Vegan Peppermint Kiss

Happy Valentine’s Day you lovebirds! It’s time to treat yourselves and the ones you love. This is one of my go-to desserts. I love anything peppermint and simple! If you’re not a carob fan you can sub it out and use cacao. Enjoy lovers!

Method – Base

  1. Line a 9 inch x 9 inch baking tray with parchment paper
  2. Add all base ingredients to your Vitamix wet container in the order listed above and pulse on HIGH until you get a crumbly texture. I like to leave large chunks of almonds in there but you can process it longer if you don’t want any large chunks.
  3. Press all base ingredients into your lined tray and pop into the fridge to set / harden.

Method – Mint Layer 

  1. Add all mint layer ingredients to your Vitamix wet container and blend until nice and smooth.
  2. Pour on top of your base.
  3. Pop into the fridge or freezer to set.

Method – Chocolate Layer 

  1. Melt your chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.
  2. When melted stir in some coconut oil.
  3. Pour your melted chocolate over your peppermint layer and spread until smooth.
  4. Refrigerate until firm.

Once your slice has set in the fridge take out and cut into individual slices. It’s a good idea to keep these chilled right up until serving.
