Dark Chocolate Peppermint Rounds
Chocolate and peppermint may seem vastly different flavors but these two elements complement each other wonderfully when paired together. Dark Chocolate Peppermint Rounds are great for satisfying our sweet tooth with an elevated version of a traditional favorite. Rich and smooth dark chocolate is contrasted with the robust and invigorating minty flavor of Distiller’s Edition Single Batch Peppermint Oil to complete this classic pairing.
- 1 lb of Confectioners Suger
- 3 tbsp of Softened Butter
- 1/2 tsp of Distiller’s Edition Single Batch Peppermint Oil
- 1/2 tsp of Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 cup of Evaporated Milk
- 12 oz of Dark Chocolate Candy Wafers
- 1 tbsp of Vegetable Shortening
Combine the butter, peppermint flavoring, vanilla, and evaporated milk and stir to combine. Add the confectioner’s sugar a cup at a time and mix well, ensuring the finished mixture is not sticky. Roll the mixture into one-inch balls and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes, until the balls are slightly firmer. Remove them and use the bottom of a pint glass to flatten the balls into discs. Refrigerate for 30 additional minutes. Add the dark chocolate candy wafers and shortening to the top of a double-boiler and heat until fully melted, stirring to combine. Dip the flattened mint discs into the chocolate and place them on wax paper to cool and harden.
