  2. 70g Cocao butter
  3. 2 tbsp Sweet Freedom or organic rice malt syrup
  4. 6-8 Drops of peppermint essential oil (food grade)
  5. A kitchen thermometer
  1. Place the cocao butter in a large heat proof bowl.
  2. sift the cocao powder into the bowl.
  3. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water.
  4. When the butter is 75% melted gently mix ensuring that the temperature doesn't go above 43°C
  5. When the chocolate reaches 42°C remove from the pan, wipe any moisture from the bowl and transfer the mixture to a clean bowl.
  6. Stir in the Sweet Freedom and peppermint oil.
  7. You are now going to temper the chocolate. This will stop it from melting at room tempreture, give it a nice glossy finish.
  8. Using a flexable spatula, gently move the chocolate around the bowl, scraping down from the sides every few minutes until the tempreture comes down to 31°C.
  9. You can now pour the mixture into molds and allow to set either in the fridge or in a cool room.
  10. When the chocolates are completey set (usually in about 30 mins in the fridge) you can remove from the molds.
