Wintery Mint Kisses [Vegan]


50 mint kisses


  • 1 1/4 cup Icing Sugar
  • 1 ½ tbs of Liquid Glucose (30 g)
  • 2/3 cup Water
  • ½ tsp Spirit Vinegar, (12%)
  • 10 drops Peppermint Oil
  • 75 grams of Dark Chocolate


  1. Mix icing sugar, liquid glucose, water and spirit vinegar in a thick bottom saucepan. Cook for around 10 minutes til 115C / 240F. Use a thermometer (if you own one) to be 100% sure.
  2. Pour mix into an lightly oil-greased bowl and let cool 15 minutes. Add peppermint oil and work the mass until it turns white. By using a spoon click the batter on parchment paper in small 1inch circles. (If the mixture gets too hard just carefully re-heat it now and then in the microwave or in a water bath)
  3. Melt the chocolate and place a small ammount in the center of each circle using two teaspoons or a small piping bag.


Store your mint kisses in the fridge or pantry, in a sealed container (cookie jar) with parchment paper between the layers.
