A great Christmas tradition in the UK is the humble mince pie. I must admit I am very partial to one (or two) of these but unfortunately I have to limit pastry intake.
Not to miss out on tradition, I took some food safe silicon and made a chocolate mould to form a tasty alternative. After melting the dark chocolate I mix in a few drops of peppermint oil and pour into the mould.
Simple as that and then onto a plate together with a few small Babybel cheeses for a treat that sums up what Christmas is all about…
…Mint Spies and baby cheeses.
