Hi fellow foodies! This week I am starting to share my recipes with you as a printable format, so I would love your feedback on the new feature.
This gluten free Chocolate Peppermint Slice is a delicious alternative for those who cannot have a traditional biscuit base. however, it tastes so good that no-one will know it is gluten free!
Please make sure your cocoa powder, cooking chocolate and icing sugar are gluten free varieties. The biscuits I use for this base are Leda Arrowroot Biscuits.
You start by melting the butter and sweetened condensed milk together, then adding the other ingredients apart from the cooking chocolate and pressing this into a slice tray. Refrigerate for at east two hours. This base is very dark, rich and fudgy.
When it is set pour the chocolate over top and place in the fridge for a further hour.
Look at how rich and gooey this slice is!
This slice is great for a 3pm pick-me-up with a coffee, or a decedent after dinner treat.
