Our Christmas Week

This week we began Mission X to train like a NASA Astronaut. Along with class 4 we listened to the Mission X song, explored the Mission X website and looked at blog entries from other classes around the world, before going outside for our Mission X photo shoot. We look forward to learning about fitness and nutrition for space travel.

Here is the recipe that we used:



200 grams of icing sugar

1/2 to 1 tsp of peppermint essence

200g (weighed) of plain chocolate

3-4 tbsps of cold water



Place sieved icing sugar in a bowl.

Stir in the water and the peppermint essence until you have a very stiff paste.

Roll into balls.

Put them on to a piece of baking paper and flatten them.

Refrigerate for about an hour.

Melt the chocolate

Remove the mints from the fridge.

Dip them one by one in the melted chocolate and then place them back on the baking paper.
