Dessert & Fresh Breath in One Bite
Soft minty cool insides, surrounded by a rich dark chocolate shell.
- 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
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).
