After Dinner Mints

What better way to finish off a large Christmas meal then with a nice cup of coffee and some after dinner mints, not only do they look fantastic they taste delicious too!

After Dinner Mints

Makes 24

You will need small chocolate foil cups.

200ml Pure Cream
400gms Dark Chocolate
2 tbsp Creme de menthe (or peppermint essence)
2 Peppermint Crisps Crushed

Place Chocolate and cream in a heat proof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water making sure the bowl doesn't touch the water. Stir with a metal spoon until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the creme de menthe.

Place a zip lock bag in a large glass and push the bag down the bottom and place the top of the bag over the glass. Fill the bag with the chocolate and cut a small hole in one of the bottom corners so it acts like a piping bag.

Fill the foil cups 3/4 of the way and the scatter the peppermint crisp over the top.

They can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
