Dessert & Fresh Breath in One Bite

Soft minty cool insides, surrounded by a rich dark chocolate shell.

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups icing sugar (+ more for kneading)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp regular or evaporated milk, or milk alternative
  • 1/4 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-3 drops of peppermint extract, to taste
  • 1 cup GF semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

Directions:
Using a mixer, combine all ingredients, except the chocolate, and beat until smooth. Test consistancy with your fingers – press together, shouldn’t be too sticky. If it is, take out the ‘dough’ and knead on the countertop with more icing sugar until soft and smooth (like fondant).

Shape into a flattened ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Roll out dough between two layers of plastic wrap to 1/8-1/4″ thick (or could roll into small balls and flatten with your hands), and cut using a small cookie cutter. Place cut outs on a lined baking tray and place in freezer for 1 hour.

Melt chocolate, then dip/spread each pattie until fully covered in chocolate. Let excess drip off, then place back on baking sheet. Refrigerate until set (and store in fridge until ready to serve).
