Peppermint Creams + Recipe by claremanson Peppermint Creams + Recipe by claremanson
Peppermint Creams coated in dark chocolate! Tasty, quick and easy treats that are just perfect for making as Christmas gifts which is exactly what I'm going to be doing this year.

This was so much fun and making the peppermint creams, rolling it out into a sausage shape and slicing it only took me about 10-15 minutes! That simple and no baking involved! Brilliant! Obviously it took a little longer to coat in chocolate but you don't even have to coat them at all if you don't want to. Either way make sure you leave them out over night on some greaseproof paper before bagging them else they will stick together. As you can see by the photo i will be wrapping handfuls of the peppermint creams in small cellophane bags tied with ribbon which along with coating the peppermint creams in chocolate and using water instead of cream as the wet ingredient should help keep them nice and fresh for a week or so.

FAQ
:bulletgreen: Icing Sugar=Confectioners Sugar
:bulletgreen: 250g = 2 cups i believe (correct me if i'm wrong)
:bulletgreen: Don't like peppermint? Then simply replace it with other flavours/essences such as orange, lemon, strawberry etc, etc and just change the colour to match.
:bulletgreen: If your chocolate over cooks and goes a little gritty and lumpy add a touch of vegtable oil to help loosen and bring the chocolate back to a usable consistency.
:bulletgreen: How many peppermint creams you make depends on how big you make them, I make tiny ones therefore make loads.

Another idea of how to present them

Apologies for the double watermarking! Lots of problems with art thieves these days.

These look amazing! I think I'll make these for the holidays. :heart:
Do you prefer water or cream in yours? :) How does it change the flavor/texture?

i prefer water for presents as i worry they will go off quicker using cream than water as they are not stored in the fridge.

I love the recipe! It's easy and quick (well, as quick as it can be, lol)
I have a question, though; here in my country it's summer so I guess it will take longer to harden, right? I was wondering if it would be convenient for me to put it on the fridge or something like that. Thanks in advance!

It really is just personal taste, some like it firm and crumbly, some like it softer so literally just add a tablespoon at a time at first then when it starts to come together just a few drops as you don;t want to over do it as it's hard to get it back t the right consistency.

You can try adding little by little the water/cream until you see it won't crumble, I think the consistence is much like the play-doh owo

So I may have crashed and burned at attempting this... One tablespoon too much water was not combatted by adding more sugar. I may have mint puddles rather than creams. >.<

I use frothy eggwhite as a binder, but am always anxious about the freshness of the egg, so I might try your recipe next time.

when doing my research most of the recipes used egg white but i hate to use raw egg plus they need to keep for at least a week or more so i used water, if making for me i would have used cream as they wouldn't last that long!
