrup, vanilla essence and crushed round wine biscuits in a large bowl and mix well to combine.
-Press mix into a 20 x 30cm tin (lined with baking paper)  
-Place in the fridge to set.

-To make the peppermint filling, cream the butter, icing sugar, cream and peppermint essence until fluffy.
-Spread over the base and refrigerate until set.
-Cover with melted chocolate topping.
-Leave the chocolate to set and then cut into small slices

TIP: you can add a tiny drop of green food colouring to the peppermint filling

Happy baking!
