After Dinner Mints

We all love a chocolate fix after dinner lets be honest, no matter how amazing the dinner, it never had us 100% satisfied. Why not make your own to give your Christmas Party a personal touch?

These mints are super simple to make, you don’t need a mould or hours and hours for setting and you only need 5 ingredients plus a set of snazzy cookie cutters.


  • 1 egg white
  • 1 drop lemon juice
  • 350g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 100g dark chocolate


  1. Place the egg white in a bowl and whisk until it is frothy (3-4 mins).
  2. Add in the drop of lemon juice and stir well.
  3. Split the icing sugar roughly into 3 (150g, 100g, 100g) and add in each in turn, ensuring the mix is well combined between each addition.
  4. Stir in the peppermint extract.
  5. Roll out the mix onto a flat surface (dusting the surface with icing sugar to prevent the ‘dough’ sticking) roughly 7mm thick.
  6. Use cookie cutters to cut the sheet into smaller shapes. Continue until there is no mint dough left.
  7. Place on a tray and refrigerate for 2 hours until hard.
  8. Melt the chocolate and dip in the mints.
  9. Place back in the fridge to allow the chocolate to harden.
