Ingredients

  • 200 g packet Arnott's Mint Slice biscuits
  • 125 g cream cheese, softened
  • 150 g melted milk chocolate
  • 20 red M&Ms
  • 10 spearmint leaf lollies

Instructions

  • Crush the Mint Slice biscuits in a food processor until they resemble fine crumbs. Place into a large bowl. 
  • Add the softened cream cheese and mix until combined.
  • Roll the mixture into heaped teaspoon sized balls and place onto a baking paper lined tray. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
  • Take out the red M&Ms from the packet and set aside. 
  • Slice the spearmint leaves into tiny slithers (you'll get about 5 out of each leaf) and set aside.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second bursts for 2-3 minutes, stirring each time, until just melted. 
  • Carefully dip your mint slice balls into the chocolate mixture with a fork and place back onto the tray (allow any excess chocolate to drip off).
  • Pop one red M&M and two spearmint leaf slithers onto the top of each of the balls.
  • Place back into the fridge to set.
  • Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

Notes

If the mixture is too soft to roll into balls, place the bowl into the fridge for 30 minutes to allow it to firm up before rolling.

I love this. They are so beautiful. I think I shall have a go at adapting this recipe to make it without additives. Make my own biscuits, add cacao. Something like that. Thanks for sharing.
