Whittaker’s Ghana Peppermint Chew Slice. A touch of peppermint gives this delectable Whittaker’s chocolate slice a burst of freshness.
Makes 30 pieces
3/4 cup (150g) caster sugar
2 egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup (125g) self-rising flour
1/2 cup sifted Dutch cocoa
250g Whittaker’s Ghana Peppermint chocolate, broken into pieces
2 tbsp coconut oil or sunflower oil
Preheat oven to 160°C (fan bake). Line a 20 x 30cm tin with baking paper.
Melt butter in a pot with caster sugar, then remove from heat. When cool, add eggs (so they don’t scramble) and vanilla, then stir.
Add dry ingredients and mix well. Break up half of the chocolate, and mix into batter. Pour into prepared tin.
Bake for 25 minutes. Leave to cool in tin.
Chill slightly before icing. Store in a sealed container for up to two weeks.
To make icing, melt remaining chocolate pieces in a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir until combined and add coconut or sunflower oil.
