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.
- 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
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.
