I’m a long-time fan of mint chocolate and I can’t resist a Fry’s Peppermint Chocolate Bar. For some reason I always connect mint chocolates with Christmas. Maybe it’s after dinner mints on Christmas day or candy canes or just that people like to add their favourite foods to the Christmas list (I know I do!!!) but, for whichever reason peppermint is definitely a Christmas flavour! And by extension peppermint cream chocolate bars!

I know that filled chocolate bars are a little more work than solid ones but I promise when you break of that first piece and pop it in your mouth you will realise that it was worth that little extra effort. Plus for all that luxury these are surprisingly simple.

Make sure that you have soaked the cashews overnight (if you are a little short on time 4 hrs should do the trick) this makes them super quick to blend into a gorgeous smooth peppermint cream filling!

The chocolate is super simple to make, just melt the drops and stir in the other ingredients. It takes less than 5 mins. One little trick I have here is that I let the chocolate cool for a bit before spooning into the chocolate moulds. This is basically so that it is easier to bring the chocolate up the sides of the mould. If the chocolate is too runny when you start it will just go straight to the base.

Don’t worry if this happens just leave it in the mould for a moment as it starts to thicken. You will then be able to use the back to a small teaspoon to spread it up the side. Once it is dense enough it will start to stick.

Make sure it is completely set before filling with the peppermint cream filling!
