Any one for Peppermint Creams?


Peppermint creams recipe
 

Preparation time

less than 30 mins

 

Cooking time

less than 10 mins


Serves

Makes 15-20


Ingredients
1 free-range egg white

½ lemon, juice only

1 tsp peppermint flavouring

425g/15 oz icing sugar, plus extra for dusting

175g/6¼oz dark chocolate


Method

Whisk the egg white in a bowl until stiff peaks form when the whisk is removed. Slowly whisk in the lemon juice, peppermint and icing sugar to a stiff paste.

Tip the peppermint mixture onto a work surface dusted liberally with icing sugar and roll out thinly.

Use a 5cm/2in cutter to cut out circles and place them onto a baking tray. Chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or until the mixture has set.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. (Do not let the base of the bowl touch the water.)

Dip each peppermint cream into the melted chocolate and set aside on a baking tray. Chill the peppermint creams until set.
