Chocolate Mint Slice.

This is a great tasting slice with a biscuit base, peppermint flavored icing and a chocolate topping.

As my family love Caramel, I made the chocolate topping with a caramel flavored drinking chocolate,If you prefer you could use just plain drinking chocolate.

I have not tried it with cocoa in place of drinking chocolate as yet, the only difference it may make is it will not be as sweet.

I keep this mint slice in an airtight container in the pantry, as I find sometimes that biscuit type bases go soft in the fridge.

As it is a fairly thin slice, I used a 13inch(33cm) x 9inch(23cm) Lamington tray.

I make these Chocolate Mint Slices in three stages, as listed below !
All measurements and quantities are by Australian Standards.

Biscuit Layer: Ingredients (stage one.)

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups self raising flour.
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut.
  • 6 oz of butter.

Peppermint Icing: Ingredients (stage two.)

  • 3 dessertspoons milk
  • 1 oz solid white vegetable shortening (copha).
  • 1 cup icing sugar (no lumps)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint essence.

Chocolate Icing: Ingredients (stage three).

  • 1/2 cup of drinking chocolate.
  • 3oz solid white vegetable shortening (copha).

Stage one: Biscuit layer.

Sift flour, mix all dry ingredients together.
Melt butter and pour over dry ingredients. Mix well.
Press into a greased and lined Lamington tray (as described above).
Bake in a moderate oven 180-185 c for approx. 20 minutes.
Let it cool slightly before pouring peppermint icing on top.

Stage two: Peppermint Icing.

Melt chopped shortening over a slow heat.
Sift icing sugar into basin.
Add melted shortening, peppermint essence and milk. Mix very well.
Spread evenly over biscuit layer.

When Peppermint icing is cold do stage three.

Stage three: Chocolate Icing.

Melt chopped shortening over a slow heat, then pour it over drinking chocolate .
Mix it very well.
Let it cool slightly.
Then pour Chocolate Icing evenly over Peppermint icing

Work fast as chocolate icing sets rather quickly.
Leave it to set for a couple of hours.
Then cut it into slices, as big or as small as you like.

Place in an airtight container lined with baking paper and leave in pantry.


Chocolate Mint Slices go great with a cup or mug of Coffee or perhaps a cup of Tea or hot chocolate.

I do hope you and your family enjoy these Chocolate Mint Slices.

They are sweet but very nice. :) :)

      Hi Oliversmum!

      I love this recipe. I have an unsuspecting 14 year old who is now baking little cakes.

      I'm gonna try to get her to make it for me!

      AliciaC Hi. Yes they do go together perfectly, one without the other is not the same.

      I also love peppermint/mint vanilla ice cream, it has such a wonderful taste, especially with shaved chocolate on top

      Hope you like this chocolate mint slice if you get time to make it.

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment, it is very much appreciated. :) :)
