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.

hehehe I m glad you like them, they are rather addictive, I made them three times over Christmas once I found a super quick and easy way to roll them out and coat them in chocolate :)

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.
