KEY INGREDIENTS IN PEPPERMINTE COFFEE

  • Powdered sugar: One of the best things about this recipe is that you can make it with just 4 ingredients. The first of these ingredients is powdered sugar. It sweetens the peppermint filling so that the strong mint flavor does not drown out the sweetness of the candy.
  • Sweetened condensed milk: The condensed milk also helps to sweeten the cool peppermint flavor. Along with that, it adds the necessary liquid to form the mixture of peppermint and sugar into a dough.
  • Peppermint extract: Of course, the most important ingredient in mint sweets is mint. Peppermint extract has a strong taste, so you only need 1 tsp.
  • Semi-sweet melting slices: The melted chocolate coats the mint filling for amazing, cool chocolate candy. Do not try to replace chocolate chips with semi-sweet melt slices in this recipe. The chocolate chips do not get as smooth as the slices and you may end up with lumpy peppermint meatballs.

TIPS FOR MAKING PEPPERMIN COFFEE

  • Peppermint filling: Add ¾ cup of sweetened condensed milk, 3. Cups of powdered sugar and 1. Teaspoon of peppermint extract to your stand mixer. Mix at medium speed until all is mixed. You can taste the dough to make sure it has enough mint for you. If you prefer an extra mint flavor, simply add a little more of the flavored extract.
  • Form: Roll the Peppermint Patty dough over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or tabletop. Continue rolling until it is an even ¼ inch thick. Let the dough dry for 2 hours. Cut into 1 inch round using a cake slicer and let them dry for another hour. If you lack time, cut and freeze the dough for the peppermint meatballs for 20 minutes instead of letting it dry, and dip them in chocolate while still cold.
  • Note: The amount of homemade peppermint candy you get depends on how big you cut the peppermint dough, you can make them a little bigger depending on what you prefer.
  • Melted chocolate coating: Put the melted chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Put the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave again until completely melted. If your chocolate does not melt evenly, add a few drops of coconut oil until it has a consistency that is smooth enough to dip.
  • Coat filling: Use a fork to dip each slice of dough in the melted chocolate, and knock off any excess chocolate on the side. Place the steaks on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Continue dipping steaks until they are all coated and let them sit until completely dry.

I have tried a lot of Tiramisu over the years, but I have to say that the best Tiramisu I have had was the first time I went to Italy. We went to a dinner party in Venice, I tried the tramezzini sandwich, rich zabaglione and savoiardi or Italian lady fingers.

As soon as I got home from Italy, I started developing this easy Tiramisu recipe that you can make with just a simple frying pan and a mixing bowl. I have recreated the tasty authentic Tiramisu recipe with a few small changes for convenience, and most of the ingredients can be found in any local grocery store as I could not find many of the specific items I would have used in Italy. I recommend serving slices of Tiramisu with a cup of strong coffee.
