Minted Chocolate Bars with Strawberry Crisp Pearls
I think this first appeared at Christmas time because, well, it’s just such a pretty gift. If you don’t have my chocolate bar moulds yet, now is the time to get at least one. Two is better, but you can get by with one if you are patient enough to wait while each batch sets. The strawberry pearls are available from Savour Patiesserie school online and in WA European Foods are the best source of all things Callebaut. Of course you could also use freeze dried pink fruits, raspberries, strawberries etc, Anything for the pop of flavour and colour in one mouthful. YUM. Then wrap them prettily and you are in the candy business. Merry Chocolate!
Peppermint oil is known to enhance memory, increase alertness and have positive effects on mood, stress reduction, sleep enhancement, self confidence and cognitive function. The best reason to eat these chocolate bars ever!
