Peppermint Aero Mountain Munchies: Flapjack recipe
Peppermint Aero Flapjack is a great combination of flavours.
Aero is abbreviated from aerated, on account of all the air bubbles found within the chocolate. This type of chocolate was first produced by Rowntrees in York, Yorkshire, and is now popular all over the world.
