  4. With mixer running, gradually beat warm gelatine mixture into butter mixture until thick & creamy. Beat in peppermint essence to your taste & tint green with coloring. Spread evenly over cooled chocolate base.
  5. TOPPING
    Melt chocolate & oil & mix until smooth. Cool for 5 minutes. Spread over peppermint filling.

    Stand at room temperature until set.
