400g icing sugar, sifted
4 tablespoons Absinthe
3-4 tablespoons water

Mix the ingredients in a bowl. You're making a fondant, which is a thick icing, like royal icing. It should come together like a very stiff dough. Try to keep it as dry as possible!

Roll it out on a board dusted with icing sugar, dusting your hands and rolling pin with more icing sugar. The easiest thing to do is to roll out a long sausage shape and slice it up.

Lay the pieces on a wire rack to dry, and sift icing sugar over. If you don't have a wire rack, put them on a plate and turn them a few times to ensure they dry fully.

You can dip the shapes in melted chocolate for an even more calorific and decadent sweetie :D Please note that these are white, if you want an absinthe colour, add a little green food colouring when you are mixing the ingredients!
