Frozen choc mint slice

Ingredients:

Base

3/4 cup almond meal

3/4 cup desiccated coconut

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1 tbsp rice malt syrup or honey

1 tbsp cacao

1 tsp pure vanilla essence

Pinch salt

 

Mint choc icing

½ cup coconut oil, softened but not melted

3 tbsp cacao

2 tbsp almond butter

4 tbsp rice malt syrup or raw honey

1 tsp vanilla

A few good shakes pink salt

1 tsp peppermint essence or oil

Method

1. Put all the base ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined – put in a 20cm by 20cm baking paper lined pan. Use a spatula to evenly press it down, put in the freezer while you make the icing.

2. Put all the Mint choc icing ingredients except for the rice malt syrup into a small blender or food processor, blend until combined, then add the rice malt syrup and blend again, this time only for a few seconds until it is all mixed in - if you over mix it it will separate, if this happens add the 2 tbsp of boiling water.  

3. Get the base out of the freezer and spread the icing over the top. Using a spatula to spread it evenly. Put back in the freezer for an hour or so. 

4. Cut into squares, or use a circular cookie cutter to cut circles, serve topped with fresh mint leaves.
