Emma’s After Dinner Mints

Posted by Solitary Dancer on December 19, 2006

Here’s a lovely idea from Emma.  Emma is from the UK so if you are stuck on conversions to the U.S. Measurements checkout the kitchen help page and you will find links to web sites that will help you with conversions.

Here’s what Emma has to say.

Emma’s After Dinner Mints

I dont undertand your cup measurements…. so here are the amounts I use, but I am sure if you do it to taste it will be as good…

INGREDIENTS:

100g extra light cream cheese
a wedge of room temp butter
3 tbl splenda
1 tsp peppermint flavouring

DIRECTIONS:

Mix all the above together
pop in the freezer until fairly hard.
Using a melon baller (cool eh!) make the mix into balls and place spaced out on a flat plate.
Pop back into the freezer
When frozen (30 mins if you cant wait!) melt some dark chocolate in the microwave.
Using a cocktail stick, pierce the peppermint sweet and dip into the melted choc. Then pop the sweet into a mini paper case (not necessary, but looks good if making for friends) and remove the stick. These are so small they defrost v.quick. It gets messy to try and dip sloppy cream cheese… might need to re-freeze…
When all these are done, pop them in the fridge until ready to eat.

I made these for friends when they invited us round for a meal. They went down v.well. I knew they didnt like dark choc, so I made a batch using milk choc, which they loved.

I am going to make some for Christmas dinner, and will make dark, milk and white choc versions.
I am also going to try smashing up some nuts, and mixing them with the melted choc, and then dipping them. Im not that good with nuts blood sugar wise, so I am hoping they wont be that good!

p.s… just thought, orange flavour… with the choc… mmm!

p.p.s make sure your bloodsugars are low b4 making these… lots of bowls to scrape….
