Chocolate Mint Slice

CHOCOLATE MINT SLICE

[ makes 9 huge bars, 9-18 servings ]

 

Chocolate layer:

1/4 cup cacao butter

Scant 1/4 cup coconut oil

1 1/4 cups cacao powder

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 cup maple syrup

 

Mint layer:

1 3/4 cups shredded coconut 

Scant 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

3 tablespoons maple syrup

2-4 drops peppermint essential oil  

 

To make the chocolate layer: melt the coconut oil and cacao butter in a thick pot on low heat, then whisk in the rest of the ingredients until you have a lusciously smooth chocolate mixture. Spread half this mixture evenly into the bottom of a lined pan and put in the fridge. Set aside the remaining half to use in a moment.

 

To make the mint layer: blend everything until smooth. Spread evenly over your chocolate layer in the pan, then finish by spreading the remaining chocolate over this. Leave in the fridge for at least a few hours and slice. If they stick around longer than a day and you keep them refrigerated overnight: I'd recommend letting them sit at room temperature for around 10-15 minutes before eating so they soften.
