How To Make Copycat Fannie May Mint Chocolate Meltaways

Prep: 20 mins
Chill and Set: 4 hrs 15 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 4 hrs 45 mins
Makes:

Ingredients

  • 16 oz unsalted butter, softened
  • 12 oz milk chocolate bars, or dark chocolate bars or chips, shaved if using bars
  • 1⅓ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt

Green Chocolate Candy Coating:

  • 12 oz white chocolate bars , or chips, shaved if using bars
  • ¼ tsp peppermint extract
  • green food coloring, drops
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, add more as needed

Instructions

  1. Prepare a pot with boiling water and place a heat-proof mixing bowl on top.

  2. Add your milk or dark chocolates and egg and whisk for roughly 5 minutes until evenly melted. Ensure that the boiling water does not touch the bottom of the mixing bowl. Set aside.

  3. In a mixing bowl attached to a hand beater, add the softened butter and sugar. Cream for roughly 5 to 7 minutes until the sugar has melted into the butter.

  4. Add the vanilla extract and salt then continue creaming.

  5. Fold the chocolate mixture into your butter mixture until evenly incorporated.

  6. Using silicone ice cube trays, fill up your molds with the prepared chocolate mixture.

  7. Scrape any excess with an offset spatula to smoothen the top of the molds.

  8. Chill your chocolate cube molds for at least 4 hours, best if overnight, until the chocolate firms up. Unmould from your ice cube trays when firm and set aside in a chilled area.

  9. Prepare your candy coating only when your chocolate cubes firm up. When ready, add all your candy coating ingredients into a heat-proof mixing bowl.

  10. Place this on top of your pot with boiling water and whisk for roughly 5 minutes until evenly melted. Ensure that the boiling water does not touch the bottom of the mixing bowl.

  11. You may also need to add more coconut oil to thin out your white chocolate mixture. The consistency of your coating should be similar to a free-flowing sauce.

  12. Once you have achieved the desired consistency, set aside.

  13. Add drops of green food coloring into your candy coating. Stir to combine and set aside.

  14. Working quickly and using forks, dip your chocolate cubes into your candy coating until fully coated. Working quickly will avoid the coating from hardening. However, should it harden, quickly melt the coating again on top of a pot of boiling water.

  15. Place these onto a cooling rack with a baking sheet underneath to catch any excess coating. Allow the coated chocolates to set at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.

  16. Then, transfer to a chilled area for roughly an hour before serving.

  17. Enjoy your Meltaways over hot tea or coffee. You can even melt your Meltaways into your hot tea or coffee for a sweet creamy beverage!
