Ingredients

  • 1 egg white
  • 350g white icing sugar + extra for shaping
  • 3 drops peppermint essence
  • 2 drops green food colouring
  • 125g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

Method

    1. Whisk the egg white until frothy. Sieve in the icing sugar and mix well. Add the peppermint essence and the colouring and mix well.
    2. Sprinkle icing sugar onto your hands. Roll teaspoon-sized amounts of the mixture into small balls and place onto a baking tray.
    3. Flatten each ball with a fork to form flat discs. Place in the fridge for 1 hour until firm.
    4. Put the chocolate pieces into a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl onto a pan of simmering water (about 5cm deep).
    5. When the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat and stir until smooth. Allow to cool a little.
    6. After 1 hour, take out the peppermint sweets. Dip each sweet into the chocolate until half covered. Place the sweets on the non-stick paper to set. Keep in a cool place or a fridge until needed.
