Raw chocolate peppermint slice

Easy Raw Chocolate Peppermint Slice – No Cooking!

This raw chocolate peppermint slice is a recipe that’s been kicking around for a few years, and it’s great if you’re eating a raw diet, or if you’re vegan, vegetarian or even if you just like healthier versions of chocolatey peppermint sweets…

I created this recipe a number of years ago when I was eating a predominantly raw diet. Once again the super versatile avocado is the star ingredient, just like it is in my avocado chocolate mousse and my creamy avocado dressing on zucchini noodles.

This chocolate peppermint slice is kinda chewy and chocolatey on the bottom, kinda soft and gooey and pepper-minty in the middle and then smooth and chocolatey on the top.

The whole thing is raw (so no baking required) and it’s definitely hard to stop at one piece! It always went down a treat at work functions and other occasions. Here’s the recipe and don’t forget to come back and let me know how it went!
