Lagusta's Luscious makes a homemade mint schnapps with garden mint to flavor these simple candies. To make them, a homemade fondant (a lovely soft, supple sugar-dough that they make from scratch) is quickly run through a chocolate enrobing machine to create the thinnest possible layer of chocolate encasing all that beautiful refreshing mintiness. Selma Miriam is the founder of Bloodroot Feminist Vegetarian Restaurant in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where Lagusta worked, off and on, for a decade. Her breadth of knowledge, bracingly opinionated politics, and commitment to her community make her an inspiration to all who know her. Lagusta went to Bloodroot as a young cook eager to learn about a business that seemed to combine all her passions. Years later she has found in Selma a best friend over forty years her senior whose opinions she can trust and whose excitements and discoveries she delight in sharing.

Ingredients: truly ethical chocolate (cocoa mass, cocoa butter, vegan sugar, soy lecithin, vanilla), organic coconut oil, organic confectioner's sugar (contains organic cornstarch), organic chocolate mint extract, peppermint extract, agar-agar (a seaweed), homemade peppermint schnapps, vanilla, sea salt.
