Peppermint Dots

11th Day of Christmas.

Peppermint is one of the holiday favors. Last year I made peppermint marshmallows, and in 2013 I made Peppermint ice cream. Today I wanted to make these small peppermint dots. My dad made these for christmas, and I have only known them as a homemade candy. The dots are small in size, but Big in flavor.

Makes a lot.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white (35 g)
  • 225 g confectionary sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract 
  • 50-60 g good dark chocolate or chocolate pearls, I use Valrhona
  • 1 tablespoon crushed candy cane

Directions:

Whisk egg whites with peppermint extract and sugar, until you have a thick dough. Put the dough in a pastry bag with a round tip. Pipe bite-size dots onto a jelly pan lined with sheets parchment paper. Decorate with chocolate pearls and/or crushed candy cane. 

Let the dot dry over night and keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!
