What to take along to a chilli & DVD extravaganza at a friend’s house last night – hmmmm. Some cooling After Chilli Mints came to mind, that along with some of my redcurrant vodka. I don’t have a terribly sophisticated palate when it comes to chocolate, plain dark chocolate doesn’t always quite do it for me. But I do like a really dark milk chocolate. So I thought I’d experiment with combining a dark and a milk to make these chocolates.
- Melted 100g 70% dark chocolate with 100g 35% milk chocolate.
- Stirred until smooth, then allowed to cool slightly.
- Added 1 drop of peppermint essential oil & stirred to combine.
- Spooned mixture into moulds & left to harden.
