There are some foods that are just meant to be paired together. Like iconic duos of mac ‘n cheese, pie and sauce, vegemite and toast; choc mint is a classic flavour combination. If you’re craving something that might remind you of the supermarket favourite since 1960s, these easy vegan choc mint biscuits will satisfy nostalgic and sweet cravings.
Easy Vegan Choc Mint Biscuits
This recipe couldn’t be any easier. With only the most basic of pantry ingredients, little kneading and no resting time for the dough, this will soon become a go-to recipe. It’s up to you whether you let the icing set or eat the biscuits warm with sticky icing.
Make these biscuits on the smaller side of 1 – 2 bites. The dough will yield about 25 biscuits, enough to satisfy any craving with plenty of left overs. Lovely with a coffee but these biscuits are especially nice with a cup of tea. Tea and peppermint – another iconic pairing.
