2 eggs
8oz butter or margarine
½ tsp peppermint essence
8oz white sugar

1 tbsp cream
½ tsp peppermint essence

Plus additional:
2oz plain chocolate
1 tbsp butter

Preheat the oven to about 360° Fahrenheit and slightly grease a jelly roll pan.

Beat the eggs and the sugar together until smooth.

In a microwavable bowl, melt the margarine and cooking chocolate and mix. Add the essence and combine. Then add the egg/sugar mixture and gently stir in the flour. Pour the mixture onto the jelly roll pan and bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until the mixture has set with a crusty top. Allow to cool in the pan.

In the meantime, beat together the butter cream ingredients and spread over the cool base. Chill in the fridge. Melt 2oz of plain chocolate and 1 tbsp butter and combine. Coat the slice with this mixture and sprinkle with flaked almonds.
