White Chocolate Mint Slice

I wanted to experiment a bit with tray bakes and came up with this little bake. I really wanted one that had a mint flavour on its own. I am very happy with the results! These are nice and sweet without being overbearing and disappeared from the fridge rather quickly.

If you want to try some other tray bakes, I also have a great recipe for Mint Aero Traybakes and the base for this traybake was inspired by this Maltesers Slice.
