Peppermint creams remind me of when I was little as they were the easy sweet to make. I was reminiscing about them with friends the other day and this inspired me to make some, and then I thought about what a lovely treat they would be wrapped up as a little token gift to Mummy’s and Grandmother’s on Mother’s Day which is only a couple of weeks away now.
I love having Mother’s Day – to me it is like an extra birthday in the year! A day where Mummy gets her own way and that can;t be half bad at all!
So here is the recipe for my little yummy treat, which really did taste as yummy as I can remember!
30ml of double cream
300g of icing sugar
1 egg white
Basically you throw it all in to a bowl and whisk it together until you have a dough. If it looks too runny then just add more icing sugar, but you need to be able to roll it out!
Once it is in a dough, icing sugar up your work surface and roll it out flat but not too thin. Choose a cutter shape that you like (you really need a small one and I ended up washing up one from the playdoh box!) and then cut out you shapes and put them on a baking tray.
Keep rolling and cutting the leftover dough until you have none left.
Leave to dry out for a bit.
Melt some white chocolate.
Spread a bit in the middle of each peppermint cream and then sprinkle with cake topping.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy, as we used to say as kids!
