1 Stick / 8 Tbsp / 115g Butter
1/2 Cup / 100g White Sugar
1 Cup / 125g Flour
1/2 Cup / 45g Desiccated Coconut
1/4 Cup / 25g Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Baking Powder

3 Cups / 375g Powdered Sugar / Icing Sugar
2 Tbsp / 30g Butter
3 Tbsp Milk
1/2 tsp Peppermint Essence

7 oz / 200g Dark Chocolate
2 Tbsp Oil


Preheat oven to 180C / 350F. Line and grease a 20cm / 8″ square baking pan.
In a medium sized bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer add the butter and sugar. Cream together for 3-4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the creamed butter and sugar, the flour, cocoa powder, desiccated coconut and baking powder.
Fold the dry ingredients into the creamed butter and sugar until well combined.
Use a spoon to press the base evenly into a lined 20cm or 8″ square baking pan.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until slightly browned.

While the base is baking in the oven make the peppermint filling. Add the sugar, butter, milk and peppermint essence to a medium sized mixing bowl
Fold together until well combined with a wooden spoon. It should be pretty thick.
While the base is still hot from the oven add the peppermint filling on top.
Use an offset spatula to spread the filling into an even layer, getting right into the corners.
Leave to cool for 30-60 minutes before making the topping.


Once the base and filling has cooled make the chocolate topping.
Break or cut the chocolate up into small pieces and add to a heat proof bowl.
Pour the oil on top and melt the chocolate either in the microwave in 20 second bursts until smooth or over a water bath.
Pour the melted chocolate over the cooled peppermint filling and tilt the pan to cover the edges.
Transfer to the fridge for 2-3 hours or overnight until completely set.
