Peppermint Dark Chocolates for Valentine's Day
Easy and delicious peppermint dark chocolates to impress your Valentine!
Prep Time10 mins
Total Time1 hr
Servings: 24 chocolates
- 350 gr dark chocolate
- 330 gr powdered sugar around 3 cups
- 1 tsp peppermint extract or more to taste
- water to desired consistency
Melt dark chocolate in the microwave, on 20 second intervals, and stir in between. When the chocolate is melted and slightly cooled, pour a little bit in each mould and use the back of a small spoon and work your way up to the edge of the mould. This way the entire mould is covered in a thin layer of chocolate, but not completely full as we need to fill them with the peppermint fillings! Place them in the fridge to set, around 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the fillings. Add the powdered sugar to a bowl, pour in the peppermint extract and a little water. Add more water until you get the desired consistency. I like it firm but slightly runny. If it gets too runny, add in more powdered sugar.
Add a dollop of peppermint filling into each mould, remember to not fill completely to the edge. Add melted chocolate on top and level them with the edge of the mould. Rap the moulds firmly on the kitchen counter a few times to get rid of any air bubbles. Place back to the refrigerator and chill for about 30 minutes, or until set.
