Chocolate Mint Slice

As a kid, I have such fond memories of watching my favourite TV show of an evening whilst devouring half a packet (ok, maybe a whole packet –shh!) of Arnott’s Mint Slice.  OMG, they were just the best. 

I’ve tried the gluten free version and they’re okay, but still not as whole foods as I’d like. But how I miss that choc mint punch at the end of a hard day with my cup of tea. Perhaps I love them so much because it’s that nostalgic feeling.  Eating a mint slice transports be back to my family home to the childhood I loved so much.

Today is a great day because I finally get to share my love of choc mint with you.  I believe I’ve created an incredible version of that mint slice.  I’ve been playing around with it for a while and here it is.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.  If you’re a mint slice fan, as I am, let me know if this hits the spot for you.
