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 in the 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 the topping is firm. Cut with a warm knife to give a clean cut.

Note: I replaced Copha with Pastry Margarine.






圣诞月快乐!
