Arctic mints are a long time favourite in my household. The same size as a Jaffa, they are a candy shell coated chocolate ball. The coating has a peppermint flavour and is coloured either green or white. Originally these were made with a small mint in the centre but, like so many other confectionery items, time has changed the manufacture of these morsels.
It took me almost 3 years to find supplies of these – during which time I had many requests for them…..certainly keeps you keen to find a product when the customers are asking for it! They are currently manufactured in Victoria and sold as “Peppermint Choc Balls”.
For a quick and effective Christmas lolly plate, mix up a combination of jaffas and arctic mints – red, green and white all together.
