Mint Chocolates

Chocolates | 3rd January 2010 | By

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.

This is what I did:
  • 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.
Not really much more to add rather than: yum!

    Really good idea on mixing the milk and dark – I love the Green & Black milk chocolate because it is that bit darker. And these are so cute!

    Hi Elisabeth

    The chocolate moulds were actually butter moulds that were given to me many years ago. I never used them for butter, but do fish them out from time to time for chocolate. I guess it wouldn’t be hard to find chocolate moulds on the internet though.

    Foodycat – I really like G&B milk chocolate too and used it in this recipe. My worry is what will I do if Cadbury’s gets taken over by Kraft!
