Mintkyssar – Peppermint Kisses

IMG_9587

This is a traditional Swedish candy, which is perfect any time of the year, but obviously extra suiting around Christmas. I must say that I first tried an original recipe, but boiling candy without a thermometer is too hard when it comes to something that needs to be precisely a certain temperature. Instead I turned to my dear friend google – and fund a super easy, to good to be true, recipe at http://www.Ica.se. A Swedish peppermint kiss is supposed to be kind of crispy and melt in your mouth. Be patient with the drying though, it needs at least 10 hours.

Mintkyssar är ju så goda! Egentligen passar dom året om, men jag tycker dom passar speciellt bra precis runt jul. Jag prövade att koka ett vanligt recept först, men det var för svårt utan en termometer. Jag använde mig utav allas favorit google, och hittade ett recept som inte krävde någon kokning alls på http://www.ica.se. Detta recept resulterade i perfekt frasiga minkyssar som smälte i munnen!
