Peppermint Pennies

It’s no surprise to hear I’ve got a sweet tooth. I’m a woman, it’s like written into our DNA somewhere, I’m sure of it. So when I had this idea to blend two of my most favoured ‘sweets’ together it was like I had a brain explosion! It was something so simple, so easy and I laughed at myself for not thinking of it sooner.

I love Oreos and I loooove Mint sooooo check out this comnbination of AWESOME-NESS…
penniesWhat you’ll need:

– Peppermint essence
– Oreos
– Chocolate {to melt}

The How-to’s:

– Basically you need the biscuit halves of the oreos. So just separate them, scrap away the tasty centre and put the two parts to one side {or you can leave them on, totally up to yourself!}. Melt your chocolate, add the peppermint essence {I added a cap full, however I reckon two caps would’ve been just perfect} and once your ready place an oreo half onto a fork, dip it into the melted chocolate {bottom first} and with a spoon pour melted chocolate over the top and then leave it to ‘drip-harden’ over a bowl {still keeping it on the fork}. Or do what I did and place them on 2xskewers over the bowl, I found you can have more being left to set that way.
Once these were ready {after being in the fridge for half an hour} I cannot even tell you how good they smelt. That minty aroma, the chocolate-y goodness…I honestly couldn’t wait to taste one. So I boiled that kettle and got myself ready for my first bite and man….it was everything I hoped it would be! Something so simple to make and effective in taste. Sure fire winner.

Make them yourself, put the kettle on and ENJOY!
