59  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / peppermint creams with variation recipes for orange/lemon and coffee on: November 13, 2008 03:30:21 AM
225g royal icing mix (not ready made royal icing)
Boiled water
Peppermint essence
Melted chocolate (optional)
Put the royal icing mix into a large bowl. Add 1tbsp water to start with and mix well.

Add more water 1 or 2 tsps at a time, until you have a very stiff mixture which holds it's own shape.

Add a few drops of the essence and mix well...you can also add a few drops of green food colouring (optional). If the mixture is sticky add some more royal icing mix or icing sugar.

Knead the mixture in to a firm paste.

Either roll out until about 1cm thick on a surface dusted with sieved icing sugar and cut into shapes with a small cookie cutter, or form into small balls using your hands and flatten.

Place the peppermint creams onto greaseproof paper, and allow to dry for a few hours.

If you want to make your peppermint creams extra special, melt some chocolate and dip half of each sweet into the melted chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off, and place the sweets onto greaseproof paper. Allow to set for another hour or so.

Put into sweet cases and store in an airtight container for upto 1 week.


Lemon or orange creams - make as above but use lemon/orange juice instead of water, and add a little grated zest instead of the essence.

Coffee creams - make up some strong black coffee, using 2 tsp coffee granules in 4 tbsp boiling water. Use this instead of the water and essence
