Linda is a lovely friend of mine who I met through starting TRTLMT. I posted some months ago Lindas Cherry Ripe Chocolates. Today I have another one of Lindas amazing creations for you!!! (How talented is this woman! Im in awe!!!)
I’ll hand it over to Linda:
This recipe might seem a lot, but is isn’t at all. Its QUICK and EASY, and very simple to do. Once you’ve made them, you will find it much easier every other time. I have just explained it the best that I could, so it won’t be confusing with the recipe instructions, that’s all. Firstly, my idea behind this recipe, was so the biscuits can also be taken straight from the freezer ready to eat straight away. I found the moist coconut flakes did the trick, and you wouldn’t know there was coconut in the them at all. Just using the icing sugar alone with other ingredients, they came out rock hard…… I also highly recommend using peppermint oil, don’t be tempted to use essence, it just won’t give you right result for this recipe. You can buy the oils in cake decorating shops, or websites on line. Or as my lovely assistant and taste tester used, was one from a health food store, which I never thought off. I’m not sure if the taste differs or not, but my assistant in trying this recipe out for me, was very happy with the result. So that’s a good sign. I have posted a photo of oil that I used in this recipe to give you some idea also.
- You can make this in stages, you don’t have make everything in one go
- You can also just use the biscuit base alone, and dip them in the melted chocolate
- If you have any filling or chocolate left over, just make some delicious mint patties
Saving the best for last, I want to thank Peta from the “The road to loving my Thermo Mixer ” for allowing me to share my recipe here.
HERE WE GO!
