Chocolate Peppermint Slice (薄荷巧克力块)

安哥第一次吃到他为我而买的食谱甜点 -
Almond Truffle Slice,甜香滑润,心情超好。
即刻又钦点第二道来自同一本书的甜点,
薄荷巧克力块(Chocolate Peppermint Slice)。



反正自己也陶醉在这浓浓的圣诞气氛里头,
就暂时“只眼闭,只眼开”,
最多每天要他加勤运动好了。


很喜欢这甜点,清凉的薄荷味有着醒神作用,
巧克力更是甜滋滋的感觉,
这种丰富的甜点,“只能一小块”吃,
不然会腻得很。
这好比生活上,很多事件, 
适而可止就好,物极必反。


 Ingredients :
90g self raising - flour
30g cocoa powder
45g desiccated coconut 
60g sugar
140g butter,melted
1 egg, lightly beaten

Peppermint filling 
185g icing sugar
30g Copha(white vegetable shortening), melted,
2tbsp milk
1/2 tsp peppermint essence

Chocolate topping 
185g dark chocolate,Chopped
30g copha

Method :
1.   Preheat oven to 180‘C.  Line a lightly greased,18 x 28cm shallow tin with non-stick baking paper,over-hanging two opposite side.

2.   Sift the flour and cocoa into a bowl.  Stir inthe coconut and sugar, then add the melted butter and egg and mix well. press firmly into the tin. Bake for 15 minutes, press down with the back of a spoon and leave to cool.

3.  To make the peppermint filling, sift the icing sugar into a bowl, Stir in the Copha,milk and  peppermint essence.  Spread over the base and chill for 5-10 minutes ,or until firm.

4.   To make the chocolate topping ,put the chocolate and Copha in a heatproof bowl and stir over a pan of barely simmering water until melted.  Spread the chocolate topping over the filling.  Refrigerate the slice until hte topping is firm. Cut with a warm knife to give a clean cut.

Note: I replaced Copha with Pastry Margarine.
