Chocolate and mint together has been one of my favourite flavour combinations for a very long time. Growing up my mum would always have a packet of chocolate biscuits hidden in the veggie draw of our refrigerator, and more often than not it would be Choc Mint slice. Of course as kids we found this secret stash and would quite often help ourselves to a biscuit or two hoping that mother would not notice, which I am sure she did. These biscuits are an all time Aussie favourite, with a chocolate biscuit base, a creamy mint layer and covered in smooth milk chocolate, so it only seemed natural to try and duplicate these flavours in a raw version.
Enter these slices, which have been featured on a lot of my morning smoothie bowls recently. I can not get enough!! With a chocolate coconut crumble base and two smooth cashew cream layers, one chocolate and one mint, coloured with spirulina for the green “mint” look, topped off with a smooth and creamy chocolate layer that oozed down the sounds. These slices are my favourites at the moment, and with good reason!
