Peppermint White Chocolate Frogs

Yields8 Servings

 8 oz white chocolate pieces, or green colored candy melts
 2 drops peppermint extract, about 1/8 teaspoon

1

Add the white chocolate, or green candy melts, to the top of a double boiler or a heat-proof bowl set over simmering water. Add the peppermint extract and stir to combine. It is important to add the extract at this point. If it's added after the chocolate has melted, the difference in temperature might cause the chocolate to seize up and turn lumpy.

2

Heat the white chocolate over barely simmering water until the chocolate or candy melts have melted and turned smoothing, stirring frequently. Keeping the melted candy over simmer water so that it remains liquid, use a small spatula or spoon to fill 8 frog-shaped candy molds, smoothing the top of the candy as best you can. Once all the molds are filled, hit the mold on the counter several times to cause any bubbles in the candy to disperse and help the melted candy settle into the whole mold.

3

Refrigerate the filled mold for at least 1 hour before unmolding the chocolate frogs. Keep refrigerated until ready to eat; these will keep for a few weeks in an airtight container in the fridge.
