Ingredients

Chocolate Wafer Mix:
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
Mint Mojito Filling:
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream 
  • 1 tablespoon glucose 
  • Zest of 1 lime 
  • 1 cup chopped white chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons white rum 
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 
Marzipan:
  • 5 ounces marzipan
  • Brown food coloring
  • Melted dark chocolate, for decorating
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting

Directions

Special equipment: a 1/4-inch dowel and a disposable pastry bag

For the chocolate wafer mix: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Mix the egg whites, flour, powdered sugar and cocoa powder in a small mixing bowl until well combined. Add the melted butter and mix well. Spread the mixture into 4-inch-diameter rounds on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes, then use a spatula to roll them on a 1/4-inch dowel to form pipes.

For the mint mojito filling: Bring a pot of water to a boil. Blanch the mint leaves in the boiling water for 2 minutes, then transfer them to a saucepan with the heavy cream and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and allow the mint to steep in the cream for 20 minutes; strain the heavy cream and discard the mint. Heat the cream, glucose and lime zest in the saucepan until the mixture comes to a boil. Pour over the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes. Blend using a hand-held blender until well incorporated. Add the rum and butter and mix well.

For the marzipan: Color the marzipan with the food coloring to get a light brown shade.

Fill a disposable pastry bag with the mint mojito filling. Pipe the filling into the chocolate cigar wafers and refrigerate until the filling is firm, about 20 minutes. Take dime-size pieces of the marzipan and roll them flat. Using a fork, make indentations to resemble brooms. Attach the marzipan brooms to the filled chocolate wafers using melted dark chocolate, then dust with cocoa powder.
