Recipe's preparation

  1. preheat oven 175*C

    mix dry ingredients 5 sec/ speed 4

    add honey, coconut oil and peppermint extract and mix 15 sec/ speed 4 or until a dough forms

    roll out between two sheets of baking paper to a thickness of 3-4mm

    place paper on baking tray and place in freezer for a few minutes

    with pizza wheel cut squares not larger than 4x4cm, place on tray lined with baking paper leaving enough space between for them to spread a little

    bake for 4 min

    leave on paper, cool, place in freezer once cold

    meanwhile melt chocolate with peppermint extract

    I prefer to do this in a shallow little pot that sits in a bigger pot over boiling water. 

    When the chocolate is smooth and the cookies are very cold I coat the top with a layer of chocolate and place them back into the freezer. 

    Once the top is firm I take them out, peel them carefully off the paper (until they are coated on both sides they are fragile) and brush the bottom with a layer of chocolate. 

    At this stage you can sprinkle on a little desiccated coconut for contrast or chocolate hail.

    Back into the freezer they go until chocolate coat is firm.

Tip

It is a time consuming item but everybody who was lucky to get any of the thin mints loved them! They make a special gift for a special friend! 

The baking step certainly adds time, next time I make these I will leave out the baking powder and coat the frozen squares just as they are. They might need to be a bit thicker to make them more stabil to take the hot coating! 

Happy experimenting!
