Learn how to make chocolate mints and peppermints with this easy candy recipe.
Ingredients
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoonfuls cold water
  • Sifted confectioner's sugar
  • ½ teaspoonful essence peppermint or a few drops peppermint oil
  • ½ teaspoonful of rose extract
  • 1 or 2 squares Baker's Chocolate
  • Green food coloring
  • Pink food coloring
Instructions
  1. Beat the egg white, add the cold water and gradually work in sugar enough to make a firm paste.
  2. Divide the sugar paste into three parts.
  3. To one part add the peppermint and a very little green food coloring. Work and knead the mixture until the paste is evenly distributed throughout.
  4. Roll the candy into a sheet one-fourth inch thick, then cut out into small rounds or other shape with any utensil that is convenient.
  5. Color the second part a very delicate pink, flavor with a rose extract and cut out in the same manner as the first.
  6. To the last part add one or two squares of Baker's Chocolate, melted over hot water, and flavor with peppermint.
  7. Add a little water, as the chocolate will make the mixture thick and crumbly. Begin by adding a tablespoonful of water, then add more if necessary, knead and cut these as the others.
